Only after searching for a different band on the Bands Page did I stumble across Shane Curry's music. I was looking for MP3s from the band People Eating People (they weren't up yet), and Shane's bio is all about why he occasionally takes up vegetarianism. "Not because I love animals, but because I think they're creepy," he says. His quiet piano ballads are less goofy than his bio, but even the slow and sad ones feel playful. Maybe it's the photos of him with the puppets, maybe it's his charming but slightly cartoonish voice, or maybe it's the fact that Avenue Q is on my mind, but I could see a green-haired puppet singing the cleverly worded "Undeserving" from a Broadway stage during the poignant part of a musical.
