I Like This: Minus the Bear

This band has perhaps the best story-behind-the-name story of all time. According to MtB lore, someone from the band asked a friend about a date he had the other night.

“How did it go?” he was asked.

“Great,” he replied. “You know that old TV show BJ and the Bear? It was like that–minus the bear.”

Check out this single from their upcoming odds’n’sods collection entitled Lost Loves. (Via Noisey)
