That's a rare flier! I wonder if I've even got a copy.

Question for anyone who knows the origin of the band name "Jarvis Brown". Were they named after this guy (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=brownja03), this guy (http://legis.state.sd.us/sessions/2001/mbrdt144.htm) or someone else entirely?

Since I have asked a question, it seems right to provide an answer to a question posed upon the Team Satan history page, which has been revealed to me by google:
Not really sure why this was called "The Thunder and Lightning Festival" but it was.
Technically not stated as a question, but I can fill us all in, once and for all.
Marveling at this unprecedented line-up, Mike Wing said "Caboose, Smitten, Jarvis Brown - that's like thunder and lightning". We decided it was to be a festival, so that's what we called it.
I think we were wise to make the Thunder and Lightning Festival a once-in-a-lifetime thing rather an annual event, because - I don't know what they say about thunder - but you know what they say about lightning.
