I’ve noticed his social media pages have been more active recently. I wonder if someone is managing them, or if he’s doing all this himself?April 2, 2019 at 7:18 am #98907
Yes, he has a proper Facebook and Instagram page indeed, it’s nice. I doubt he’s behind it actively, probably just validates the content on occasion but who knows.
If he needs an official website, we can just link him this place… 😛April 5, 2019 at 9:09 am #98910
So many people wanting an Oingo Boingo reunion in these Facebook comments lol. However, I think they could make an easy buck with a remaster of the Boingo albums, in a boxset for instance. Their discography is not even well represented on streaming services…April 5, 2019 at 5:26 pm #98911
I would be ecstatic if they just released the last Boingo album with the unreleased studio tracks (Vultures, Water).May 8, 2019 at 1:15 pm #98939
Just booked tickets for the ‘Elfman Gala’ in Glasgow. It’s the UK premiere of the violin concerto.August 16, 2019 at 7:42 pm #99000August 16, 2019 at 8:17 pm #99004
You can just feel the condescension…. I wish I could’ve seen the interviewer’s face when he said ‘commission slut’ haha.
