Some may know the beginning of the story:


God created the earth. Boy (Dan Kurtz) meets Girl (Martina Sorbara). Boy marries Girl. Boy and Girl make a demo in their basement called "I Get Around."



Some may know the next part:



Boy and Girl put together band (Enter Will Stapleton and Joel Stouffer). Band plays shows. Band meets people in shiny suits dangling money and enticing them to move across the ocean. Band moves across the ocean. Girl sings a song with Bassment Jaxx. Band makes debut record, "Galore." People in bomber jackets from band's home country also offer a record deal. Tony Soprano shows major love for Journey.



And many may know what comes afterwards:


People in shiny suits promise megastardom. A single of "I Get Around" gets released. Leftfield pop lovers and big shiny media get so excited they call band "Better Than Trees!," hail their "sass and confidence all too missing in pop," and tell them their music is "ace shagtronic pop (you tell us??)."



And a little bit later:



1 Boy and Girl and one band member (Joel Stouffer) decamp to studio to do it all over again. The other (Will Stapleton) heads off to solo pastures. People really like Barack Obama. The band releases the 2nd album's title track ("Fixin To Thrill") to great fanfare from people who spend a lot of time in front of computer screens. Band thinks Jean Paul Gaultier's idea for Girl to make a record with Euro pop/house master Martin Solveig and give it away free is a fine one. Kanye gives them love on his blog. More people in front of computer screens (as well as European and Australian radios) do too.



And now:


Band finds a kindred spirit (Chris Huggett) to step into the guitarist chair. Band finishes 2nd album and books tour dates across the globe. Other nice people ask to help spread the word further. Band hopes for a few more chapters and a happy ending.
