last i heard they got signed to a major and then crow (the drummer) finally split. he sorta took care of dexter on the road - not an easy task. i saw dexter pull out a chunk of his hair because he thought crow was trying to outplay him or something. dexter is pretty nutso. friend of mine swears dexter had to interrupt a conversation because he needed to talk to space aliens on an UNPLUGGED telephone. then he came back to the conversation like it was no big deal.
as far as i know, there never was a vatican in seattle. and i worked at the rocket where we knew about all the shows no matter where they were, and i've never heard of the vatican. that doesn't mean there wasn't one, but somehow i can't imagine it slipping by the entire staff of the rocket.
