This month’s SPIN talks about our boys’ recent hott appearance on the WB’s GILMORE GIRLS:
“Rock bands have been appearing ‘as themselves’ on various television programs for decades—from the immortal ‘Doobie or Not Doobie’ episode of What’s Happening!! (featuring, of course, the Doobie Brothers) to the Flaming Lips totally scorching the Peach Pit of Beverly Hills 90210….Now, you can add the Shins to that esteemed list: The Albequerque indie-pop faves taped an episode of Gilmore Girls in February, which aired April 13. Titled ‘Girls in Bikinis, Boys Doing the Twist,’it takes place during spring break in Florida (actually a studio lot in Burbank, California), and features both a performance of ‘So Says I,’ from the band’s latest album, CHUTES TOO NARROW, and Gilmore Girl Rory (Alexis Bledel) having her first same-sex kiss (with Liza Weil, who plays Paris Geller)!…..‘I hope, when I come off stage, I can maybe rub one out,’ said Shins keyboardist Marty Crandall of the hot sapphic action. Drummer Jesse Sandoval seemed more interested in posterity. ’It’s good for the scrapbook,’ he said. ‘When I’m 45, drinking beer on the porch, I’ll pop in the tape and say, ’I was on a television show.” —Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna
