Columbia's "Killers"

It seems that Columbia signed Elkland ages ago, but Elkland have yet to hit their stride. Their record is alright, and their video for "Apart" is kinda cute, with Jon Pierce dancing around like a temperamental toddler, and with Columbia behind them you'd imagine they'd be pretty popular by now... but no. Even after 10 nights opening for Erasure at Irving, Elkland are still playing clubs like The Delancey, which they did last night, along with a host of god awful bands. One reason Elkland isn't successful could be because Jon Pierce believes its a good idea to wear pink pants and a half zipped sweatshirt onstage. While he may look like a toddler in their video, in person he is a hulking and massive man, who looks like he could be on the Russian Gymnastics team... teamed up with tiny guitarist Adam Kessler and tiny keyboardist Joel Tarpin, who look like brothers, its an interesting stage dynamic to say the least. Oh, and Jon's real brother Jesse drums for them. Their set last night was short, possibly too short, but people seemed to enjoy it, especially the gay guys. Even if Elkland don't ever become hit makers for Columbia, they could still become quite successful with the gay crowd.
