If for some crazy reason you didn’t watch Desperate Housewives last night, you missed Tokyo Police Club’s prime time network television debut. The Canadian indie rock group has a friend who writes for ABC’s Sunday night drama and namechecked the band in a script a few weeks back. Last night’s episode featured TPC as Coldsplash, a hot local act competing against the men of Wisteria Lane in a Battle of the Bands. According to The Canadian Press, two band members shot speaking lines, but I think they got cut. (I can’t be sure because I watched the episode in 4x fast forward.) (
Spoiler alert: Later in the episode we learn Blue Odyssey’s drummer set the fire to destroy evidence that he strangled a man backstage. Not Dave Monks, but that would have been funny.
Elephant Shell is out now on Saddle Creek.
