Toad the Wet Sprocket: "We Were Never the Cool Kids"

Glen Phillips isn't the type of person to put all his eggs in the proverbial single basket. One of the mainstays of the '90s chart champs Toad the Wet Sprocket, he's diversified his efforts into a solo career, a successful stint with the Americana super group of sorts WPA, and at least a trio of other affiliations on an occasional basis. Regardless, he's currently happy to be back at the beginning, with a revived Toad and a new album and tour that reestablish its penchant for pop and the catchy, utterly infectious songs that made them the darlings of the indie scene throughout much of the '90s.
