Check out who I ran into backstage at Club Nokia in 2012, following Madness’ gig. John Avila of Oingo Boingo!

This was after the Madness gig. I asked John if he was a Madness fan, and he told me he was producing a song on Madness’ upcoming album (La Luna).

What was fun was pulling Chris (Foreman, Madness axeman) over and telling him “You know that band Boingo I’ve been telling you about for years? Your producer is the bassist for Boingo.”

Way rad confluence of my two fave childhood bands.
