The Daily Show Darlings

Creative Loafing (Atlanta)
November 10 - 16, 2005

Chris McKay & The Critical Darlings, a great little buzz-worthy band from Athens, made a surprise appearance on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" recently. On the Oct. 28 broadcast, during a bit about Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers, a clip was shown of a comically confounding confusing comment from CNN's Miles O'Brien. He reference Reagan nominee Robert Bork by opining, "This is an inside-out Bork experience." Jon Stewart then cracked, "The Inside Out Bork Experience, by coincidence, was the name of my first high school band". To further sell the joke, a shot of McKay's band appeared on the screen. In it, Stewart's eyes and hair were pasted over McKay's with "Inside Out Bork Experience" logos on The Darlings' shirts and drum. In other Darling news, drummer Tom Bavis has left the band. Michael Rietveld (Star Zero, Q-Sign) is currently filling in. Interested drummers and other musicians are invited to contact the band via the website. Tell 'em CL sent you.
