Lost at Scene

After spearheading the post-punk revival, GoGoGo Airheart is still on its own island.

So honestly, Vyas doesn't have the slightest bad taste in his mouth when it comes to being outshone and outsold by his legion of protegés?

"Dude, we did it first," he confesses at last, finally showing a crack in his easygoing modesty. "It's crazy, 'cause so many of these popular bands have either been directly in contact with us or have heard of us, and I definitely feel like they've been influenced by us. I mean, of course, we didn't really invent anything; the shit was done first decades ago. But I feel that what we're doing is still ahead of the pack.

"Sometimes," he concludes, "the leaders have to take the fall so that the minions behind them can kind of take over."

Winging it: Ashish Vyas (from left),  Andy Robillard and 
Michael Vermillion are GoGoGo Airheart.

And so, just like the star-crossed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, GoGoGo Airheart is a daring pioneer lost somewhere in the dark waters of enigma and myth, perhaps never to adorn the cover of Spin or get name-dropped on The O.C.Fuck it. Some mysteries are better left unsolved.
