Showing A New Fusebox

New Yet Old But Still New in an Old Way

OBERTURKHEIM, GERMANY - The S.T. boys are back, as the new band Fly the Fucking plane ... Faggot!

Guitarists Iggy Burnett and Ennis "Lawnmower" Hair, bassist Franz Nibla, drummer Markus Elman, percussionist Jim "Noobies' Friend" Beach and singer/keyboardist W.V. Trash - former members of American legendary supergroup Situation Tranquil - are forming the band named after their 1991 hit, according to their publicist Ralph Sims. They plan to launch an international tour next year, kicking it off in the Galapagos Islands, if an accord can be met with the Ecuadorian government.

"The fans have been wanting to see this for years and years. Now was just the time," the band's new manager Doris Hunter (seen below) said Wednesday.

Original Tranquil vocalist Roy "The Wok" Wokosin said in a statement that he wished Trash and Nibla well, and he made it clear there was still only one Situation Tranquil.

"Dok Trash and KF Nibla are working on a project together which has nothing to do with ST. There is only one ST, and it's spelled with an S and a T," Wok said in a statement released by publicist David "Ben" Benevidez.

"Wok, Lawnmower, Iggy and Elmo will be touring late next year along with a new Situation Tranquil album," Benevidez said. "However, Wok wishes KF and Dr. Trash much success in their project together."

Since its formation in 1981, Situation Tranquil has undergone numerous member changes and reunions. Co-founder Trash, who replaced Wokosin as lead vocalist when Wok left in 1987 to pursue a modeling and fencing career, has been recording new songs with Nibla in Northern California, Hunter said.

The members of Fly the Fucking plane ... Faggot! are currently in the studio, recording their "first" album. Fly the Fucking plane ... Faggot!'s first album will tentatively be titled "Shut Up And Die Like A Man", and is reported to consist entirely of Situation Tranquil covers.
