Steven ripping apart (no pun intended) the band?

SOUTH PASADENA, CA - Tonics keyboardist Steven Chow has decided to go to the Bay Area the same time that guitarist Mark Williams is coming down to LA for a recording session. Rumors are, this is no coincidence. According to sources close to the band, Chow is reportedly sabotaging work on the new album to protest the vetoing of several of his songs, including "The Spanish Song," "One Steven Two Steven," and "Stan the Catamaran Man."

Chow's publicist denied the speculations.

"Steven is making a routine trip to Berkeley to visit friends and potential employers," said Neon Phosphor in a prepared statement. "There is no truth to the rumor that he is frustrated by the album's progress. The Tonics will be recording for at least two days prior to Steven's departure, and will continue to work on the album during, and after, Steven's trip. The band is feeling very positive about the album, and is even talking about releasing a triple album.

"I would like to take this opportunity to confirm that none of Steven's songs have been vetoed. In fact, 'The Spanish Song' has already been recorded and will soon be mastered for release as early as October."

The rest of the band did not return phone calls today.

Amidst speculation that Ian is being replaced by a drum machine, the Ian Fan Club (IFC) of Colorado Springs has circulated a petition demanding the truth behind their favorite drummer's status in the band.
