Actually, he mentioned them twice; the second time just to point out that they're signed on his label. Since they're supporting Gwar on this current tour I think it seems adequately relevant.

I dont like phil. Just because he is showing his face he is making this a publicity stunt. If they are on tour together I think that he could have done it personally.
