Becoming Traditional: Chef Menteur

All but the most cynical bands are labors of love. There's too much work for too little return to play music for anything but personal reasons. In the case of Chef Menteur, there are enough structural impediments that members Alec Vance, Dan Haugh, Brian Abbott and Phil Rollins have to love making music. First, they make open-ended, psychedelic music, which has only been really popular if your band's name rhymes with Sink Toyed.
