Minty Fresh

The Starlight Mints want to be more than just that other band from Oklahoma

The benefit of added technology could not come at a better time, because the Starlight Mints are poised to get heaps of new attention, thanks to a most ironic set of circumstances: They have been invited to open for the Flaming Lips in the States and in Europe. "Yeah, we're touring with them now, which is, whatever," says Vest. Despite his bemusement at the prospect, this is a golden opportunity for a band that has never played outside the United States. Vest is eager to dust off his passport -- and connect with Mints fans far and wide.

"We got some e-mail from a guy in Italy who got married. He sent us this video of his wedding, and the orchestra played the first song ["Submarine #3"] off our first record while they were walking down the aisle," he says. "It was their song -- that really made me feel good. So we know that there are people out there who know about us."
