A bunch of Eels news related to Mark Oliver Everett and a documentary about his late father.

Some youtube clips here and here.

An interview with New Scientist, and a piece by E from the Times UK
I’m a singer and songwriter in a rock band called Eels. I never knew much about physics and my father was a complete mystery to me, even though I lived in the same house with him for 18 or 19 years. He rarely spoke. He was an ever-present lump of flesh sitting at the dining room table every night writing out crazy calculations on a pad of paper. That’s about all I saw of him.
I seem to remember people claiming that Eels were a ripoff of Beck back at the beginning, but listening to that last Beck album, I thought it sounded like Eels.
