Kind of like Seal, or McLovin’s fake ID in Superbad. Following in Bob Dylan’s shocking footsteps, Cynics turned electric and marked this on his birthday with his first show at The Monarch in Camden Town, London. Most of the original Cynics fan base have since turned their backs on the man and the music with ex-best friend Tom Hawes stating ‘He was a revolutionary to me, I made my own t-shirts with his face on and everything. But now, now he’s sold out.
He’s gone electric and is dead to me.’ Tom now sells the t-shirts on ebay for high profit. Cynics hit single ‘Memorial Day’ was greeted with great applause from the critics, however Dan Yemin (singer of Paint It Black) claims he wrote it first. Cynics. acknowledged this and invited Mr Yemin to a fist-fight. Dan Yemin has yet to respond. In 2011 Cynics disgustingly added bass and drums to the line-up, but were forced to rename themselves Great Cynics, because a band were already called The Cynics.
