Hardware Store Girl: Did you guys know there's a recording studio on the island? Why not call them and see if there's a band recording there?

Panel 4
At the control booth, a recording engineer answers the phone.
Engineer: This had better be important. Oh, yes, I do have a band in the studio as it happens. OK, I'l ask.

Panel 5
Engineer talks into the comms mic, revealing the band through the studio window. They look kind of nasty, because they are: They are Festering Suppuration, a Slam Death Metal band.

People asked about Hardware Store Girl, so here she is! I haven't decided on a name yet, and for that matter, we haven't actually seen her in the hardware store, because we haven't been to the hardware store. Proof that I make a lot of things up as I go along, I guess.
The appearance of Tag's new band Festering Suppuration was planned from the beginning though. My only regret is that it took me fifteen episodes to get there. Festering Suppuration have actually been around since the 1990s, but only three original members are still in the band.

A paying gig? They're musicians. They'll be there.

I love how the mixing guys' attitude went from "Don't waste my time" to "This is indeed important!" in the space of only 1 gutter!! :D Love it!

Great page today!
