Little Roy Mentioned in the NY Times!

Little Roy's magnificent album of reggae Nirvana covers, Battle for Seattle, gets a nice, prominent mention in The New York Times' Travel Section today in an article by Joe Levy called "Rockers at Sea" about music cruises (essentially glorified booze cruises for Gen Xers and Boomers with Weezer, Kiss, Kid Rock, Kool and the Gang, Frankie Avalon, etc.):
Things were a little weird from the moment I stepped onto the Weezer Cruise. Like a lot of my fellow passengers — indie-rock fans who had signed up for a three-day voyage full of bands and beverages — I’d never been on a cruise before. So I don’t know whether most of them begin with a staff member high-fiving each and every person who comes off the gangway. But I’m relatively certain most don’t have a welcome center with a D.J. playing a reggae version of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box.”

“I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black,” Little Roy sang while I tried to figure out where my cabin was. Welcome aboard!
