The Sub Pop band The Fruit Bats toured through town last week. I was able to catch a few words with them before they left Boston and then did a quick phoner with the lead member Eric Johnson while he was on his way to a Chicago in-store yesterday in Wicker Park. The Fruit bats have been number one on the CMJ charts with their new well-received album, The Ruminant Band.[audio:http://buquad.com/audio/Eric%20Johnson%20of%20Fruit%20Bats%20and%20The%20Shins.mp3|titles=Eric Johnson from Fruit Bats and The Shins|artists=Jen Brown|albums=www.buquad.com]
