Other writers have proclaimed their feelings on HAPPY SUICIDE JIM. CASHBOX's Justin Scro wrote the band is "somewhere between Ween and Zappa....The Love Kills Theory are not a band, but a cult."? Opening Band's Joseph M. Pense says, "It's great to see a band so capable of both writing fun songs and lyrically developing them on their own terms."? Neo-Zine's Adam Bernard was so inspired to review the band with, "If music-in general-would take a hint from this band and write like they are doing something worthwhile, the world would be a better and more artistically significant place to live. This is a beautifully odd album," and he is finishing a profile of the group's leader, Cevin Soling for BEYOND RACE magazine.
Cevin Soling, whose first name is pronounced "Kevin," is a New York City-based musician, label owner, filmmaker, writer, world traveler. A&E TV has chosen his song, "Buffalo" by a former band-the Neanderthal Spongecake for the closing credits of their series, CONFESSIONS OF A MATCHMAKER. He runs the record company, Xemu Records, which is experiencing a renaissance of its album, WHEN PIGS FLY, which features unique covers including Don Ho's version of Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey," the Oak Ridge Boys' harmonic rendition of Kansas' "Carry on My Wayward Son," and Lesley Gore's primal belting of AC/DC's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."
