Magnetic Fields Cellist Plays The Wiener's Circle

The Magnetic Fields were recently in town to play the Vic Theatre, and cellist Sam Davol decided to treat the employees of controversial Lincoln Park mainstay The Wiener's Circle to a sample of his talents. The words "Take that camera off me, bitch" are uttered. (As are, to be fair, the words "Thank you.") We have a feeling that Stephen Merritt would appreciate such directness. Sadly, we'll never know if Davol indeed indulged employee requests for the Dougie. The Magnetic Fields new album Love at the Bottom of the Sea is out now.
