    A Case of the Vapours - Islands' Nick Thorburn tries to keep track of his bandmates and their aliases.

    Nick Thorburn has been through a lot with Islands: regular lineup changes; massive critical and popular acclaim; the disappointment of an ambitious yet poorly received sophomore outing; and return to form with a near-perfect pop gem in last year's Va...

    The Watermarks
