Wow, do snow patrol hate Americans ...
WOW, DO SNOW PATROL HATE AMERICANS. HALFWAY through this record, buried under a feedback avalanche at the start of 'Little Hide', they've included an answerphone message from bassist Mark McClelland to the abode of singer Gary Lightbody and drummer Jonny Quinn, dropping the bombshell that they must change their name from Polar Bear or face death by big writ from the American band...

Snow Patrol - Late Night Tales: Snow Patrol: Wikipedia Album Entry
Late Night Tales: Snow Patrol is a mix album compiled by alternative rock band Snow Patrol's members Gary Lightbody and Tom Simpson and released through Late Night Stories in September and October 2009. The album is the 22nd in the Late Night Tales series. It was recorded at Jacobs Studios in Farnham & Mayfair Studios in London and was produced by compilers Lightbody and Simpson.
Any compiling artist to Late Night Tales is required to add a track of their own. Snow Patrol recorded INXS's "New Sensation" for the occasion. Lightbody was confident about the cover, and said: "why bother if you're just palely imitating the true form?" Will Self is featured on the series again (after Late Night Tales: Groove Armada), with the second part of his short story, called "The Happy Detective (Part 2)". Simpson and Lightbody created an exclusive mini-mix, which was not featured on the album but could be listened on the Late Night Tales website. An alternate version, dubbed Another Late Night Tale: Snow Patrol was released on iTunes with selected tracks, and a continuous mix of the whole album. The album was released to positive reception by music critics.
