MONDO COZMO: THE SECOND TIME AROUND
CHICAGO (AP) — Josh Ostrander (OH’-stran-der) of Mondo Cozmo gets a secret delight in knowing he’s signed to Republic Records. The label dropped one of his previous bands. Ostrander says when he took his demos to the label, executives told him, “We want to do business with you.” Ostrander’s reply was, “You already have. Let’s do it again.” Ostrander’s previous job was in landscaping, and he says he’ll work as hard as he can to avoid going back to it. So is his yard a thing of beauty? Hardly. Ostrander says after landscaping for 12 hours, the last thing a landscaper wants to do is more landscaping.
