[NON-ARENA ROCK] More people have heard of the Eels today than had a couple of weeks ago, thanks to the band's incongruous brush with rock history, accompanying long-dormant Journey frontman Steve Perry's seemingly random return to live performance during the Eels' encore in St. Paul, Minn., last month. Despite Perry's professed admiration for Eels leader Mark Oliver Everett's song "It's a Motherfucker"—conjuring a bizarre alternate universe where Journey songs feature mordantly witty lyrics about disease and death—one doubts that droves of Perry's faithful will declare newfound Eels fandom as a result. The uncompromising Everett—accompanied once again on this tour by Portland musicians Chet Lyster and Allen Hunter—doesn't have an arena-rock bone in his body, having recently filled another album, The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, with artfully self-pitying ballads decidedly not of the "power" variety.
