Bat Bits: The Music

July 09, 1989

Thank you for your June 18 article, "Batman, the Gamble." However, in your much appreciated attempt to clear up the misconceptions about my involvement in the "Batman" movie, you inadvertently promoted an even more horrendous misconception about Oingo Boingo.

As you mentioned in the article, I believe Prince had nothing to do with the confusion regarding who did the score to the movie. Likewise, I believe your confusion about the band is probably unintentional. Fueled no doubt, by a few of your ignorant colleagues (or would malicious be a better word?).

Boingo is a rock band, not a "musical-comedy troupe." Although we've often taken pokes at rock 'n' roll conventions and attitudes, comedy we ain't . . . We've been a rock band for over a decade.
