W vs. E beef squashed?

Any hard feelings over President Bush's 2000 campaign issuance of a press release on the "obscene" nature of the Eels record, Daisies of the Galaxy, have apparently subsided...at least, on Eels frontman Mark "E" Everett's end.

In the spirit of reconciliation, E invited the president in an open letter to the band's show at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in DC later this month. Who knows? Maybe The Decider will make a guest appearance...we already know he has sick bongo skills.

In addition to E's just-published memoir, Things the Grandchildren Should Know, Eels have a new best-of collection, and will tour throughout spring.

They've actually accumulated a decent body of work since the mid-90s heyday, especially the record, "Electro-Shock Blues."
