Femmes bassist Brian Richtie has lobbed a hot stuffed baked potato of a lawsuit at lead singer Gordon Gano, claiming he should be recognized as co-owner of many of the Femmes’ most popular songs–possibly after being pushed over the edge when he heard “Blister in the Sun” being used to hawk jr. bacon cheeseburgers–and demanding a recount when it comes to royalties and whatnot. Gano says he’s taken aback by the claims since things are still amicable enough among the band to tour. Personally, I think Ritchie is just bitter over Wendy’s phasing out the Superbar. I know I am.
