Paradise Found

Two years ago, the Velvet Teen took the road less traveled, and -- as Elysium proves -- that has made all the difference

But the Velvet Teen didn't have that. Nagler and his brother recorded all of Elysium on a PowerBook G4 for approximately 10 grand.

Today, having succeeded at going it alone these past few years, the band members aren't itching to sign a big contract anytime soon.

"We're always open to offers," says Staples, "but it's still not the most tempting thing. I mean, we're traveling to Japan and stuff on our own; we can do things on our own. It can only get more profitable on our own. We're not going to fall all over ourselves trying to get major-label attention. If they really want us, they know how to get ahold of us."
