So maybe Conan’s not punk in the typical sense. But then again, isn’t the whole calling yourself punk thing the quickest way to lose your punk cred anyway? Ted Leo took to his MySpace page to publish his allegiances on the recent Late Night TV wars, and is logically sympathetic to our man CoCo. But his siding comes from a more personal vantage point. Even stranger than NBC’s handling of this whole debacle is the revelation that Conan is the only show that has ever booked Ted Leo. And they booked him twice! Fallon’s music department seems like they practically read Brooklyn Vegan during lunch breaks. What gives, dudes?
