In late 2008, legendary rock band far announced that their original line-up would reunite for a few UK dates. Meanwhile, the band booked two LA-area warm-up dates under the pseudonym Hot Little Pony in order to deflect attention while they got used to playing together again. They even went so far as to create a MySpace page under the fake name and recorded a cover of a longtime favourite song of theirs, Ginuwine’s R&B hit - ‘Pony’. Fans in the US downloaded the track so frequently that their website traffic soared. ‘Pony’ reached heavy rotation on the biggest modern rock radio stations on the West coast.
