For all of you who have been wondering whatever happened to the Rock and Roll Chowder, VH-1 "Behind the Music" reports that in between the tears and the laughter, they are back together. Mark Weigel reports that the band has reunited to record an album called "In the Memory of Cain." The CD was available on in December 2001 and includes some old favorites, as well as material written after graduation.
