Once upon a time Nolan was in the little known, but much loved punk band Scandalnavia, who's only full-length recording was tragically lost in some guys basement. While Nolan hopes to get around to making music again, in the meantime he is kept busy by writing, performing comedy and trying to making visually pleasing images.
