Last Monday’s repeat of CBS’s hit show “CSI: Miami” featured crime analyst Erik Delko (Adam Rodriguez) obtaining fingerprints from a machine that was part of a murder case. In the background were the revolving loops of Jamey See Tai’s guitar and Chad Blevins’s drums playing The Photographic’s song “Secure.” The cut is from the band’s debut full-length, Pictures of a Changing World, released last March on Galaxia Records.
