    They are sick!!!

    You hit the nail on the head, the cd is good but live it's powerful. Their stiff yet
    purposeful movement, wildly strong personalities, three percussionist (2 of
    which must likely smoke pcp or they just really need attention and the Herchey's
    chocolate shell on the ice cream center stage a skinny chick playing the accordion.

    FUCK, I need more.

    i saw em a couple months ago.
    i liked it, but i could never shake the fact that :

    1. i fucking hated the guy in the helmet. he was like andy dick, but twice as annoying. i kept praying that the smoke would fill his lungs and cause him to suffocate.
    what flames you ask? the ones from the fire, inside the arcade, stupid!
    2. they sound reeeaalllyyyyy like the talking heads. a fact which was only exacerbated by their incredibly poor (IMO) decision to cover a talking heads song. even before they did that though, i spent the the majority of the show singing talking heads lyrics (quite loudly) over their music and giggling like a school girl.

    all in all, i liked them, and i can understand why others do too, but at first (and only) listen (i'd never heard of them before being dragged to the show) they were reaaaaal 'influenced' in a way that i have problems respecting too much.

    I love this band.. They're all the rage in hipster circles right now.. Which usually means bad news, and I usually have an aversion to that sort of stuff, but damn if this band doesn't kick some ass..

    I've been listening to them the past couple of months.. Went to one of the shows (awesome). Some of the really best music i've heard in a while.

    Seeking I would suggest downloading or buying their album.. Giving it a thorough listen..

    Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) is my anthem of the year.
