I've heard worse. But not much.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Good man.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Twang wrote:(...) no extraordinary expectations, but (...) fantastic! Just a whole lot of fun. One brother starts off on drums and harmony vocals while the other takes the lead on guitar and vocals and then they switch halfway through. I think the first half edges the second because the younger brother is the better drummer whereas the older brother writes the better songs and has the better voice, but it's no let down the other way around or anything. I think they released the wrong songs for the single.

The younger brother is a bit overzealous with the jumps, kicks, and windmills during his turn on guitar (and looks a bit like a young Townshend anyway), but it's nice to see bands these days have some flair for theater and look like they're having fun up there.


This is exactly what I thought after watching the Amoeba gig. :P

Lady N was riveted too and enjoyed it a lot, especially the first track.

I like the older brother's teen-age Gene Clark vibe, but the younger does indeed look like a pseudo-androgynous twat on all the pics I saw in the music mags... but very much less so in the live footage.

There's some savvy pop-craft in this band's music. Some of it reminded me of 10cc, actually.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Anyone go see them live?

There's also this to look forward to, album out in March. Similar retro vein.
