The description below is actually of Robert Randolph and the Family Band, in fact, who will be performing at the Grammys (Grammies?) this Sunday, sayeth NPR.
Definintely some dashunds in that band, with bowties, playing a a peice of yarn strung between a bucket and a broomstick.
Get Up Kids, actually, pitifully enough sound exactly like how you would imagine any bad emo band, when described by anyone over the age of 24, sounds like.
K Sanneh's showing the GUKs the back door . Nice.
If you have a spare nine minutes, here is the best-worst emo band ever, who are Canadian and in 11th grade, by whom our whole office is fascinated, yet horrified by. Watch the video. It's filmed in the sunken living room of their parents house, behind a banner with their band name on it. My favorite part is where the singer grabs his pooka-shell necklace like it's noose, and then kicks over his full size keyboard, during the wrenching apex of a song about "being in like", while the band rollercoasters through a sort of Hey Mercedes/Journey hybrid-sound. Just unbeatable, really.Posted by Jessica at February 5, 2004 02:13 AM | TrackBack
