I am milking a neutral obsession (N.O. = when yr compelled by something, but as negative as your are positive on it (creating balance), but just obsessed still none the less) with this band The Sleepy Jackson . I am not sure if anyone likes this band because that website I linked has 5 "posts" in it's three fan forums and no like, fun splash page with excessive flash and videos of them, despite being on EMI.

I have to tell you that when I hear the first song, with it's OTT (over the top) strings arrangement, all I can think of is the episode of the Gong Show where the two 16 year old twins sit on the floor, in their nylon dolphin shorts and kneesocks, spead eagle and with tremendous, eroticized slow-care PEEL AND EAT BANANAS. Did anyone else ever see this?
The Sleepy Jackson came out last year on Virgin, it's like a good Air album and a second-rate ELO album mixed equally. The cover looks like a flyer for a show of Troubleman bands, and the songwriter has the made-up sounding name of LUKE STEELE. Telling yr parents you were going on a date with a professional musician named Luke Steele is the only thing more wacky than naming a newborn baby Luke Steele.
I don't much abt SJ, but I did see that Gong Show banana thing. In its way, possibly the lewdest thing ever broadcast on television by a network. Which now probably means that Powell and the FCC torch-bearers will never let it see the light of day in reruns again. Pity. Also, I knew someone in college real name of Steele Fortune. Good date name. He had a bud name of Roney, first name Pepper. For real.
i thought it was popsicles they fellated.
nah luke steeles his real name. got a little sis too, katy steele. she's singer for another aussie band little birdy.
sleepy jackson have quite a few supporters here but all the online stuff is somewhat disorganised i guess
"Telling yr parents you were going on a date with a professional musician named Luke Steele is the only thing more wacky than naming a newborn baby Luke Steele."
DA** YOU!! My name IS Luke Steele. (no relation to Sleepy Jackson or Manchester United)

Piss off dumb ass! Luke Steele is more creative than you shall ever be (i can tell by the way you wrote your post). SJ are a wicked band
