A very underrated band (especially their earlier albums). They're more than just "Whip It" indeed! Who else on here is into them?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not! haha :lol:

Check-out these two songs from the same album "Whip It" was released on and let me know your opinion:

The videos are beyond hysterical, but the essence was their distinctive inventive sound! Their first three albums are must listens!

This one might sound familiar if you've heard Graham's last record.

There have been mutterings of a farewell tour for a year or two now.
I hope they do it. One of my greatest regrets is not being able to see them when they did Forecastle.

(Of course now I'll never be able to see them with Bob2, but they're still really good on the rare occasions they play.)

They also haven't been the same since Alan Myers' passing. He was a vastly underrated drummer. True, they somewhat employed drum samples and machines during the mid-late 80s albums, but his drumming really stood out regardless. Oh I love this performance right here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gcp8osY ... rt_radio=1 Just so dynamic on every front!
