I was at least hoping it was a real commercial. I made it to 0:56. What's my prize?
Congratulations! You have 11 seconds less soul intact than I do.

You should have me write it next time.
There, proof that I watched the whole thing.
Fuck you, this is awful. But after skipping around the youtubes for a bit I have a new appreciation for this band. Don't think I actually like them yet, but I've seen a couple songs - one of which I just put on 73q - that aren't bad. And these folks seem to be putting on a good show for their audience and making an effort. Yes, they aren't very good. However, they are trying hard, and they're not just hacks; they're not geeks off the street. Even cut-rate musicians get to be called musicians.
There's nothing wrong with the whole vaudeville revival thing. It's big in Cali I guess. I was playing a show in Los Angeles and there was a group similar to this. Sort of a steampunk vibe, and one of the best keyboard players I've ever seen. To be honest, it was a hard act to follow, given that we were just a three piece. But they also weren't annoying as all fuck.
Sorry mothership, I think I wrote that when you were writing your response, and yeah that's a really good song :)
I know! that Fire Fire song is really quite good, and the rest of their stuff seems to be so mediocre. It's a shame.
I could live with the Daft Punk cover. This, this song is just garbage. Could you guys submit one of their better songs?

Crap, I went to school with these people.
Do tell! In a way they remind me of a sort of commercialized Black Heart Procession, also from the San Diego area. The difference was.. well it's hard to explain. Seeing them live was like being at some weird gothic, noir-ish beach party, or I guess like being in a David Lynch film on MDMA. The subculture really fascinates me.
There isn't much I can say on the matter. I used to see their flyers for shows everywhere on campus and my sister might of had a "thing" with one of guys in the band but that's about it. Around 2009/10 there were a bunch of bands doing more or less the same thing, it blows my mind that these guys are still around.
To keep this short theater people should stay out of music.
That was me in high school. I was in bands and the theatre people got the parts in musicals. Somehow it was very symbiotic.

I made it to around 38 seconds and stopped at red hair handlebar mustache hipster.

that was excruciating
also if they're supposed to be steampunk why do they have cellphones and roombas
It's okay as long as the cellphones have giant gears and goggles stuck to them.

I didn't think I could hate something more than steampunk, but then I saw that guy's mustache.
The New Meat
Adding "punk" to shit is for old people, the new hotness is "core."
Or perhaps "gender."
Well, x-punk is not just a musical genre, it's a techno-retro-futurist-fashion statement as well. y-core tends to be just about the music.
I guess you could have, like, steamcore, or atomcore, or whatever; crunchier, djentier versions of said cyberpunk derivatives. But that wouldn't really be anything *new*, you'd just be taking the old tired steampunk aesthetic and polishing it to a sharper edge.

The one with the sunglasses is slightly less intolerable than the other two, especially Mustache-bot, because you don't have to see him bugging his eyes out as part of his terrible mugging.
|RomeoGunn - 2014-09-03 |
You know I heard some of their older stuff like Honeybee and it was actually pretty nice, a weird harmonic.... robot country? But this is truly awful, they should definitely stick to the country schtick.
|John Holmes Motherfucker - 2014-09-03 |
Well, I liked it. I watched it five times just to prove that it wouldn't ki
|StanleyPain - 2014-09-03 |
I've never seen such a trainwreck of trying to be NERD CULTURE LOLZ RANDOM mixed with dumb subculture that tries to take itself way too seriously. I guess that's admirable on some level
|Jet Bin Fever - 2014-09-03 |
I can't rate this. Just fucking make it go away.

This is one of the worst things I have seen on this site.
