That place is a weird fucked up fantasy world in the middle of the desert built on slave labor! I had fun there too.

I think maybe the washboard guy's last gig was with an organ grinder.
I dunno, back in the seventies, I thought reggae was horrible. Turns out it wasn't. I don't see why I should go on record, declare this band horrible, and risk messing up my track record by possibly being right.
I mentioned it below but my ex wife had one of their albums, but I think this is their newer stuff. To me, it kinda sounded like Gogol Bordello, just sort of kitchen sink of styles. But then again, why not just listen to Gogol Bordello? I hate to speak ill of the dead, but these guys are like Sublime is to Reggae. Just listen to Toots and the Maytals, you know?
The human cheese grinder. My sides, my sides, dey hoit.
So "country" and "psychobilly" are hipster now? Lame. I don't like the Gallows, but I've got friends who are part of that whole scene. I had no idea they were all hipsters. I'll be sure to let them know.
Only two people like psychobilly: my sixty year-old dad, and hipsters.
The last show I went to that I'd file under "psychobilly" was Kid Congo Powers, mostly because of the association with The Cramps and the Gun Club. And boy did I feel out of place. The entire place was black leather and spikes and I was wearing my white fake fur hoodie and bandanas, they had slicked back hair and my hair was a mess.. they were nice but I definitely didn't fit in with that scene and nobody wanted anything to do with me. So really, that's more "scenester" than hipster. Hipsters would say that psychobilly's not hipster and the psychobilly crowd would say they're not hipsters like me, making them hipsters too I guess.. the cycle continues..
Everyone who says they're not a hipster, is a hipster. The louder they protest, the more hipster they are.
These oogles are the new Arcade Fire, the only question now is how long before their Arcade Fire 2004 turns into Arcade Fire 2011.
Funny you should say that, I usually have "Sprawl Pt. 2" on my little mix. I think it's their best song, or at least a really fun song to ride my bike to. Reflector's pretty solid too IMO. Wasn't a big fan of Funeral.
psychobilly is absolute shit i am a hardcore/punk kid from day 1 and psychobilly has always been fucking horrible
There is absolutely nothing steampunk about this.
That doesn't make them any good of course. I imagine I'd like a studio recording of this but as a live show they're not very enjoyable to me.
Can we all stop for a second and make fun of fluffy for misreading the title?
Most street musicians I see busking actually do dress in sort of a steampunk style..

I think I got it "truly bad music is made by people with talent and aptitude that should know better but don't have a clue." "Gypsy-jazz-punk" isn't inherently horrible but these guys should know better than to have that second singer and the lead singer needs to stop fuckin' air drumming and drop 15lbs.

To me, they sound like two bands sharing the stage, playing two different songs simultaneously.
There's this bar I like to go to that has an open kitchen and a jukebox. The pinball machines are basically in the confluence between where you can hear the kitchen's death metal (it's always loud death metal) and usually some brodude's Dave Matthews Band song pick. That's kind of what this reminds me of.
