I’ve seen this name at record stores over the past few years and wrote them off as some joke band. Holy shit the joke’s on me!!

These cats are crazy talented and their music is complicated as f*ck! They are kinda hipsters but holy what talent!! It’s not for everyone...it’s psychedelic prog or something.

Anyone else dig these cats?

You took the words out of my mouth, Yes I like them they remind me of some 60/70's prog rock bands.

The comments I would have made have already been made. Those guys have done some studying. Great band.

My buddies next door love these guys, and they are really good. They just went and saw them last summer here. They have a large catalog of stuff to check out also.

I think they are associated with a band called the Murlocks.

Rock arrangements don't have to be stupid.A definite eastern/scale/arrangement influence in there.

I didn’t have time to watch that earlier, so I refrained from posting until I did.

Wow, those guys are talented and tight!
I think I’ll have to listen to a little more of their stuff before I can really say if they’re for me or not, but there’s no denying how good they are.

For those who don't understand the Beatnik language.

Dig: to understand

Cat: cool person; beatnik, also cool jazz musician
