Following Zep's "The Rover" just illustrates how these influential types have such a powerful legacy.

Something in the wicked witty lyrics catches my ears and mind's eye, every time! I LOVE how they ain't afraid to part ways with diction!

First time hearing this. Thought is was Cake at first, as well. You'd eat cake with a fork, so the combination made me think of a spork.

I just love how these guys are as edgy, as weird, as quirky and deep as you wanna go; the way they sing and thrash the music is bliss!

There's a certain segment of the "critics" here that think it sounds cool to bitch, like they know the first thing about the music they shit on.  They remind me of cranky old men who stare out their windows, missing all the mystery out there, just to watch the garbage men take their trash away.

 

No I won't have that, I'm a cranky old man and I like this track!

I've heard the whole CD; a few good tunes but overall not a keeper, IMO.
And yes, this song is very Clash-y.

The only well known band to come out of Sac that I know of is Tesla.  And hopefully we'll never hear anything from them here!

It's nice to hear a Spoon song that hasn't been played to death (and hey, I love Spoon) although this is not one of their better efforts

I saw them at the Mile High Music Fest this summer, and thought they were one of the better bands there.  It helped that they were playing on a smaller stage which made them more accessible.

This song is a tad bit reminiscent of The Clash...maybe it's that sharp downbeat of the guitar, like in Radio Clash.

So right after Led Zeppelin... What was right about music in the 70's This is what is right about music today (and there isn't much right about it, especially on this side of the pond where everybody just cares about Emo today). Our European music loving brethren have it so much better with those British rock bands that know what rock still is (read: Supergrass) and all those wonderful Scandinavian songwriters. We've got Fall Out Boy. :puke:
