has anyone heard their new record, or simply the band ... if not, then I strongly recommend it. if you are down for some kids on pcp making somethng unclassifiable, than this is your record.

 

mix of some: jazz, rock, ethnic, metal, flamenco, tango, punk, funk, ... with poetic lyrics sung in spanish and english

 

 

not your typical radio friendly band with pop songs about girls of the summer ... they are loud, complex and give you a feeling of being in an apocalyptic opera

I saw them live at the Electric Factory in Philly, last month I think. Truly mind-blowing experience. This band is so talented its filthy - its like AJ's stuff but think musically. They really brought down the house, highly recommended :thumbup

 

Their earlier stuff is great as well, one of the single most original and weird bands out there. Truly unique :o

I bought their first album "De-Loused In The Comatorium" back when it came out. Very different stuff. Some so-so songs, but some very good. & yes as someone mentioned Flea played a few songs w/ them for the album.

 

Nope definitely not your average pop band, but that can only be a good thing.
