  5. Hey me too.

  6. Never heard them. I always thought they were a ska band. They were right?

  7. Sweep The Leg Rudy

  8. @Arby_Headphones Never heard them. I always thought they were a ska band. They were right?

    They had a saxophone and upbeat music occasionally, but I would put them firmly square in the math rock category

  9. Not that that really makes a court case for persuading anyone as to their quality

  15. Saw them in a living room in Iowa City in the 90's. A friend I was with liked them a lot and bought a record or two. That is my story about them.

  16. Oh man standing up front when they played live and being on the other end of the Steve Sostak Stare.

  17. Randi & I housesat for their sax player back in 2004 when he taught ESL in Mexico for the summer.
    We haven't seen him since he played this show; he moved to South America almost immediately after and now resides in China.

  18. I saw them in a basement in Mpls, maybe it was called the Den of Thieves?
    Circa 2000. Building Better Bombs opened.
    Intensity in ten cities.
