Anybody else heard of these guys? I heard about them last week when Dazza posted info on them. A very strange bunch I must say. Although from my hometown of Seattle so I guess that's a good thing in a very strange way.

Here's the video to their song "Sophisticated Side":

I've been wondering - are they just ripping this off from MGMT's video for "Time to Pretend"?:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVnRzEjpUmE

Which itself looks like a rip of Modest Mouse's style in the "Float On" video:

Kind of strange how these things seem to follow in order you know.



I don't get it. All the videos are bizarre. Why anybody would want to emulate this style is beyond me.

Reminds me of these old Quizno's ads:

Fucking weird. And I've taken some nasty dope and I know what weird is.

These guys are on some good shit.

Just exploiting a high profile name imho

Never been a fan of bands/artists that use this sort of helping hand to get themselves noticed

The song is okay.

It's just the lyrics are so stupid. That's the best way I can describe it. Sounds like a college band that's not going anywhere serious.

Or just my honest opinion.

If they were going anywhere they'd have their own Name
A song about a celeb is Ok but to name your band after them is just strange.Then again it is art so I shouldnt be surprised

Judging by this list of bad band names 2007 maybe they chose wisely :roll:

Dazza talked about them in the main page like the last week. Or is it the former week?

Mav: That list is pretty bad man

Plop: I think it was last week. I know it was a week or 2 or so ago.

Are you hallucinating?Mav aint in the building yet :P

Most of the names are a stretch but if your looking for attention what better way....

I'd still settle for Machine Gun Fellatio as my bands name if I was musically inclined :lol:

Sophisticated Side Ponytail is so ridiculously catchy. I kind of like it.

I dig some of their songs. They're not horrible or anything.
