I've just been offered a ticket to see them on Friday, should I go? What should I try and listen to beforehand?
everybody should experience this band live at least once in their lifetimes. Maybe try and listen to "A Little Man and a House" and / or "Songs for Ships and Irons" Actually just listen to anything you can lay your hands on!
I'd never heard anything by them. But, like, if you remember Ooberman then, well, you know what they'll be like. Only better.
he should go. fo sho.
i've since found out that i can't go :(
all the same
i am an advocate of the sing to god albums
I don't own Ooberman albums, though, and only ever heard a few singles from the first album on the radio.
So my comparison is based on having seen both bands live. I thought Ooberman clearly owed a massive debt to the Cardiacs when I saw the latter. Similar wild changes of direction in the songs and the general air of serious comedy.
you'll never get it until you see them do it live
and the astoria is probably the best place to do it
i'd recommend the same as the other fella album-wise
get sing to god too though
i'm seeing them in leeds, but so wish i could be at the london show
i didn't read that right did i
bummed you can't go
