Who else has heard this band? Dumb name but really really good band in my opinion. What does everyone else think?
I listened to them a lot today. Good stuff.
but I reckon this is mostly the singer's voice, if he sung a wee bit different I don't think people'd think it was such a rip off.
I get where you're coming from, and there is a strong kinsella influenced sound in there, but I think they are a lot more than just derivitive personally.
The vocal is very similar but the music is much less cacophonic.
i do like the album, but it's the most blatant kinsella rip off i've ever heard (that includes this town needs guns)
The songs are ZO GOOD! I defy anyone not to want to party when Look Down or Motivational Song is on.
I honestly think you're missing out though, they provide me with some good pump-ups
and yes, they do sound quite a bit like Cap'n Jazz.
Better than MOST of the Kinsella stuff.
I don't need some chump telling me "oomghg THYR SO RUBBISH. THEY JUST SOUND LIKE CAPNJAZZ BLAH BLAH."
Take a hike and suck it up. You're boring.
(they also sound a lot less like c'nj than people make out.)
SEE! EVEN I CAN PLAY THIS GAME!
of the kinsella stuff, it's not boring, it's not watered down pastiche.
Anyone noticing a trend here?
With you? Why on earth would i care if it 'held weight' with you?
But I think a band like this stands out so much as it's not a style that has been heavily emulated. I find it funny that there are seemingly endless rounds of say, gruff punk, hardcore or screamo bands and noone bats an eyelid (not saying you do, just an example), and yet a load of people shout CAP'N JAZZ as soon as they hear Algernon as though it's a negative thing.
On the other hand, I agree that the level of pastiche that this band stoops to is pretty funny, but it's just so that I like it. Sorry.
And seriously, the music doesn't really sound all that much like Cap'n Jazz. Much more tapping, much less cacophonic, much neater etc. The vocals are very similar though
More polished production does equal more tapping.
thanks for the heads-up matt. there's not many for sale in europe (and the dude is really nice) so act fast!
Remi's a good guy!
he always reminds me of ratatouille now <3
do you like this band or not?
Probably a little keen.
this band exist, get over it.
sure it sounds like Cap'n Jazz and god knows how many other Kinsella bands but who actually cares when it's this much fun?
