Hey fellas, wanna hear about a new band!? Me neither, so lets talk about one that's been circling the block for awhile while we watched them grow up and away. Since you know everything already, you know that this is John Dwyer's current outfit and it fits better than a pair of classic slim-legged Rustlers from your DaDa's closet whilst all the other dudes are stuffing their muffin tops into some tiny-zippered low-waisted girl jeans wandering the desert searching for free ringtones. Folks with their blinders on may think that the band has finally hit their stride, but they just haven't been paying attention to the fertile grass they've been covering. That camp would be doing themselves a favor by checking out the double LP '3 & 4' on Narnack (more on them later) and the two LPs after that. King Factum and the Ickie Buddies saw them in those days, and all of us welled up with tears when they broke out that saw. Calvin Lee Reeder even used their beautiful song in a MOVIE. I guess what I'm fingerpainting here is that they've ALWAYS been good and they've ALWAYS been different. Like JPD has always been. Take a look at Zeigenbock Kopf if you don't believe me, speaking of 'weird punk'. Yeah, I know some of you didn't like the joke, but "a techno version of the Brainbombs"? And this was six years ago. Aaaannnyyway, Thee Oh Sees have released one of the best LPs ever, recorded by the velvet-eared Chris Woodhouse. I recently curled up in John PHILIP (not Paul, I'm sorry) Dwyer's lap and we typed Q's and A's into buttons...
