Anyone here listen to them? Has anyone here even heard of them?

Well they're great, amazing lyrics and guitars. Not a lot of solos, but very nice riffs nonetheless.

I've been learning 'Carry the Zero', tab;

I could play it all night, just four chords and that little riff.

    "I'll do whatever the song dictates - if it doesn't need a real lead, then I won't do one. But if it does, then I'll fuckin' go off." - Mike

    "Japan is awesome; the fans there knew all the words to all the songs...at least phonetically." - Stone

    "I know this song so well, I can smoke a cigarette, have a drink, brush my teeth, take a shit, and mow the lawn while singing it. But I'll only be doing a couple of those things during this version." - EV

    I'm bumping a 12 year old thread to give a shout out to the underrated Built to Spill, and the excellent Keep it Like a Secret.

    Reviving this thread.

    I just hear the song Goin Against Your Mind this weekend.  Man what a damn good song!  I have a nice sound system so the song sounded really good.  A lot better than what comes out of this computer but give it a listen.

    Anyone want to steer me in a good direction with these guys?

    Enjoy! I couldn't find a ticket buddy and by the time someone asked, the show sold out.

    Hope to catch them in Maine in September.   Really getting into their catalog. Only about 6 albums in so far and wished I listened to them sooner.  I love their cover of Cortez the Killer on their live album.    B)
