I'm tempted to agree with you, but the songs horribly catchy ):

they're all right. as far as multinational ensembles go the original mahavishnu orchestra is better, and as far as groups with russian leads go the red elvises are king.

I don't know what SA is talking about, Start wearing purple is awesome. I never even listen to it but it gets stuck in my head from time to time. I guess that doesn't necessarily make it good (after all, the Dr Pepper song also gets stuck in my head without provocation), but... it is anyway.

My weird Shakespeare-obsessed friend got showed them to me. I wouldn't buy a CD, but they're certainly fun to play at a party.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

nothing like seeing them play a smallish tent at reading :D

The whole tent was bouncing, it was like a massive party!

I have the album Gypsy Punks, it's not too bad but it wasn't as good as I wanted it to be :(
