the singer used to be in a Van Halen tribute band. He can do DLR better than DLR can these days.

Actually not too bad. The dress mode reminds me of Motley Crue & Ratt around 85 or so. The singer is pretty decent and the musicians are pretty good as well.

I saw them live in a small club right around the time their CD came out. I think there were only around 100 - 125 people there. They were pretty cool, just hung out in the crowd after the show signing shit. I didn't get anything signed since I was hammered and didn't bring anything, but one of my friends got something signed.

They rock live, especially their guitarist. Singer is pretty damn good too. At the time, I remember thinking he might have been lip syncing 2 of the songs with super high notes, but he might have just been that good.

She's my Handicapped Slut = Warrant, She's my Cherry Pie? With the sensibilities of the Bloodhound Gang.

Damn you, been going down the rabbit hole. It amazes me the people they get to perform with them live.

It's funny schtick, but it works because they're excellent musicians. Russ Parish (guitar) is a beast with a serious resume.

While I like the sound, I can't get past the ridiculous lyrics, and they don't really work as a pure comedy band for me. Too bad. I'd love to know about more awesome 80s-sounding bands like Free Spirit.

lol, those were great. Loved the last one. He wasn't waiting around for the singer to do a bunch of talking. Just took over.
