This is the worst band in New York.

woah. not attractive. can't you get one of your girlfriends to help style the band? if not, hire someone. please. for the sake of everyone.

thanks 4:40 for your thought-provoking insight. I mean, how would we know what bands to listen to if not for people such as yourself pointing out fashion faux pas? The music community owes you a great debt

"woah. not attractive. can't you get one of your girlfriends to help style the band? if not, hire someone. please. for the sake of everyone."

They're now hiring Britney Spears stylist... they were so enlightened by your brilliant comment.

you forgot to mention one thing about these guys...

they suck!

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2008 7:32 PM

They suck?

Hmm. From listening to their music, I thought they were pretty cool. Apparently, though, "Anonymous 7:32" from Brooklyn Vegan dot com thinks they suck...I guess they're not so good after all.

8:41 is not a clever commenter!

I caught these guys when the opened for frightened rabbit. High energy and the drummer was ridiculous. Great band from NYC.
I don't know how anyone posts a shite comment on this band.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2008 10:08 PM

ha. the stylist comment is a valid point. i mean we do have to LOOK at these people as well as hear them play.

Look at the size of the bass players head! LOOK at it! Thats a big fuckin head! Were these photoshopped?

Is that the best you can do 9:07?

Oxford Collapse is one big bag of SUCK.

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2008 9:29 AM

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2008 11:29 AM

I prefer their earlier work.

Posted by Big Head Todd | August 18, 2008 12:30 PM
