I remember seeing OTC in '05 at Bowery and Mangum showed up. Pretty sure Hawk and a Hacksaw and the Tall Dwarfs opened that show.

The E6 Holiday show at LPR in March was good, but a bit tedious at nearly four hours long

they only did the face-painting thing as a gesture of solidarity. one of them showed up to the photo shoot with a really gnarly pimple...

"Best Psych pop band of the 90s..."

Yeah, I'm not convinced. All I see is a group of color freaks. Holy mackel, Andy!

5:17, that's like pointing out the best log cabin of 2007. Not saying it isn't a great log cabin, but...the world has turned.

Are these guys going for an M&M's thing? Good there's no brown one

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2011 6:33 PM

here's a radical idea - lets judge them by their MUSIC as opposed to the photo shoot. k? you're all idiots. bye!

Posted by Anonymous | July 8, 2011 7:25 PM

I was judging them based on the music

Bye, 7:25
Y'all don't come back now, ya hear?!?!

5:36 what a stupid analogy. Granted, 5:17 shouldn't have included the 90s part on there. Just a great psych pop band doing there thing.

Personally I would have painted my face a tan color. And if you must ask why, I find that color to make me hungry.

you guys realize that jeff mangum was in this band, right? you know, that guy you all pretend to be a huge fan of.

>> yeah but his contribution is very minor and he never really was a touring member. OTC are great on their own.. as is Mangum..
