T5? Really?

I remember when they used to do month-long residencies are Mercury Lounge, and they surely must have been more popular back then.

^ No, more like total dweebs/nerds/dorks who dig having their inane and uncool interests being put to song. Revolutionary! Let's see if the chicks dig this!

Everyone who is talking smack about TMBG realize one thing. They came from Brooklyn decades before you poseurs and hipsters did.

Everyone who is talking smack about Superfund-level environmental pollution realize one thing. It was in Brooklyn decades before you poseurs and hipsters came.

TMBG: Making music for people who think they like music but don't know what music is.

Haven't had a good album since "Apollo 18." You know a band's irrelevant when they start making kid's albums - although by that logic, Yanni must've been in Venom band decades ago.
