OMAP is a garage band. We clear on that? The Beginning of the End fronted by Twink...garage rock. '68 Comeback and The Oblivians are not garage rock. It is critically important we all take notice of this valuable distinction--proclaimed courtesy of the one-off, genderless YouTube enigma known as Elbowknees, son or daughter to either an OMAP guitarist or the drummer.
Let's see if I got this straight--overtly political archival footage and lyrics, gratuitous vocal echo/helium effects and more guitar feedback than James Stockdale's hearing aid...obviously garage rock. There--that's finally settled (Elbow, ya poor thing; I think somebody needs to retake that Musical Genre course).
Despite Elbowknee's astute postulation--if you get right down to it, Cocteau Twins are nothing more than ethereal garage--I am quite enamored of his/her old man's project, itself unfortunately a one-off endeavor. Again, very intoxicating spastic psychedelic echoes of B.O.T.E. kicking the base for Mr. Alder, he while presumably under an early 'shroom phase. Where have you drifted, old men at play? I don't know about you but I want OMAP back on the map.
