For what it's worth, I think the Cranberries swiped the intro for one of their hits from the Dead C's "Crazy I Know"! Don't ask me which one, though.

Greg, I'm not listening to you after you told me in Philly all about your perceived connection between Tomata Du Plenty and Chris Isaak.

one of the most overrated bands of 2008. i guess they got hyped up so much because they were from mexico. the ideas are so unoriginal, even the title "take the sky" is so typical. in every american and english major city you can find some band that can do a Wire cover song. so what.

what a waste of vinyl. they should keep the psychologist jobs.

Wow. So good live. New alb is fabulous. People Who Know Music Better Than Me and You (see above) will always hate on them, all the better to make me embrace them. Best soul act in the Northern Hemisphere!

I agree, while they might be the most exciting band in Mexico, in the States and in Europe there have been tons of bands with that no-wave meets Pink Flag type sound. Just take a look at the Troubleman Unlimited bands from like 1999-2003. They sound like some teenagers who just discovered no-wave, that would be nice but in reality they are like 40 year old Mexicans with serious jobs. WFMU is heavily rotating all the S-S stuff, I guess they give lots of free promos to the director there. That's nice, at least they are not heavily rotating MTV2 type stuff like LCD Soundsystem or Mogwai, like so many other so-called independent radio stations do.

Someone on another blog, probably from the S-S pushy promo team, wrote that they "killed live at SXSW". It's probably not that hard to "kill" there now, that event has become such a corporate enterprise. With all those lousy bands that sound the same and who want to become the next Yeah Yeah Yeah or some other over hyped Brooklyn crud that will fade away after one album.

Maybe someone does actually like them out there. I would rather listen to the Ex-Models make noise for one hour instead of having to hear this bad typical no-wave stereotype for 10 minutes.

Next year they will probably change back into a Mexican ska band.

Hey, there's no accounting for taste, especially when it comes to measuring up to the Troubleman bar. I will, however, say that I gladly pay for my S-S product, and when LL become a Mexican Ska band again (LL: Los Llamarada, Los Lobos, did no one pick up on that missing clue?) I will certainly buy that record too, because they'll probably turn the genre as inside out as they have No Wave (unlike the 8,000 other paint-by-numbers revisionist wannabes out there polluting the stages).

yes their live performances are good , thank you....
