I've been dutifully playing "Funeral" for a couple of weeks now, and while it's not bad, I can't say that I see what all the fuss is about.  I'm glad I wasn't the only one to see the Talking Heads connection, mainly in the vocals.  I'd rather listen to "Fear Of Music" any day, though.

Did anyone see them on Conan? I downloaded their performance, I have to say it was about the weirdest fucking assortment of characters. Those two guys beating on anything that makes noise, the headbanging violinists, the shaky-voiced guitarist.....man that was bizarre. It was unbelievably chaotic (I can't even imagine how they write songs together), but strangely some music was coming through. I bet it makes for a great show. BUT I wouldn't say that I liked them.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

well, it's official. OVERRATED.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Oh, snap. Do I hear a banner title?! Overcized! Like most of the posters here.

They're fucking nuts. They're one of the only bands my other message board talks about.

Here's a working link to the Conan performance. Pretty interesting, especially the second half.

Haha, in some way it reminded me of Slipknot...the singer sounds just like David Byrne.

That girl ruins the whole performance by singing a 100% false and making the harmonica sound like a dying cat.

Accordion? But yeah, for some reason her pitchless singing never bugged me. I guess it was easy to pass over for all their theatrics.
