^ That's the most knowledgeable, sensible post in this thread so far. Thanks Neapolitan!

I agree the band name is memorable, and quite off-putting imo, but the album title, "Yesterday is....." is an improvement, and the music appeals to me a lot. I like the guy's voice, the straightforward guitar and the kind of deliberately artless lyrics. Instead of listening to songs, it's like listening to a guy ruminating about his life. So thanks very much - I'm currently enjoying the second track:-

"Oh how rude of me to bring my thoughts into your bedroom.
Is it condescending to be so scared I might hurt you?"

Not many people sing things like that, afaik, but that's more what I expected emo to be: a kind of endless, convoluted, crippling self-analysis. Great Stuff!
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
