How you wanna tag my style I am so superior.

Why you wanna hate a thing when you are so inferior.

This band is GREAT!

Thanks mesaxi...Your point about how music should only be written and played sober is always overlooked...Jann Wenner should put out an issue of the Rolling Stone top 100 Sober Bands of All Time

Why all this hate for of Montreal? These guys put on a hell of a live show. Do all of you people not like Ziggy Stardust era bowie? An of Montreal show, like old David Bowie shows, is all about the entire production. It's not going to be have many crazy solos or much 'jamming out'.

Their music isn't really that simple either (to smiley3). A lot of their songs have many tempo changes, especially on the new CD, that wouldn't be the easiest to pull off live. Also, the singing style they bring to the table is difficult as well (much of it has weird timing). Listen to more live stuff of theirs, do not just judge by this one video

I do agree that they aren't a jamband per se, but they are talented musicians. Do they belong on jambase? Not sure, but jambase does put out many articles on their site that have nothing to do with the jamband scene

was smiley being serious or tongue-in-cheek? i hope the latter. C'mon man - for a longtime now, Jambase has been about live *music* period - not just what you would consider "jamband" or not. It's about jam scene, alt country, indie, psychedelic rock, more mainstream rock, and rock that incorporates elements of some or all that i just mentioned and puts it in a blender (ie my morning jacket). In short, it's about rock music, period. This shift happened long ago, i think. AND - it's better, from my point of view, because i've never been a slave to one "scene". I like music from alot of different genres. It's all music, man - give other things a try. Don't judge music or bands on random ancillary things like "glasses". I used to hate it when people would judge the Dead on "tye dyes" or some shit.

Break on through!!!

smiley, wow. show me a post where someone said something about trendy glasses and/or coffee shops and you will convince me that you are not a god damn moron. So many bands Jambase writes about are mainstream i dont know what you mean when you say that this site was founded on non-mainstream bands...well guess what dipshit jambase is mainstream...go listen to bisco you fucking wook
