Over the past few years (as Oneida has kind of fizzled out) I've come to think these guys are about the best thing going. Hit me in all the Krauty sweet spots, anyway. Saw them live this June and they blew the roof off. New album due in January. Anyone else loving them? And more to the point: was the show where they covered Bowie's Low bootlegged? Cause I want to hear it something fierce.

haven't seen that anywhere, but there just so happens to be a new song from the next album recently floating around ~

Era is probably my favorite album of the last couple of years. I've been keeping an eye out for a bootleg of the Bowie Low show. Hopefully the band releases it in some form or another... ie. tour merch, download etc. I haven't even found any video footage on youtube. Anyway, looking forward to the new one and tour.

"Halcyon Days" is great, thanks! I've been jamming this one in my ear-holes over the past few days, also forthcoming on Irreal: http://billions.com/news/news/video-disappears-another-thought

Incredibly inconsistent band - you broke up The Ponys for this? There's plenty to like though, and I was pretty jazzed when Steve Shelley played drums for them, save the actual record he played on. First one's still the best, and I can't get into the singing on any of the records that followed.

Saw them with Steve Shelley, haven't really been into anything on record since. All the aesthetics are there, it's just never really gelled for me on record. Modern acts that scratch my Kraut-spot a bit more are Follakzoid (via Sacred Bones) and Camera (on Bureau B). Some of the recent Kreidler stuff as well.
Also, you should cop the Oneida Brah Tapes (4 of 'em released this year) if ya think they've fizzled out. Their show this Summer was the best set I saw this yr.

Any idea where you can get those Oneida tapes?

Sorry for derailing :) I like this new track quite a bit...probably more than anything else I've heard on record by them. Will definitely peep the full-length when it comes out.

New tracks are great, really excited for the record.

"We recorded [Low] in audio and video and have plans to release it."
