Awesome band, pretty sure there's a thread in the Indie forum. I've not seen them live but my friend has and told me homeboy plays everything on the one guitar using crazy tapping skills.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Whoooooooooa, hold up there.

TTNG do have stylistic roots in the whole Philly neo-Kinsella scene but they're leagues more technically refined and "advanced" in terms of songwriting and musicianship. I think they transcend the rip-offish nature of a lot of the Philly bands that pop up.

Yeah, I agree, but the instrumentals have that sound. I wouldn't calle em a rip off, but instrumentally, they kinda fall into that group. Not meant as an insult at all.

They're instrumentally similar, with the more complex riffs, but they aren't a straight-up Cap'n Jazz rip-off like Algernon Cadwallader.

Their tapping skills are f'ing amazing though. I love TTNG. And there is a thread for them in indie.

Whoops. My bad. I only searched this forum. Should I delete this thread, or does it fit here?

I think like a good portion of stuff can fit in Indie / Alternative forum that fits here... I just like this forum better.
I'm an asshole.

^ Yeah, stuff dies there way too much.

What do you guys like better, the S/T, or Animals? I dig Animals more because of the different corresponding mood switches, but both are great.

Acid has been causing problems on this thread for a while. He just likes attention because he never got/gets enough from his parents or something.

I like Animals a lot more, although there are some awesome songs on the S/T, like 'Wanna come to my room and listen to some belle and sebastian with me" or whatever

I ordered their official tab book a while ago

It's awesome

So far I've only learned Chinchilla, Crocodile, and the intro to Babboon (sp?), but it's a blast

If anyone uh
wants scans

cough

you guys should all check out Meet Me In St. Louis. they're super mathy post-hardcore and kind of a precursor to the newer British math rock bands like TTNG, Colour, DARTZ! and stuff.

That's true. also you quoted me before I deleted the post (cause it made me feel like an ass for some reason) and now I look weird, haha.

oh and does anyone else really dig the split with Cats and Cats and Cats? it has some of the best songs by both bands I think.
