Ominous Seapods reunion run
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:32:54 PM »
So I should have made a thread about this beforehand, but I just saw 2 nights of Seapods at the glorious Cohoes Music Hall up here outside of Albany.  Man, that band is fucking riduclous!  They don't get super Type II-y ever but holy christ those grooves.  The peaks are raging too.  Wait for the tapes, those shows were fantastic.

Do any of you guys still listen to them?  Their keyboard player and bass player live literally minutes from me and I see them regularly with other bands in the area, and they always play Monopole and It's Good To Be Alive For A Change with their band Raisinhead which is sick. 

Anyway, I know they're before my time but if you guys ever cared even a little bit about the band, you need to check the shows out.  Lots of deep cuts I'd never heard or knew about before (Candy Cane Flame, Gunshot Static, etc).

I remember having some Ominous Seapods as filler on a moe. tape back in the day. I recall really liking a song called Theme For Another Enlightened Rouge.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Never really listened to them, my only real experience with them is seeing their ads in High Times.

They should do a co-headlining tour with LCD.
