Thee Oh Sees +1 - YouTube

Hats-off to Pitchfork.com's Pitchfork TV for an excellent mini-doc.
I only recently-say within the last year-discovered Thee Oh Sees and was crushed to find out they weren't new and that I had missed, what? 8 or 9 releases? As things stand now my busy schedule doesn't permit me to spend the time getting to know this band the way I should.
This video shows exactly how Rock and Roll is supposed to be. At the bottom of the post you will find the song that introduced me to them....the first time I heard this tune I immediately remarked how nothing has grabbed me this way since the very first time I heard Soul Coughing nearly 20 years ago.
Unique, bizarre, and utterly grounded in the roots of rock and roll, "Stinking Cloud" is like a garage band on acid recording at Motown.
Enjoy!
Cheers! C.
