Do You Like to Mess Around?



Maybe this works:



I have things in my iTunes library that have accumulated without me paying any attention at all. This is one such thing, and listening at low volume at work I was briefly convinced I was listening to some 70s band and the singer might have looked a lot like this:



But with the volume up they do some things those 70s bands don't do. I just don't understand the absence of that metal chug in so much older electric-guitar music. It's so easy and satisfying - how could it have been missed?

Anyway, yes, they're revealed as the usual hipsters.

But already a nostalgia act:
For those who miss the hedonistic days of Williamsburg 2004, this show's for you: Diamond Nights and Cheeseburger play Brooklyn Bowl on February 13. $5.00 tickets are on sale.

Not available in my COUNTRY! Isn't the USA the only country?!? I shan't be back... and I was ready to mess around... pffft.

Ok, I found the Americano version. Very 70's in feel.

The lead actually reminds me a tad of Jeff Beck.

Let me add... his looks remind me of Jeff Beck, not his sound or guitar skills.

Also, I know who is in the photo you posted, but my fragile brain can only come up with Burton Cummings...

That is Bobby Kimball from Toto. Cummings is an excellent guess.

That song has really nice crisp edges. It's not...mushy. I like that.

Also, I do like to mess around, but not with guys wearing skinny jeans.
