My GOD, this would annoy me

In yet another sign that I have become a cranky old man ahead of schedule, I must say that as impressive as this video is, and as good as these guys sound, and as geeky as the whole experience is… I would be so fricking annoyed if I were just trying to get from point A to point B and these guys were pulling this crap on my train.

The band is Atomic Tom, and the song is “Take Me Out (iTunes)“. I think we should expect big things from these guys. Of course, I said the same thing about Musical Youth.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

    Every time I visit NYC I get at least 2 performance by people that think they can play instruments and sing.

    Example, just a few weeks ago when in NYC I had a one man pan flute band and then another day there was a couple Mexican dudes playing guitar and singing. Although the Mexican guys weren’t bad, I would still have preferred Atomic Tom on my train any day.

    I miss the times when there was something like a ‘garage band’ …

    Hi!
    these guys are cool, but, talking about how annoying they could be, i think their music is very good, i Live in Mexico City and believe me, every single time you travel by subway, there are people playing music or selling pirated records while screaming, so, for me, these guys are OK, meanwhile, I will have to keep listening to stinky-and-not-good-enough pseudo musicians asking for money in the subway of my city.

    Great post!!

    and as always, Macenstein, a great website!!

    see ya!

    Here’s a problem though… they say “stolen instruments” yet no where is this on Facebook or Twitter. Not signed? Um… they’re on a label and their manager is Sheri Reich from Jive Records. Sheri does A&R there and perhaps to give you an idea of the amount of bull shit the music industry has become check out this link. Want to spend 20-30 minutes for Sheri to hear and “Critique” 4 of your songs? $485!! No wonder the music biz is so F’d UP! More hype and less quality music.
