Comments: These guys create some of the catchiest, funnest, Rock and Roll around! Their live show is incredibly entertaining, especially due to drummer/keyboardist (yep, he plays both simultaneously!), Dave Goldberg’s exqusite dance moves/antics.
I’d rather post live versions, but they just don’t do justice to the studio versions. The videos themselves, that is, not the actual performances.
P.S. Glen and other Klyamers, why haven’t we done more BS on here like WE?!
