I just saw these cats in the subway and they are hands down my new favorite band above or below ground. They are a true old school NYC LES act...rapid-fire yet guttural vocalizations, ferocious trumpet playing, raunchy and rough basslines...everything my neighborhood represents in personality, sound, and appearance.
I did a bit of Googling when I got home, and despite feeling bad for them being so talented and stuck with the rats, I realized that they have performed with The Roots, in addition to being booed off the always awful America's Got Talent (thank god...if David Hassellhoff and his posse of zealots liked this I would unpost it).
Currently there are no mp3s of their music available unless you buy their CD for $10 on the L train platform. But I guarantee you will be hearing more from them in the future.
