No! Never heard of them, but I'm definitely gonna investigate further... cheers for that!
Know what you mean about Turbonegro!You can't take them seriously and they definitely have some strange lyrics/stageshow things going on, but I think that's why I dig them so much... freaks
They seem to be able to simultaneously confuse and rub people up the wrong way, which I deeply admire...
These guys do a good job of doing the same thing:http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=WSaSgcnEeak
Axl Rose once called them the 'Pigeons of Shit Metal'
! What an accolade!
One of my all-time favourite punk rock bands are the Didjits with Rick Sims... unbelievable that they remained in such obscurity, although Sims' involvement with the Supersuckers is recognised is a bit more. Here's the Didjits:http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=pTh8sWZX8xc
Buy 'Hey Judester', it's good.
Another band that don't take themselves too seriously are Snuff. Jimo-another one for you mate!!
(Not the best sound, but I fucking love this!)http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-FuH6eGo0e0
Their first album, 'Snuffsaidbutgorblimeyguvstonemeifhedidntthrowawobblerchachachachachachachachachacha-

I like this thread-it's made me listen to loads of old stuff and introduced me to some new stuff too (inc. Mastodon, believe it or not!
