This is an Iowa City band that is pretty effing great -- they're playing tomorrow night at the Mill. Reminds me a bit of Galaxy 500, Jesus and Mary Chain, even a bit of Squeeze -- love the octave vocal doubling. "Red Carnation" has an amazing lyric:

Where the paranoid come to get their vengeance
and the maniacs come to get some sleep
where defective and crippled come to walk
where the dumb and retarded come to speak
the abandoned come to find companions
and the pompous come to be made meek
you don't need no invitation
all you need is a sense that you belong
they will pin you with a red carnation
and they'll read your name from the top
of a white rock stone.
