Tenacious D

It's like they reached into my mind, pulled out a chunk of it and then made CDs from it and then sold me one of the CDs. I've refined my description of what they sound like by now, they're sort of Country & Western meets metallica meets they might be giants. (and if you can imagine some "Penny-Arcade" style banter in there, so much the better.

Anyone who sings a line like "How about the power to kill a yak? from two hundred yards away with MIND BULLETS!" dressed as a viking deserves respect.

"Your sauce will mix with our and we will make a mighty good goulash"

Dave Grohl on drums is a bonus too.

Brilliant....

mr_wombat: other albums

Dunnow, I only saw one when I was in HMV but I intend on checking back just to make sure (always bearing in mind that older stuff is often hard to find for popular bands, let alone wierdo fringe ones).

They've been doing tours since '99 though so I assume so but there doesn't seem to be anything on the site about anything before this one. Plenty of other songs mentioned there so perhaps some singles or MP3s....

Hmm...

Explosivo!

Hullo! I stumbled across your journal when I was randomly surfing lj. Then I notice this post about Tenacious D! I love Tenacious D so much, my other half got into them earlier this year. Great fun.

If you like Dave Grohl on drums have you checked out Queens of the Stone Age? They are a good good band, and Dave Grohl drums on one of the albums.

mr_wombat: Sir Dave of Grohl

Yeah, I've heard about him and QOTSA a few times since I started ranting about Tenacious D this week. I caught one of their tracks on Phantom FM a few night back, I fully intend to have a closer listen real soon :)

Tonight I go on a full on download session from the the tenacious D site, never in the history of music have I so wanted a band to have had several other albums.

That's saying something.. sacrificing my Dark Age of Camelot playing time to download music...
