They are fucking amazing - a modern hardcore band riffing on Hardcore-era Devo. Alien, energetic, the right mix of catchy and fucked.

Never seen 'em live, desperately want to. I dunno if they're even still active.
Kerouacian as fuck.

I've watched this so many times since it was posted online a few years ago. Nothing about it sucks, besides it being too short.

S)A worded it better than me, but The Coneheads are (most likely intentionally) otherworldly. That's not something you can say about a lot of current punk bands, DIY weirdo punk, or not. They just sound like themselves and are their own brand of odd. To borrow from above, the Devo comparison is a good one, though.

As a bonus their member nuclei have split into a huge amount of other bands, and many of those bands are good-to-great. Those other groups include the Liquids, CCTV, OOZE, D.L.I.M.C., Gordon Spicer Band, BUGG(are you seeing a common theme here?), and plenty more.

The main Conehead is some guy named Mark who is in most of those other bands and seems like a legitimate fan of recording, releasing cheap cassettes and having an insanely minimal internet persona. Any stuff he puts out on his label goes quickly through small distros and stores, but besides that you'll have to either see shows where his bands are playing or get to writing some snail mail to get whatever you're looking for. I've done the latter because I couldn't make the one show CCTV played here in Seattle last year.

Anyway, even if I didn't enjoy The Coneheads and their music, they'd still be Not Crap.

Their lyrics are fucking great too.

A strong young man
In steel toed shoes
Kneels at the alter of 1982

The lord sends the music
From up above
To be received by the fingerless glove

Society, worshipping
Mediocrity, disgusting
Displeases me
I want it dead

You can act like your shit is raw
But recycled shitty riiffs
Make recycled shitty songs

You can take a walk
To the Doc Martens store
And bang your shaved head up on the brick wall

One of the smartest new bands I've been exposed to in a while. And they're from The Region.

Anyone here know how to get in touch with these guys? PM me. I think you can only do it via mail.
