Music

I discovered another band I really like in my 40 cent cd pile. It is by Simon and Milo. Had it been described to me first, I likely would have ditched it immediately, but since I gave it a try with no idea what to expect, I realized it was good. They lyrics are quite funny and the music is unusual. I bought the CD because it had an anime/emo look to it. Sure enough, it is emo. However, it is also techno with a good rock & roll base. I'm not quite sure what to call it: technemo? Em-ho-tech?
Consider, if you will, A little sexual frustration
Combined with lack of motivation
And a loss of concentration
I've got a strange disease
I can't concentrate on work
My libido's gone berserk
Now I'm sweating through my shirt
I've got a strange disease

Two weeks ago
You said you'd never leave me
And here I am alone
And in this world of reckless happenstance
Why do good things have to go away
And leave you with nothing
Ya, you left me with nothing
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
And a strange disease
wee ooo wee ooo

Hyper emotional sensations
Sent via television stations
Unaffected by locations
I've got a strange disease
I can't seem to get to sleep
I don't want nothing to eat
Walking up and down your street
I've got a strange disease

(Minnie Mae)
Why did you have to put
so much pressure on me?
You pushed my heart away

(Simon)
I didn't mean to scare you little one
Is there nothing I can say?
Don't leave me with nothing
Ya you left me with nothing
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
And a strange disease
wee ooo wee ooo

Now I'm standing in the rain
Water soaking through my brain
Every droplet speaks your name
And it's driving me insane

I don't want to go to work
My libido's gone berserk
I don't want nothing to eat
Walking up and down your street

But only two weeks ago
You said you'd never leave me
And here I am alone
And in this world of reckless happenstance
Why do good things have to go away?
And leave you with nothing
Ya you left me with nothing
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
And a strange disease
wee ooo wee ooo

Emo, right? Now put it to a rock based, techno track. Many of their other lyrics are actually quite funny and still Emo. While researching them on hte web, I found that they are an animated group. They have a video of their music videos and they're all animated. I intend to get it.
Here is their website. They have sample videos if you click on the subway. Give them a listen.

EDIT: I should also point out the lead singer has a great British accent which only makes it better.
