The Duke Spirit...

Is the band I want to introduce to everyone these days. Wikipedia tells us they are "an English rock band, whose sound has an allegiance with the early noise rock and grunge bands of the late '80s and early '90s such as My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth and the Pixies," but we all know that Wikipedia is a bastion of skullduggery and malicious lies, so I'll bet the Duke Spirit is really a band of plumbers from Cleveland who started out by clinking their wrenches against some pipes, discovered they were good at it, and added in guitars and drums only much later. Sounds obvious, really.

Here's a video for their song "Love is an Unfamiliar Name," off Neptune:


Here's "Lassoo":


You can also hear "The Step and the Walk" over at the right ~~~>


Digg!
