Yeah, they're pretty good, their only full length (the first 12 or so songs on their 2-disc set) is REALLY good, the rest is decent. The guitar playing is excellent. Loose and sloppy but somehow precise and usually pretty jazzy.

I wouldn't say at all that they're "underrated"; they're extremely well-known and considered influential by many artists... not as well known as the offshoot bands like Joan of Arc (which has some interesting stuff) and the Owls (who are kinda boring)... but definitely more well known than Make Believe (who has some of the craziest guitar lines I've ever heard!).

I wouldn't say "underrated."
More like "unlistenable."

i wouldn't say they are extremely well known, but they're very influential especially in the mid to late 90's indie/emo scene.

yeah their best thing they released was their full length. i sold it for 80 bucks on ebay and one of their 7 inches i got 50 for it.

It's funny, I saw Make Believe at some festival last year, and I was thinking, 'Man, that guy sure does sound like the cap'n jazz/joan of arc/etc dude...' and some guy was yelling out "PLAY LITTLE LEAGUE!" And I was like "Uhhhhhhhh..." So, I went home and looked it up, and it was Mr. Kinsella. They broke up like a month afterwards too!

hahaha. my friend likes joan of arc and the owls. i saw the owls live once and this guy who looks like bill clinton randomly came in the club and got onstage and started singing with them. he was very drunk and his wife had to pull him away. i saw make believe with hella. they were pretty good. during hella's set tim kinsella stood in the front row and spazzed out during their whole set.

little league is my favorite cap n jazz song.

Little League
Oh Messy Life
Scary Kids Scaring Kids

those are the only three songs I know by them, but they're all fuckin awesome, ESPECIALLY Scary Kids Scaring Kids which is one of my favorites of all time. I'll need to get their album with the crazy name sometime.

Oh yeah, and I've heard their cover of "Take On Me"...and to their credit, they managed to make an already terrible song EVEN WORSE. Yeah.

everyneurotic, that's funny...

There's also a mallcore band who aren't COMPLETELY awful but sound like a blood brothers reject.. called bullet train to vegas.. (drive like jehu song for those not in the know)

I find it funny when these bands seem to have a decent taste in music..
