I was wondering if any of you like these guys.  From a personal stand-point I think they’re amazing.  For those of you unfamiliar with them, they do video game music covers from the good ole 8-bit nintendo days.  The beauty of it is that they take these seemingly simple songs and create masterpieces. If you get a chance to listen it’s a nostalgia trip.  Their cover of the Wizards & Warriors Intro kicks all possible ass as well as their cover of MegaMan 2’s Flashman theme.

Holy Crap, they are amazing, they just played at Nickel City a month or so ago, and opened for Pedro the Lion and John Vanderslice.  haha It was incredible!  It was fun just trying to remember the songs in video games.

Yeah, these guys are awesome! I read this article in the latest spin magazine about another NES cover band and they mentioned the advantage so I checked out their CD and it’s great! I was hugely into contra back in the day so it was cool hearing their versions of the contra songs.
