Spider - If I Were You

Man, because of the name of this band, I really can't stop thinking about the character you can play as in the Sega Megadrive game Micro Machines 2 who has a leather jacket and stubble and is called Spider. The music of this band, though, is a pretty 'rad' pastiche of Freaks and Geeks, B52s, and twinkies and Count Chocula all that stuff and their kistched out organ drones supplements their deadpan punk while they keep absolutely straight faces in their stiff-necked sly posturing, smirking melodies and feigning paranoia.
