    One of my all-time-favorite bands, if any of you're fans, recommend something similar, please; I just cant get enough Marcy, but there is only so much!

    I think its all the Alice In Wonderland/opium/heroin/tragic optimism that I love.

    Saw them at the Opera House in Toronto when Shapeshifter came out. I rather enjoyed myself that night. So hands up being a fan. There are clips of Jim Campilongo playing at the Living Room and Dan Riser is playing with him (how cool is that).

    They are on nearly every "1 Hit Wonder" countdown but they have a
    lot of good songs.

    I have honestly never heard another song of theirs other than sex and candy. I gues I should give them a shot.

    As Dusty said earlier, they have done so much more. That song is good, maybe just OK, their other stuff is much better -- sex and candy was a bit off the mark from their normal stuff. The three links I posted above are some of my favorites, check em out!

    From the same album, check out St. Joe On The Schoolbus and Poppies.





    If you liked those, Deadly Handsome Man is cool too:


    I saw them on the first version of the Summerland tour from the 4th row. John was not looking that good and had an asthma attack on stage, heat-related, I think, but the performance was rock solid.

    Very cool band.

    Here's some live MP from SXSW 2011
