Lungfish

One of my all time favorite bands that are still around... A few of their tracks popped up right in a row while my iTunes was running random selection.

Here is a description stolen from Wikipedia:

Lungfish
Origin Baltimore, Maryland
Country United States
Years active 1988 – Present
Labels Dischord, Simple Machines
Members Daniel Higgs, Asa Osborne, Mitchell Feldstein, Sean Meadows

Now operating in its 17th year, Lungfish is a punk band based in Baltimore, Maryland. All of their music has been released by the Washington, D.C. punk label Dischord except for their first LP, Necklace of Heads which was released by Simple Machines (it was later added to the CD release of Talking Songs for Walking by Dischord). While seemingly mundane on the surface, Lungfish remains one of the most intense, strange, and dedicated bands in the music world, constantly repeating similar ideas over and over.

Their line-up as of 2005 consists of Daniel Higgs (vocals), Asa Osborne (guitar), Sean Meadows (bass), and Mitchell Feldstein (drums). Previous bass players are John Chriest and Nathan Bell.

Their albums feature compelling guitar-based repetitions with Daniel Higgs' prophetic and cryptic lyrics. Among their most prominent early works are the albums Talking Songs for Walking and Rainbows from Atoms, which feature the band's original bassist. More recent works include The Unanimous Hour, Love is Love and Feral Hymns.
