I saw Caribou back in 2003 when they were known as "Manitoba". They opened up for Broadcast. I had never heard of them before, but they fucking blew me away. It featured two drummers & lead guitar/vocalist. The drummers were both dressed like eagles, so when they were frantically battling it was insane to watch their wings flapping about. The lead singer had a pig mask on, but that is all I can remember of his costume. It was easily one of the most rad live performances I've ever seen though.
I haven't heard the new album in it's entirety, but what I have I dig a lot. I'm going to try and pick up the new album this week if I can get my sick ass out of bed.
Has their live show changed considerably? I saw some footage from one of their shows and though it seemed great, it certainly didn't seem to be as manic as their 2003 show.
hmm, not one negative responce about these guys. I heard lots of good reviews about this band, so i grabbed their latest release, Andorra, and was not pleased, any other releases i should check out before i totally dismiss them?

I love the two drummer thing. And how they dont do it lame by always playing the same parts but by having the two drummers actually play different beats. The first time I saw them was amazing, the second time, which was only about a month ago... wasnt as intense but still was really good. I would love to see them at coachella.
Also, I'm sure everyone knows this but Caribou/Manitoba is only one guy... those are just his lackies for the live show.
