Though the band Germans is from Oregon they sound a lot like the New Wave bands coming out of England and other parts of Europe during the 1980s. To say that they are bizarre or quirky would be an understatement. I don't get the feeling, however, that they are trying to be different; they just are. They are probably a band that has been inspired by a group like The Flaming Lips, by the sounds of them. I don't know what their stage shows are like, so I don't know how far the influence goes. They are fairly young so things can change, but it is fun to discover a band at their beginnings and then watch them grow. With this band it seems as if it will be an interesting voyage!
