Whatís so bad about Nebraska? Okay its capital Lincoln got nothing to offer but its meaningful name. But the stateís biggest city is Omaha. Right, the Omaha with all this Saddle Creek and Bright Eyes and so on stuff. Could this bandís name be a hidden diss on the Conor Oberst mischpoke?
Well, I guess this is once again a little over-interpreted. The same thing happened to me when I fuck up my English exam in the Abitur where I got a short story totally wrong and ended up with my worst English test everÖ Ah yeah, the band. Okay, No Nebraska hail from Berlin and have a unique sound because the trio features apart from guitar, drums and some vocals no bass or keyboard but a bass clarinet. They play some sort of dodgy, groovy rock derivate somewhere between D.C. and New York. There is a certain postpunk and no wave charm about it. Interesting and independent.
The pretty artwork is great as well. The idea with the little booklet full of recipes is killer even if some of them arenít vegan. But do they name a song after Barack Obama? Heís from Illinois and not from Nebraska. Nebraskaís current senators are Chuck Hagel and Ben Nelson. But to be honest they are pretty boring farts and Obama is so pop just like Zidane who got his own song as well including samples from the Materazzi situation.
