A highly-acclaimed 21st-century bar-rock band, known for the complex and intertextual lyrical mythology woven throughout their albums, following the adventures of an (occasionally) apostate streetrat, a quasi-Rastafari delinquent, an occasionally precognitive pyschic and a ne'er-do-well pimp, through the eyes of various narrators, mostly extreme hedonists, and built over old-school epic riffs.

* JigsawPuzzlePlot: The MythArc. ''Almost Killed Me'' appears to be the beginning/scene-setting, and ''Separation Sunday'' outlines the larger MythArc all the way to "How A Resurrection Really Feels", which is obviously the GrandFinale (being about Holly's return and spiritual rebirth). But songs from all the later albums seem to fit back into that larger arc, showing various episodes along the way.
