I have found the greatest band of all time, bar-none, The Beards. This is a group of four Australians who take their facial hair vary seriously. All of their songs - and I mean all - are about beards and/or facial hair in some fashion. Whether it's about how awesome beards are, how they lost their beard (usually in some grave fight), how society doesn't understand beards (jobs and girlfriends who want you to shave it off), and how you need to grow a beard, it's all beards, beards, beards (which is also the title to their second album).
Flight of The Concords (even though they are Kiwis themselves), although there are more inclined to their music then FotC. Tenacious D references with rear their head as well, and although I see this more then FotC (aside from the accents), I also feel that a Stephen Lynch story-telling comparison must be mentioned. That's how I would (and have) describe these guys, an amalgamation of Flight of The Concords humor, Tenacious D rock, and Stephen Lynch stories. Do I have your attention now?
On the band's Facebook, they have this short, self-bio: "The concept of The Beards is simple: A folk-rock band that exclusively perform songs about just one subject: Beards." Bearded folk rock is their self-description, and if you think that mostly-acoustic music qualifies as 'folk' then it is accurate. But I view folk as something with old-time instruments and/or themes, or at least playing traditional pieces, The Beards do none of this. I would call their music alternative rock with a folksy spin (barely) with a splash of stoner thrown in for good measure. After my describing their comic side above, this sounds like an equally eclectic comparison of their talents, and it is as accurate as I can make it.
There isn't a whole lot on the web about The Beards, hell I only found them through one of my 'music acquiring' sites (Dimensions of Sonic Excellence), and this is something I think we need to fix. The group is funny, the music is pretty damn good, and their subject matter is legendary. If you want a good laugh, as well as some rockin' music, give The Beards a spin. One thing is that the group only wants one type of person to listen to their music; those who either have, or are planning on growing, a beard. If you don't qualify, then just move on until you do. And if you think you're free being female, guess again, The Beards just say you aren't trying hard enough, get on it!
