That's how I pronounce it.

All the .22 albums are on iTunes now so there's always that. My favourite is The Worker, then The Patriots, then Watertown.

This was not what I meant at all. I just found it surprising that a band that there's been like, three whole threads about on this forum would be so obscure, it just seems like a curious thing! Like it is a particular obsession of dudes here and on Electrical Audio maybe?

I actually download all the albums I have on vinyl and play them silently on my computer whilst I listen to vinyl so my last.fm is accurate.

Two in fact.

Regardless, they are a great band. I can't think of many bands who have three records I love and can enjoy all the way through. Probably once a week I will listen to the whole discography and I'm still not sick of it.

Admittedly they don't wear face-paint or beat conga drums. They don't have violas and horn sections. They don't dress in vintage clothing or spandex leotards. I doubt anybody at Pitchfork knows who they are and I shouldn't think they have been asked to do commercials for American Apparel. They're just three working dudes who play really good rock music as a hobby. Call me crazy but I kind of like that.

New band by the singer/guitarist of the rock band .22 - Light Coma.

You can buy their first record here for $5 or like 3 if you're in the UK. That's insane value!

You can watch the rock band .22 playing a short set at the PRF BBQ a couple of weeks ago here. It's in full 1080p and the audio is a pristine sound-board recording. Check it out.

There is also a review of the Light Coma album over on Pocket Jury here.

Thanks.

You can download every release by the rock band .22 for free today. Please grab them whilst you can. Three albums and an EP. All are great, the quality is maintained throughout. Recommended if you like Bottomless Pit, Vitreous Humor, Karate, Silkworm, Light Coma, Shellac etc.

You can find their Bandcamp here.

Thanks.
