i adore NoY.
Infomaniac really has grown on me over the years. always had some gems, but i really love the entire album, and the self-titled is a masterful success of lush pop/rock.
i remember seeing them open for some unknown band (yeah, THEY opened) years ago. me and 5 friends went. there were maybe 20 other people there. it was the second greatest show i have ever been to (Brand New - June 2006 takes the cake) and it was great singing along to every song. we were of course the only ones that knew the lyrics and Brandon stopped several times to joke with us about we "must have stolen all the records in town, that's why no one else here knows who we are" lol.
afterwards we had a few drinks and got autographs. excellent, excellent experience. i will always love NoY, would love to see them get big.
i think i saw them before they went on a tour with AFI? if so, i don't know how they didn't blow up after going on tour with AFI.
