In a Swiss Chalet in Waterloo, bored teenage servers are abusing helium balloons so they can talk funny.

Info page: the late b.p. helium, The Boat â€” 28 June 2006, which also includes a link to FLACs.
the late bp helium played The Boat last night, and as a wise man once said, the crowd roared like a lion. I love that psych guitar sound that he has, and the band is really tight together. I got a chance to chat with Bryan — whom I know from fegmaniax — and he’s a fine bloke. He has mad guitar skills, to boot; reminds me of The Soft Boys, with serious effects pedals.
Jack & Ginger were excellent too, as were Henri FabergÃ© & The Adorables.
