A big Howdilly Doodilly to the band inspired by Simpsons
CALLING all Simpsons and metal music fans – a Ned Flanders-themed band are coming to Nuneaton.
Okilly Dokilly, who describe themselves as the ‘‘only Nedal band in the world’’ will be performing at Queen’s Hall on October 13.
The band are formed of four members – all of whom dress just like the famous Ned Flanders character in The Simpsons.
As well as wearing green jumpers over pink shirts, the majority of lyrics in Okilly Dokilly songs are direct Ned quotes from the legendary TV show.
The act, who hail from Arizona, formed in 2015, and quickly became a viral phenomenon after releasing a four-song demo and images of the band.
The band comprises Head Ned, Dread Ned, Shred Ned and Zed Ned.
The act will likely perform songs from their debut album Howdilly Doodilly, a record described as “filled with Flanderisms, rushing guitars and more than enough left-handed puns”.
It was released in 2016 and was followed by a US tour, where they played nearly 100 shows.
The band’s shows are described as ‘‘high energy affairs that weave together comedy and brutality’.’
‘‘Guttural screams and pounding drums provide a soundtrack for the pummeling of an inflatable donut as green sweaters and round glasses blur across the stage”.
Tickets cost £17.60.
