seriously man have you ever read CZ before? adding "mo" at the end of everything is kinda a given.
Well I kinda meant it in a "What? What bands make this?" way. I'd kinda taken it to be a "joke" genre-name which somebody might use when they can't really describe a band to somebody.

It's only a smallish sound, but it seems there are/have been quite a few bands reacting the metal/fuzzy/wall of noise sound of Screamo of the mid 2000s and finding a new janglier/punkier kinda thing..
Sinaloa have a kinda Gang of Four et al slow hard jerky thing going on
Reds and Tubers have a Mission of Burma/Wire esque big wierd chord and stop starty mid paced punk thing going on
and yeah Calvary were a bit earlier than most of the bands but they had a real early 80s UK influence..
and yeah I guess we have been messing about with the kinda unhinged funk thing.. or as Andy M put it "art funk inbetween the emo songs"
not really a genre or a scene at all, but it's a nice little thing people seem to be picking up as a slightly new take on the 'mo
