4.0 out of 5 stars When Life Hands You Lemons, You Post Them Online December 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
...underground and independent music is becoming much more accessible, and opening thousands and millions of new ears to sounds they might have missed. One of these gems is the band Piebald. Piebald's most recent full-length release is the album you're reading the review of, "If It Weren't For Venetian Blinds, It'd Be Curtains For Us All". The title pretty much sums up the band; clever, funny, and just a little dark. With a lyrical style similar to the musings of They Might Be Giants and low-fi guitars dodging in and out of break-heavy drums, they quite simply tear it up. Live they will make you a believer. This album is a pretty good way to get into this now-defunct band. Songs like "If Marcus Garvey Dies, then Marcus Garvey Lives" and "We Believe in Karma" they'll get yourself singing along. Music is going to change very much in the future, what with the advent of new technology for recording and storage, and the fantastic "Venetian Blinds" album will sit in the archive, knowing its greatness, and knowing it may have changed the face of music. But who am I to say? Piebald and I are mustard and mayonnaise...we'll ketchup with you later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps coming back October 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Piebald on a rollerblading video called apprehensions- during Mike Elias's section. The song was 'grace kelly w/wings' and I immediately had to have the cd with that song. So I had my local cd store order for me: 'Barely Legal/All Ages' and as you may or may not know, this only has the live version of 'Grace Kelly' which in my opinion was not nearly as good as the studio version. Well, having just dropped $20 on an album I decided I would check out what else they had to offer, and boy ws I amazed!!! The first disc 'Barely Legal' is freakin' awesome!

Anyway I liked them so much that I decided I would venture out and purchase some more of their work. The first cd I stumbled across was 'Venetian Blinds' which just so happened to have the studio version of 'Grace Kelly' on it. I was so excited to find that one song that I ended up neglecting the rest of the album until I had had enough of 'Grace Kelly.'

Well, after this I put it back on my shelf never bothering to listen to any other songs. Then out of nowhere- just the other day one of my new friends asked if I liked Piebald to which I replied 'oh yeah'. He played a few song he had just recorded off the internet that I had never heard before. This had me wondering if any of those songs came from 'Venetian Blinds' so I went home that night and popped in the cd. This cd rocks! None of the songs Jodi played were on this album but dissappointed I was not. I couldn't believe that I never bothered to listen to the rest of the album. I hate that amazon doesnt give a track listing because I would recommend a few songs to listen to, but some good numbers are 1,6,10,11,12,13. Those are just a few I have been playing lately. Don't get me wrong, the whole album rocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars PIEBALD December 23, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Piebald started out as a couple of upper middle class kids from Andover, Mass. playing punk rock. Sounds ridiculous, but the joke's on us. Piebald write songs like no other band. With all of its weird time signatures, strange lyrics, and songs that segue into an endless number of different parts, 'If it weren't for Venetian Blinds' is one of the most musically interesting emo albums out there. I got to see them live in Andover last night, and they put on a great show. After apparently taking a break from playing, it's good to see them together again. They played a bunch of new songs, and I'll be psyched when the new album comes out in February. Until then, pick this up and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars If It Weren't for Venetian Blinds... We'd all the dead September 7, 2001
By Justin
Format:Audio CD
Incredible music. I think it's amazing how Piebald manages to be so unlike any other band yet still remain rocking out like no other. You'd think that by now all the Piebald wannabes would be out there trying to get a name by rocking Piebald-style but frankly no one out there has the ability these guys do. This for sure one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time. Buy it and you'll a new respect for Grace Kelly. Trust me.
