Pat Finnerty and Mike Quinn are cousins who have been playing music together since they were kids. Scranton, Pennsylvania is home to their four-piece indie rock band, Okay Paddy. In most reviews I read they are compared to Weezer and Pavement, but I'll go with Ramones and a touch of Replacements in the rich guitar sound. Another shared sentiment I found in the reviews is that this band is highly underrated. I'll have to agree.
Okay Paddy is signed to Prison Jazz Records who released their early 2006 LP The Cactus Has a Point. The songs were recorded in the band's garage/studio that they call Old Brown Shoe. There are a few additional MP3s to download on the Okay Paddy website and, as in most cases, they have a MySpace page to check out.
