Their Dischord debut, 2002's Super/System, was a dadaist pastiche of quirky irreverence across 18 songs, more than half of them less then 90 seconds long. It was as unpredictable as a conversation with Crispin Glover and often as incomprehensible. But the mind isn't always the seat of power, and El Guapo's unintelligible unpredictability might be its greatest strength.
