From the wacky world of novelty acts comes US metal outfit Okilly Dokilly, a tribute to Homer Simpson’s long-suffering neighbour Ned Flanders.

The Arizona five piece – Head Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned, Stead Ned and Bled Ned – bill themselves as the world’s only ‘Nedal’ band and insist most of their lyrics are taken directly from Flanders’ dialogue on The Simpsons.

Okilly Dokilly are about to release their debut album (sadly digital-only at this stage), the splendidly named Howdilly Doodilly; check out the video for the track White Wine Spritzer.
