I've heard of them, don't think i've ever heard their music - what are they like?

I like them. Strange and good stuff.

Originally from Vancouver , Canada , if I am remember well!

Pop stuff from the early to mid-80's, a bit new-wavish , had lots of coverage from MTV canadian equivalent MuchMusic.

Never my cup of tea!

Think of the Oompa Loompa songs from the recent Charlie and the Chocolate factory and you get the gist of what Oingo Boingo is.

Oingo Boingo is from Southern California, LA Area.  There front man was Danny Elfman, now Movie composer.  It's why the Oompa Loompa Songs sound so Oingo like.  Because Elfman and Oingo are one and the same.  In fact, the Veruca Salt song is Elfman's voice singing the vocals.  The best way to get introduced to Oingo is to check out the Farewell concert either on DVD or CD.  I think you can rent it on Netflix.  Almost everyone that has never heard of Oingo before I play them this show becomes a fan.

Check it out.
