They're distinctly different. :) Yo La Tengo is shouted out in
Mexican I believe, usually in Baseball for, "I have the ball". They are
one of the most dynamic and longest-surviving indie bands from the 80s
The Incredible String Band (IBS to those in the know. :P) are a
folk-psychedelic band, and often quoted as pioneering psychedelic music
with folk. Proponents of the band, Mike Heron and Robin Williamson
have done a tremendous job over the years. :)
