Video Premiere: Math The Band – new video from the band who refer to themselves as “an electro-punk spazz duo.”

Earlier this year Math the Band dropped a cracking album, Stupid and Weird, which we gave a well deserved 8 / 10. They’ve just released a video for the title track off that album which we’re stoked to be able to premiere for you today –  check it out, in all it’s bonkers wonderfulness, below.

Here’s this from our review of the album, written by Adrian Bloxham

“It’s like all your favourite punk bands have been thrown into a room and made to fight it out with xylophones and sega machines, it’s like Hawkwind and Motorhead have been made to wear dayglo and tutus.”

Self dubbed “electro-punk spazz duo” Math The Band are from Providence, R.I. They use a combination of analog synthesizers, vintage drum machines, old video game systems and “shitty” guitars to make the fastest, loudest, weirdest music they can. And they do it very well. You’d be pretty hard pushed to find any other band like Math The Band which, frankly, is one of the reasons we love them so much. Their music is also ridiculously catchy and decidedly “party” – two more reasons why we love them. They’ve been around for over ten years now and in that time they’ve toured with bands like Andrew W.K (like I said, they’re a “party” band), Japanther and Wheatus amongst others.

The video for “Stupid and Weird” has been made by CrashBoomBang Productions. It sums the band up perfectly, being about as bonkers as their music.

You can pick the album up on vinyl at anchorbrain.com. If digital’s more your thing head over to maththeband.com.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.

  1. Have never liked the use of the word ‘spazz’ in this or any other context really. Its an insult thats dated and i suppose is used to appear retro, ironic and clever. Its not. I don’t like the PC-language police either and use pretty crass terms myself like ‘mental’ when trying to describe free, unihibited and off-the-wall music/artistes. But I do wish the use of ‘spazz’ would die out.
