We are a band that is called “Math the Band”. We have been around for a long time. First, this was a band of 14-year-olds, now it is a band of twenty-somethings, who just happen to act like they are 14-year-olds.
We use vintage synthesizers, drum machines, hand made electronics, broken guitars, video-game systems and broken drums to make loud, fast, weird music.
We have played somewhere in the neighborhood of 850 shows throughout North America and the United Kingdom. We have toured with Andrew W.K, Wheatus, Peelander-Z, What Cheer? Brigade, Harry and the Potters, MC Lars, MC Frontalot and MC Chris. We have played shows with Japanther, Matt and Kim, Dan Deacon, and Afrika Bambaataa (to name a few)
Some people say our band is terrible; they are not wrong. Some people say we are the best band ever; they are correct. Some people say we are too loud; they are stupid. Some people say we play to slowly; we are working on it! Give us a break!!!!
What kind of gear do you use?
In the studio, we use, and have used a Yamaha CS-15, Arp Axxe, Sequential circuits six track, Moog Mg-1, Memory Moog, Korg Ms2000, Roland R8, Roland R5, Alesis HR-16, multiple midines, a variety of gameboy carts, home made Midibox SID, Shruthi, Proteus 2 and a Paia Fatman. This is all controlled with midi through a 2002 PC running Fruity Loops 3 on Windows XP.
