MATH THE BAND = the sound in Honey Boo Boo's Brain (?)

If the synapses firing in Honey Boo Boo's brain after gorging on copious amounts of Go Go juice made music it would sound like Math The Band. The strain of synth punk they pump out is so mind numbingly frenetic they could very well be called Meth The Band. But drug jokes aside, their music does kind of run around you like a spastic out of control cousin. They revel in vintage synths, hand made electronics, broken guitars and drums, and video game systems as musical instruments. Their own description for their sound is apt: 8 bit punk or Nintendo Rock. All this craziness is the brain child of Kevin Steinhauser who started Math in 2003. Justine Mainville joined in 2007. Check out some of their live performances and you will see how infectious their music can be or maybe contagious is more like it. Coming to a venue near YOU- check out the dates nabbed from their site. (Why on earth do I have the urge to turn down the sound during The Walking Dead and play Math The Band really loud????)
