Martini Ranch was a New Wave band conceived in 1982 by Andrew Todd Rosenthal. The band was composed of Rosenthal (vocals and guitar) and actor Bill Paxton (vocals and samples), and featured a similar sound to late 1980s Devo. The Martini Ranch track "How Can the Labouring Man Find Time for Self-Culture?" featured three members of Devo.
In 1989, Martini Ranch was featured in the end credits of Bill Paxton's 1990 cult movie Brain Dead.
Rosenthal later formed a new band called Swifty's Bazaar.
