Mindless Self Indulgence

Mindless Self Indulgence is a NYC based co-ed punk band whose name manifests itself during their incendiary live shows. MSI's music isahybrid of Atari driven electronics with a venomous splash of A.D.D Punk Rock. They are the breath of fresh air that is sure to offend yourp.c.restrained, category demanding, humorless peers.

Mindless Self Indulgence is a NYC based co-ed punk band whose name manifests itself during their incendiary live shows. MSI's music isahybrid of Atari driven electronics with a venomous splash of A.D.D Punk Rock. They are the breath of fresh air that is sure to offend yourp.c.restrained, category demanding, humorless peers.

Electro-trash-inustry-punk-reggae-techno-metal is the only way i can think to describe these guys/gals. They're live perfomancesarephenomenal and always entertaining as hell, with singer/programmer/hellraiser jimmy urine spattering off hilarious and memorablelinessuch as "Who you callin a faggot? Yo, while you out gay bashin i'll be at your house fuckin your girlfriend, IN THE ASS!!" Whetherit'sclimbing up balconies in the hammerstein ballroom in NYC to kiss a random girl for a dollar or pulling out his "member" with a littledittyabout its size, he always "brings the pain" in all his performances.

Their album complexity varies from the simple loops of "bitches" to the mind blowing chaos of tracks like "clarissa". Jimmy'selectronicprogramming and indescribable vocals combined with guitarist Steve, Righ?'s incendiary riffs, Lyn Z's solid basslines and Kitty'stechnostyle drumming mesh together to form a totally unique and intriguing sound. Covers including a complete overhall of [wu-tang clan]'s"Bringthe Pain" (off their debut lp "Tight") and [Rush]'s "Tom Sawyer" (from their latest effort "You'll Rebel to Anything") are a primeexample ofthis band's multiple influences and styles.

Their most highly reguarded and seemingly most popular album "Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Attractive" sports tracksabouteverything from the band's opinion on hidden messages in songs to the joy's of mastubation to Jimmy's love for seven-eleven girls andtheirability to stay up all night, as well as give him discounts. In the spirit of making a new and unique sound, they tear down the lifestyleandlegendary status of [Led Zeppelin]'s Jimmy Page in their song titled (you guessed it) "I Hate Jimmy Page," which is so grippingandcompelling that even this Zeppelin fanatic can't resist it's humor combined with it's infectious lyric pattern.

Only in New York, i guess. « hide
