Replicator - "You Are Under Surveillance"
(Substandard 2003, SUB1027)
From Aural Innovations #29 (October 2004)
Replicator comes from Oakland, California. They are a high energy 3 piece that plays intense, smart, Nomeansno inspired bass driven rock with intelligent lyrics-no love songs! The band mix in the occasional sample or bizarre synthesizer sound when it feels appropriate! They are sometimes angry but when you read the liner notes you know they are quite cool. This sounds great when cranked up. This is the bands first full length CD. They had a previous EP called Winterval.
