Worm Quartet

Worm Quartet is a Rochester, NY-based band that forcibly staples punk and electronica together with a handful of other stupid influences and throws them into a blender with hysterically twisted lyrics. They have been featured repeatedly on the Dr. Demento show, with many Funny Top Five appearances, and had the most requested song of the year in both 2004 ("Great Idea For A Song") and 2005 ("Inner Voice" with Sudden Death.) The sole member of Worm Quartet is a 6'4" goofy-looking long-haired maniac who insists on being called "Shoebox" and who poses by day as a mild-mannered software engineer. Shoebox has also appeared on MC Lars' album "This Gigantic Robot Kills" as well as albums by fellow comedy musicians Devo Spice, the great Luke Ski, and others. He was also featured on VH-1's "Totally Obsessed" several years ago showcasing his love of Pac-Man, which, due to the show being hosted by Fred Willard, puts him three degrees from Kevin Bacon.
