Album Notes
Within a week after the release of 'Not Compatible With My System' (also availble HERE), The Kimberly Trip decided on something radical for today's musical climate: They started another disc! While on tour supporting their debut, they recorded on a portable digital studio and had the nucleus of the album finished while they were still achieving critical acclaim from the first album! These days, music fans usually have to wait in excess of 2 years to hear new material from a band, but The Kimberly Trip are at the forefront of a movement to get NEW product into fans hands every six to 10 months.

"This was a very non-traditional way of doing things, but it really paid off. We were able to debut new songs as they were written and by the end of the tour we had people requesting songs from this album before it was released! We write everyday, so I don't think it is unrealistic for our fans to have 3 albums from us by the end of 2004."

Another thing that helped boost the anticipation for 'Catastrophic Behavior' was the placement of the band's now tradmark song "Just What I Wanted" on the ABC Family Network.

"We had entered one of those international song contests because we thought it might be fun to see how we'd do. We NEVER imagined we'd win 'song of the year', but we did and the publicity it generated got us into the right people's hands."

Since then, 4 additional songs from this album have been signed to a publishing deal that focuses on TV placement. The band's modern, edgy sound makes them a great fit for television, and hopefully movie soundtracks in the near future.

"Hearing our stuff on TV is great, but we really just love that so many more people get to hear what we are all about. We just want to spread our message that it's okay to be a nerd, and that no self-esteem problem is too big to be solved with laughter. If someone is moved enough to listen to our music, or laugh at one of our shirts, then we feel we've really contributed to someone's happiness and that makes our day!"

***editor's note Their shirts ARE funny! They say things like "I Really Hate Your Band", "Turn The Suck Knob Down", and "I'm on the Short Bus to Geek School"...all phrases taken from their very imaginative and quirky lyrics.***

Just ordered the CD, haven't gotten it yet, but saw the band live and LOVED their music. I am still kicking myself for not purchasing CDs at the gig.

Duane Schaffer

No collection is complete without this!
A wonderful follow up to NCWMS, their first CD. I cannot get enough of this music and don't see this disc leaving my player anytime soon. Everytime I listen, I find more to love whether it is the fantastic production that just begs to be cranked or the hilarious well thought out lyrics. Every song is great and the whole disc can be played straight through which is very rare these days! Support this band!

Just Me Again

Really great music, totally addictive
Ok, now I got the CD and I am totally addicted and need to listen to it all the time. Great stuff. I find myself singing little bits of the songs and then I need to put the CD on AGAIN so I can sing along. Recommend the CD highly and will be buying their other CD shortly...even though there is no kitty on the cover.

I heard "Supergloo" on FlashbackAlternatives and began a frantic search for this CD. I listened to the other clips and ordered it immediately. This is a truly amazing & original piece of work. The songs, some poignant and heart-breaking like "Anything But You",others just plain funny like "Suck Knob", are all delightful and will stay in your brain for days after the first listening. The high energy retro sound & tight muscianship will have you dancing or at least head-bobbing to the max. Kimberlina's lovely expressive voice is a marvel. Get this CD now!

The world needs more Kimberly Trip in it!
In a world where bands with major recording label contracts are formulaic and predictable, and where every radio station in any market plays all the same stuff by those bands that all sound the same, we need more Kimberly Trip. Fresh, relevant song concepts, musicians with real musical talent, and strong, rich vocals that make any sound man worth his salt want to turn the mic's UP, not DOWN; visually entertaining and full of great energy live.

All the major record labels need to get their heads out of their behinds and pay attention to The Kimberly Trip: real rock and roll from real musicians who care about the music they're creating. The CD would be a bargain at twice the price.

Turn the SUCK knob down and get yours today!


It's too short!
This is one of the strongest pop-virus, demon-loop, and ear-worm inducing albums I've ever heard. After listening to the album only a few times, I find myself singing the songs or snippets of them several times a day. Some of the songs make me laugh and some make me start to tear up a little, but all-in-all, it's a very good set of songs.

My daughters and their friends thoroughly enjoy the album, too. It's an album with multi-generational appeal!

The only drawback to the album is that I'm always surprised when the last song comes around. It doesn't seem as though it should be over that soon. I don't want it to end!

These guys kick ASS!
If you've heard The Kimberly Trip before, you will love this album. If you haven't heard them before, this is an amazing introduction. It takes their music and turns it up to 11, with even more fantastic harmonies, rocking guitar, and incredible lyrics than the first album. For my money, this is the best pop band in California, hands down. I can't believe these guys aren't signed to a major label yet. Catastrophic Behavior manages to bring the excitement and energy of a live Kimberly Trip show while keeping the intricacies and layered sounds that a studio recording brings. And speaking of recordings, this is so clear and musically complex that I hear new things every time I listen, a truly professional sound that highlights the quality of the band. Don't miss this one!


Totally COOL!!!
I heard the band from "Flashback Alternatives." I dig the vocals on the CD, as well as the quirky lyrics.

Aaron Samuel Powell

The only album of its kind
When I saw the press for this record I got worried. I was a HUGE fan of their first album and everything I read said this was a giant departure in sound. It is, but it is even better! They have managed to take the strongest elements of their sound (Kimberlina's STUNNING voice, layered guitars and thunderous drums) and write 11 songs that push the envelope of modern-pop to where it has not gone before. Picture a more angelic version of Debbie Harry singing over The Edge and Alex Lifeson with an Incubus-esque rhythm section and you start to get a picture of how this album sounds. Nothing can prepare you for the depth of songwriting which reminds me at times of the Ramones and at times of Simon and Garfunkel. Don't get me wrong, they sound only like themselves with a flair for lyrics that are tragic and funny. This CD has not left my player since I bought it. I can't wait for the next album!
