ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Men Who Control the Weather are a subversive paramilitary dance-rock band. From their headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota they take to the highways of America, seeking to undermine \'the man\' and bring truth to the good citizens of our country. Conspiracies, alien abduction, zombies, the end of the world - if it\'s weird they\'ll expose it, and they\'ll do it with style. With roots in punk, experimental and good old fashioned rock and roll music, The Men Who Control the Weather produce a sound like no other. Their tongue-in-cheek, grandiose, visions of impending doom are contrasted by their upbeat, danceable rhythms and their wild attitude. Zany synthesizers conspire with hard rock guitar to create the impression that TMWCTW are creating the soundtrack to a sci-fi flick from the 1950\'s. The Men Who Control the Weather\'s lineup that you see before you today has been carefully crafted to create an elite mix of musical talent and military skill. These men have become the A-Team of rock music.

The Men Who Control the Weather continually tour the country, and in their travels they have visited many cities, and have told the truth to their citizens.

Notable co-conspirators: Dropping Daylight, Tub Ring, The Plastic Constellations, Dog Fashion Disco, Black Flood Diesel, Screaming Mechanical Brain, Retard-O-Bot, Awesome Car Funmaker, The Show is the Rainbow, Dr. Manhattan, The Moment, and Foxy Shazam.

If you\'re looking for an album to top off that \"Songs To Dance To As The World Crumbles\" playlist you started on your iPod a while ago, this is it. Self-described as \"a subversive paramilitary dance-rock band,\" this Minnesota five-piece is fun and fury, with a sound that makes you wonder if their pre-recording ritual doesn\'t involve huddling in a bunker for a few weeks, and eating freeze-dried coffee while watching an old VHS copy of \"1984.\" Something\'s going to happen, everything is coming to head, but before it does, these chaps would like to have some fun with you. Let them. These songs are, more than anything, just good ol\' rock \'n\' roll that\'s been jacked up and spun around a few times. So, the jams are sufficiently kicked out, but so are some unexpected harmonies and keyboard/piano parts that are skillfully adjusted tonally to fit the feel and message of each track. Like any good fast-paced rock band, they get in and get out, with most of the songs hovering around the three minute mark. (The exception is \"Urban Hunting Ground,\" which grooves and screeches for an even five, and it doesn\'t drag.) They\'ve harnessed the chaos, and they\'re ready to show it to you. Take a look, while there\'s still time.
