Straddling the fine line between technical precision and reckless abandon, social commentary and smartass revelry, Replicator endeavour to bring something unique and worthwhile to the overall culture of this independent music thing while somehow managing to overcome the signal to noise ratio of vapid defanged post punk disco retreads and the latest astroturf “garage band” fad with the marketing dollars of the cool hunting multinational corporations.
Alive and well for going on 7 years now, Replicator have just recorded a third new full length release in summer 2006, with Mr. Vern Rumsey (Blonde Redhead, KARP), of the band Unwound. The new record should be out in early 2007. Their last full length album “You Are Under Surveillance”, in 2004 was on Substandard Records. Recorded at Mr. Toad’s by bassist/keyboardist/recording engineer Ben Adrian, Surveillancefollowed up the “lost” DBBLLVVZZNN split release with the band Lower Forty-Eight , as well as the well received “” ep in 2001, and 2000’s “Winterval”, engineered by Mr. Bob S. Weston IV.
Replicator has been steadily playing successful shows in and around the bay area, west coast and US since late 1999. They have worked towards creating a solid fan base, in a supportive community of fantastic ‘outsider’ bands, in the creatively fertile bay area, based on a combination of great songs and exciting live performance.
In other words, substance over style, every time
Replicator has played throughout the US with bands like Trans Am, Rye Coalition, Blood Brothers, Oxes, BABYLAND, Hella, Vaz, Stinking Lizaveta and many, many more, and plan to continue this trend in the US and abroad in the future.
