The best kept secret in music


"Jim Emerson, editor of RogerEbert.com"

The band is lo-fi is sci-fi, the song is "The Script You Wrote is Terrible" (great line: "The script you wrote is terrible/But I like you anyway"), and the video is clever and funny and magnificently deadpan (as is the one for "March to the Sky"). It would make a good Opening Shot contribution. After all, it's just one shot. I love the way it starts, with a white screen -- and just a little piece of black (the edge of the white background) in the upper left corner. Perfect.

lo-fi is sci fi (aka Chris Zabriskie) has just launched the website for his band/solo project. His first record is called The Black Hole, after the Disney movie of the same name.

Do not underestimate Chris or this album. Go check him out on MySpace, download the album from his web page, watch for upcoming shows - seriously. If Chris had a street team, I would be Vice President. Chris has a lot of other video stuff to show off, as he’s worked on some music videos for the likes of John Vanderslice (really) and a number of short films. - liberatr.net

Feeling a bit camera shy


We're lo-fi is sci-fi. We are actually independent. We don't need a label to do what we're already doing for us and take all the money in return.

We believe in punk rock, but we don't believe you have to be an asshole to be punk rock.

Our shows are usually loud and always unpredictable, but we put 100% into it at all times. We have an extremely minimalist setup, so we are good at get-in-and-get-out sets and setting up in front of other people's equipment. We'll play anywhere.

Our favorite bands include Guided by Voices, The Thermals, Kid Dakota, Modern Lovers, Kind of Like Spitting, The Who and The Monkees. Especially The Monkees.

We've played all over the place, at most of the venues in Orlando, and we've played shows all the way out in Salt Lake City and Portland. We don't get the chance to tour very often, though.

Chris is a veteran of numerous noise bands, including Struggleburger (famous for releasing 18 albums in one year). He's made music all over the country, from Olympia, Washington to Portland, Oregon and finally Orlando. He also ran Celestial Bison Records for 5 years and has produced a couple dozen albums by all sorts of crazy bands.

Marc has been performing as Marc with a "C" since 2000, playing countless live shows in Central Florida and releasing five full-length albums. He's well known for his energetic and sometimes belligerent stage persona, and had hits on statewide mainstream and college radio with "Why Don't Girls Like Me," "Life's So Hard," and "Nerdy Girls."

That's pretty much it. Let us know if you need anything.
