The cliché about Modern Man is Ultra Quick is that he is a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. But such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that MMiUQ demonstrates remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends - and avoiding them. Bands usually seek to do one of two things: define their genre, or defy their genre. After spending any amount of time assaulting your senses with MMiUQ - it will be clear which camp he falls into. Reviewed by M. Blaine 2007 - WebZine


"Up to his creative forays again. The latest releases from Andrew Johnson showcase his disdain for modern society's willingness to accept whatever is spoon fed to them; whether it be today's most downloaded "EMO" track or the latest copy of People Magazine, featuring a shallow story of some young celeb's battle with anorexia. The music walks alongside the writer's principle motivation in it's creation. Aptly put- "MMiUQ demonstrates remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends - and avoiding them". After just a few listens, you'll most likely come to the same conclusions as I about it's irreverence towards pop culture's acceptance of mainstream media. Refreshing yet uncomfortable.... exactly as it was meant to be. Justin Wright (Intangible) 2007 for MySpace.com

"Good luck on your quest for world domination, from the ashes a new phoenix of unquestionable depravity in good taste is born!" Shiptu Shaboo/Austrailia 1/2007

"Cool powerful sound!" Luciano De Franco/Italy 1/2007 - MMiUQ

Bio

Andy Johnson (founder and songwriter - MMiUQ) started listening to black metal when he was 12, shortly after being introduced to the devil by Rush, AC/DC and Black Sabbath. By age 14 he'd extended his listening tastes to punk rock, skate rock and Bela Bartok (a modern classical composer).
His formative 16-21 years, definitely, found Johnson in 'art rock/math rock dork land' in addition to lending his ears to things like the chanting of Gyuto Monks, the Bulgarian Women's Choir, and the instruments of Harry Partch and Diamanda Galas.
He's played the bass guitar since he was 11, played in several bands/types of bands, toured the US and Europe and in 1997 discovered his need to produce electronic music - which he's been doing, releasing records for several years in addition to the occasional film score.
Thank goodness Johnson's no longer playing the desk and pen holder on a daily basis, (you never heard anything so god damn annoying). Somewhere in the midst of his musical education he graduated with honors from Berklee, had an epiphany that Roy Orbison was enlightened and Hank Williams Sr. wrote every song that ever needs to be written about love, loss and drinking.

Modern Man is Ultra Quick calls on Johnson's fresh musical and lyrical ideas changing the way our world's auditory landscape is heard.
