The best kept secret in music



The Reviews section of We Are Scientists' web page features not reviews of the band, but reviews by the band, of things like "crack cocaine," "L.A. Weather," and "Bugles." It's a fitting insight into the kind of clever, skewed sense of humor that informs the Brooklyn group's insanely catchy pop songs.

Feeling a bit camera shy


In the summer of 2001, Michael Tapper, Keith Murray and Chris Cain responded to an offer from the band We Are Scientists to relocate the three young men, all expenses paid, from Los Angles to New York City. Brokering the deal from both sides, they quickly accepted and hopped the next steam train out of town. We Are Scientists became the Superman to Tapper, Murray and Cain's unusually pathetic Clark Kent. By day, they fumbled pickup lines, choked on cigarettes, and wore those fucking P.E. coach-style shorts. By night, they got in front of people, generated big sounds, thrashed back and forth, fell down. W.A.S. played every bill they could talk their way onto, constantly developing their sound, flinging self-recorded discs into the hands of a slowly growing crowd, spreading like some happy disease the scientist sound: tense, catchy pop songs, the guitar and bass gyrating independently over unexpected beats. Now is the time to hit play on the accompanying audio files. If there are no files because you have received this via some sort of viral email campaign of unknown provenance, then W.A.S. sympathizes with you.
