"Coming straight outta the superhot San Francisco underground, Numbers debut record gets hipsters smiling (smirking?) and asses shaking. This trio has been whipping live audiences into a frenzy since the summer of 2000. Lead singer and drummer Indra Dunis lays down disco-punk beats a la Gang Of Four or Devo that jack into your dance cortex. Dave Broekema whacks away at his Gibson SG making jagged No Wave skree along the lines of the Contortions. Eric Landmark's Moog and his homemade 'Buzzerk' synth machine pump out robotic bass and bleeps that would make both Kraftwerk and Adult proud. Lyrics about work, the proliferation of technology, consumerism, and elitist attitudes all go hand-in-hand with Numbers' egalitarian vision -- undoing late-capitalist subroutine with some much-needed rumpus."
