Description

Detroit's freak-wave outfit Child Bite meet up with noise-pop-rockers Stationary Odyssey for this lesson in Phys Ed. The Split EP aptly titled Physical Education contains two songs from each of the aforementioned bands in a bad ass circular silver tin packaging, limited to just 400 hand-numbered copies. The music ranges from post-rocky Slint-ish ballads, to horn section no-wave freak outs. An unlikely combination? Most definitely. Child Bite's music combines punk vigor with avant-garde ideals;in an end product which Paper Thin Walls describes as "Devo or Talking Heads going no wave." Their Joyful Noise debut infuses unconventional sounds with palatable arrangements that end up sounding like an indie-hipster-dance-group with something fundamentally and terribly wrong. 

Stationary Odyssey have achieved critical acclaim for their unique and unpredictable blend of noise-rock. Aggressive guitars, atmospheric sounds, electro beats, noise, and pop melodies all find their way into this music. However, unlike their previous efforts, Physical Education actually contains vocals and lyrics, channeling a Faith No More/ Ween component. The revolving lineup now includes vocalist Mike Farmer, aka Kentucky Prophet, fresh off his national tour with Frank Black. You may also remember him as the "Music Geek" from Comedy Central's Beat the Geeks.
