Buffalo, NY’s lab rat Science Man is back with a new LP Science Man II and this time with Big Neck Records fanning the flames. SM II cranks the gas and doubles the dose on the maniac fronted, drum-machine driven, relentless guitar attack that was his 2019 self-titled debut on Swimming Faith Records. Cannibalizing one limb of rock and roll to augment the nasty, bashing ability of it’s other more punk appendages. Think if Hot Snakes started playing only basement gigs with weirdo hardcore bands after listening to Big Black and Judas Priest in the van all day. Science Man II takes shape while flowing seemlessly though a unique blend of punk/hardcore/garage/rock and roll in just under 20 mins.
Early Praise For Science Man:
“Imagine if you will, a musical stew of ’90s noise rock, early hardcore, and whatever the fuck you call what Scratch Acid did, and you would be getting close to what Science Man does.” – No Echo
“…a dose of gnarled, snarling garage punk.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“Lo-fi, but high intensity all the way though, with gritty rock ‘n’ roll wrestling with hardcore punk fury, Science Man II is a wild assault on the ears.” – Big Takeover
“Like Tom Waits highjacking Sputnik with the aid of Man or Astroman, Buffalo-based rocker Science Man is outlandish in all of the best ways possible.” – New Noise Magazine
