    Doesn't that drummer get tired from moving his head around so much?

    Don't you think you would play something more inspiring after seeing "the God particle"?

    The part you linked to doesn't even sound that experimental, it just sounds like Eritrean music but not as good:

    Back in the day, this was our version of "noise"... I was influenced by this... Saw them live a couple of times when they were in my area.

    For the impatient... fast forward to 1:20 for the start of the show.

    I totally agree. If that's the direction modern music is headed, God help us all. I'd rather have teeth pulled than listen to that.

    The band at the collider, were quasi-experimental at best...!!!
    the Mahavishnu orchestra...were music geniuses in my eyes back then when I
    saw them (John McLaughlin,Jon Luc Ponty, Jan Hammer, Billy Cobham)..
    but, yea, like Zappa and Beefhart material, you might have to get in the groove on some songs..

    I'll give them 5 points for having an all-red guitar, even the fretboard!

    Cracks me up when people tear down a band that is doing any type of "out" improvisation. I watched the whole video and thought it was pretty cool. I like their "bad playing". This is only one aspect of the music they play (see video link at bottom).

    Deerhoof has been around over 20 years and have achieved a good bit of success on their own terms. Lots of forward thinking artists are fans: Bowie, Ric Ocasek, Tweedy/Cline from Wilco... They have toured with Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Beck, Sonic Youth... They are in fact very accomplished musicians despite whether you dig them or not.

    Below is a link to a live performance that I think is more representative of their sound. Not for everyone, ymmv, most here are going to hate it regardless etc... I just wanted to give some deeper perspective.

    The question is - how much more black could that be? And the answer is none. None more black.



    There's a fine line between clever and stupid.

    It took them 20 years to get that bad--quite an accomplishment. Generally a band gets better the more they play and collaborate together. I can only imagine how bad they will be in 20 more years.

    You may not like their music and it may be your opinion they are bad but many, many, folks would disagree with that assertion.

    The video link the OP provided was a one-off, freely improvised performance they were asked to do. Their normal repertoire consists primarily of pop/rock songs, albeit mixed with a healthy dose of jazz/prog influences.

    Did you watch the video I provided? Check out any of their other music? They are clearly great musicians who make a living with their music and are highly regarded by many well known and critically lauded artists. Maybe not your or others cup of tea but Deerhoof is a great band.

    Either way. I would have chosen something different in front of all those bosons or humans.
