Mutronium is one of those rare musical groups that are able to simultaneously draw the audience in while at the same time turning them on their ear. With their quirky instrumentation and angular vocal melodies they have a knack for catchy hooks and sonic subversion. Mutronium started out as a demo recording created by Joël Neumatic and Kurt Bordeaux, who were previously in the London UK band Melt. They relocated to New York City and while producing recordings for Hefner and Ambulance Ltd., the Mutronium demo found it's way onto WFMU radio. 'When they asked us to play live on the radio,' says singer/synth player Joël. 'I was taken aback by this, there wasn't even a band yet!'. In the summer of 2004 they found guitarist/singer Scott Rio and Mutronium was born. Not being ones to follow the crowd, whether it's playing guitars with seashells, jewelry beads or a dentist tool, or tinkering with archaic home-made synthesizer modules, Mutronium continues to command attention and turn heads. Along with their energetic and impassioned live shows Mutronium produces a vitality that makes you excited to go out and discover new music again. And this is just the beginning of their story...
