ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
STUPID (stoo'pid, styoo'pid, stew'pid, stuu'peed, sssstoo'ped, shtup'id) n. Badassed, female-fronted punk band from Brooklyn. Lead singer and punk accordionist Dana Ehrlich's onstage energy has been likened to Chrissie Hynde on speed. Time Out NY describes them as "...like X but with a better ear..." while the Village Voice says they're "...reminiscent of the Pixies..." and Punk Planet calls them "...dirty NYC rock...". Stupid is also regularly featured in TV promos and show-opens (incl. Spike TV, TNN, AOL, Nickelodeon)and on film soundtracks (incl. "Devils Are Dreaming" and "Jimmy Neutron"). So put that in your pipe and smoke it!! Check www.stupidband.com for more! Also check www.pluguglyfilms.com for Plug Ugly Mgmt who handles the band.

1. Dana Ehrlich (vocals, accordion, keyboard) stupefied, in a dazed or stunned state; taught herself accordion during the Second World War where she entertained French partisans with Ramones covers. Transplanted to New Jersey where she was promptly run out of town by accordion hating Giants fans. Experimental theatre reject - no, really.

2. Matthew Bixby (guitar, bass, screaming loudly) - slow to learn or understand: obtuse; recognized early on as being either highly talented or slightly retarded. Found wandering on the Interstate between Albany and New York. Probably looking for gainful employment this very minute.

3. Byrd (vocals, bass, guitar) lacking or marked by a lack of intelligence; winner of multiple awards including Best Seventh Grader and Best Camper; very tall when compared to short people.

4. Ben Hoyumpa (drums) pointless: worthless; fell into a pit of radioactive snakes at an early age and gained supernatural kick-ass powers from their venom. Regularly wears tights and a cape when he's home alone. Can kick a can off your head.

[Latin stupidus, to be stunned by a badassed punk band from Brooklyn; French stupide, to be French yet stunned by a badassed punk band from Brooklyn.] Synonyms: punk, dumb, accordion, obtuse, loud-yet-listenable, dense, sexy, stupid-assed. Stupid, the most inclusive, means wanting in intelligence: Despite his boyish good looks and rock star moves, Matt is pretty freakin' stupid. Slow and dumb imply chronic sluggishness of perceptions, reaction, or understanding: Dana, a somewhat slow minded dame, was dumb enough to throw her accordion during a rockin' set at Luna Lounge, busting it into a million pieces. Dense suggests impenetrability of mind: Ben, the confused drummer boy, gave the crowd a typically dense look when they cried out for more punk rock. Stupid-assed implies intellectual equivalency of one's ass: Damn, that Byrd is just stupid-assed.

-stu'pid adj. -stu'pid-er adj. -stu'pid-est adj. - stu'pid-ly adv. -stu'pid-ness n. ant: intelligent (well duh...).

This one kicks ass
The music of the female fronted band Stupid is fresh, wild and full of energy. That a few qualities I'm missing at todays major Punk Rock bands. "Hey, Alright", "Red Sweater" and "I'm Not Going" are my favorite tracks. If you think an accordion player in a punk band sounds weird, than check out "I'm Not Going". Sure, it's weird, but the accordion fits perfect to the whole song structure. Buying this CD is anything but Stupid.

Matt Bixby (Another One)

It's gotta be good, because I'm in it. Well, no, actually I'm not.
Uh, I can't actually write it about the CD, yet. I want to hear it because my name is also Matt Bixby. I also live in Albany... Oregon. Pretty ironic, huh. I'm a professional DJ, and though I play many stupid songs, I've never played any Stupid songs. Power to the Matt Bixby's of the world!

I've just bought this MONSTER based on the little clips. Sounds scary-good
I had only heard 2 little MP3s before I decided I'd love it.
More like an angrier Suger Cubes than anything else.
Congratulations

Where has STUPID been all my life!?!?!?
I love the way Stupid captures the sounds that are in my mind, I don't know how to explain that, it's like certain sounds they create, is what I always want to hear. That may sound retarded, but in a nutshell they f*cking rock. I wish them much success in the future and strongly support them throughout their musical career! I LOVE THEM!!!!! Looking forward to more from them...

This is one of my favorite CDs of the year. It has as much emotion if not more than any punk band in history. Where else are you going to hear the punk-accordion??? Well??
