Ahoy, greetings, and salutations, Curious Primate is a band from Santa Monica, Ca without actually being from Santa Monica, Ca. One Chicagoan, two Nebraskans, and one Italian lad from Thousand Oaks, CA, with very little in common, except a love for the same pleasures, and living in a two bedroom apartment together, form the band. Pleasures? Playing funk rock music, no, not punk rock, funk rock. This is the sound of frustration, the sound of anger and wanting. Fueled by two years of living in a constant state of feeling disconnected from our previous lives. Mixed with joy and happiness achieved without warrant. Stolen happiness? No, but our happiness is our own and you might not want it. What I mean is the four of us have chosen to drive off the road and take the detour we saw fit for us, with very little previous knowledge of what was ahead. Just goals and ambition. A rebellious move played out by our fore fathers. But wait, what is Curious Primate? Why are we, a cut above the rest? We need to explore this because to truly study and understand a new species of questionable intelligence, one must first classify it. Without classifications and labeling, there is no understanding. It's a lack of understanding that will cause a great fear and mass hysteria for these we call humans. Well... Curious Primate is not; four well groomed pets, lonely and full of sadness, just waiting to be sold. Just another processed food, sold into markets across this ever winding land. A land of people sick of being forced fed what they are suppose to enjoy. Curious Primate is not from over seas and we can't charm you with high pitched whiny voices, and promises of eternal love. Curious Primate is not here to talk about high school or how hard it is to be a young suburban kid. Nor are we here to rep the streets. No matter how many gangs we run deep with. Curious Primate is not here to harm you or make you change your life. We see the world through our eyes so we can only interrupt it in our own way. We believe in choice and questions, we believe in having a good time even at the expense of you, and even at the expense of us. We drink beer, we smoke pot, and we f*** chicks, but we don't need to drink your beer, smoke your pot, or f*** your chicks. But that's not what we are all about, that's just some defining traits. STEREOTYPES if you will. And upon closer viewing and with some patience the underlying messages will be reveled as with many things in life. Idiots see red as a color, artists see it as passion, bulls see anger. See us as you will we are interested to find out what you think, no matter how vulnerable we are in your hands. We will not struggle like a fish out of water. We will embrace the fear and entertain. Curious Primate exists because the four members of this band cannot hear what we play together anywhere else. We don't claim our music can save your life, we are alive for now. If we continue to live, it saved ours. We just want to tour in the meantime and then all the time after that. And we think you just might like our brand of soon-to-be imitated and refurbished melodies. They will then be out sourced to China, so they too can have there very own Primates. We will be a cancerous, vile evil that cannot be stopped. Might as well enjoy the good times now. Soon we will be coming to your town asking if we can sleep at your place, use the stove and play your venue. So until we come knocking... peace and listen to our f***ing demo! We write music better than I write bios.
