This female-dominated power rock quartet comes through with this collection of powerful energetic rock songs and the attitude that there isn't anything women can't do. Life surely can provide you with some great song writing material and these gals and guy aren't shy about letting it show. One minute they blast furiously fiery punk rock songs and the next they're grooving with some provocative rock and roll. Jersey Beat Zine says 'Six to Eight Mathematics (try saying that three times fast), take a youthful adoration for the early 70's glam-rock era, all-things-punk, and gave it their own sound that is at times, stripped down to real-deal punk simplicity, and the energy of raw rock 'n' roll, creating a truly wonderful album of punk, rock, and pop, but with a difference. Their body of work (this is their second album and their third is due out soon hopefully), reveals rapid creative growth, especially in their stage presence. I caught STEM at Buddies Tavern last week at one of Lazlo's Blowup Radio Shows (check Blowupradio.com for future shows). Like Mike Grau who takes turns with Lazlo putting on shows at Buddies, sometimes you don't know the bands, but I assure you, you'll come away from any of their shows shaking your head, muttering to yourself like I did saying, 'How could I have not heard of such an amazing band before?!' It's an unavoidable comparison but Six to Eight Mathematics' intensity and musical mojo rivals that of bands like Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Pretenders, and Shonen Knife- and I'd go as so far to say that, my first impression of hearing Six to Eight Mathematics live is, that they have the ability to hold a crowd in the palm of their hands, much like the Ramones used to. STEM write simple, catchy melodies with lyrics about teenage angst like 'Am I Crazy,' 'Frustrated' and, on 'Mad Stereo,' which lays blame for the crap on most radio stations spit out, they demand good music and also for themselves to be heard, 'I know the truth and how had it can be/ Can't you see how mad the stereo can be?/ I wanna hear myself on the radio!' Six to Eight Mathematics sound instrumentally distinct while offering uniquely casting lyrics, telling stories and describing characters with impressive skill. This is exactly the type of band that were made to be on vinyl. Lots of singles abound, and there's pure punk in the grooves!' - Phil Rainone - Jersey Beat.
