Pittsburg/San Diego duo Jacob Ciocci (keyboard) and David Wightman (drums) describe themselves as a Noise/Techno/Pop band. Extreme Animals are like bastard twins born of a gang bang with Utah Saints, Amon Düül and Dee-lite. They are as much performance piece as a high energy level musical show, maniac live drumming, extreme feedback malfunctions, slightly choreographed dance moves – encouraging the audience to get involved. David Wightman studies orchestral composition. Jacob Ciocci is also a member of the art collective Paper Rad (comics, installations, websites animations), known for their weird and incredibly colorful animations. Extreme Animals belong to a new branch of US-American art and music underground that Lightning Bolt might have delivered a blueprint for. Lo-fi aesthetics, hande-made objects and designs, glaring and contrasting colors, psychedelic motifs, a childlike and bold humour, absurdism and an overdose of positive energy characterize the creative universe of Extreme Animals like their kin The Locust, Flying Luttenbachers, E*Rock, JYRK, Eats Tapes and Mumbleboy.
