Anything Box is four guys using guitars, make noise and computers to make binary tripped-out, emotionally tinged elektrodelic (their word) pop music. The name comes from an vague Sci-Fi curt story from the 60's astir a young girl who sees an idealized fantasy world when she cups her two hands.
Anything Box began in the bedroom of lead singer/songwriter Claude S. as an escape from the banality of everyday life in Paterson NJ, an urban town whose claim to fame is a High School principal who carried a bat in the halls, and where the first Colt 45 was built. Amidst the drug deals outside his kitchen window and bar fights across the street, Claude dove within the introverted comfort of songwriting influenced by John Lennon, Disco, Pink Floyd, The Kinks, Joy Division, New Order, and Kraftwerk.
After 25 releases and over 300 shows to match, Abox (as they are known to their fans) has since become an international oddity of electronic music. Live, their energy is matched only by their antics and the switching of instruments. With Paul Rjinders on guitars and synths, Dave South on bass and samples, and Gary (Claude's brother) providing back-beats with his mouth, they have maked an ever-evolving sonic signature. In a word, elektrodelic.
