Having grown jaded by what had become the definitive portrait of the indie/math rock aesthetic throughout the 1990s -- a sulking, shiftless-when-idle mentality juxtaposed with sarcastically witty lyrics and contemplative, intricate instrumentation that one can only stand motionless to and with blank facial expressions -- New York's Radio 4 formed in 1999 to offer the antithesis of that formulaic tedium. Radio 4's logic has stayed its course: a defiant belief in its post-punk-influenced stance of rhythm, movement and ultimately, to hit the post-punk dance floor and get down. Employing a minimalist, sparse technique in its guitar-bass-drums line-up for their first long-player, 2000's The New Song and Dance, Radio 4 achieved maximum infectious grooves while wearing the influences of late '70s Brit-punk on their proverbial sleeves. Reverberating from Anthony Roman's (ex-Garden Variety) booming, melodic bass-lines, Tommy William's clattered guitar scratch and Greg Collins's skittish beats, this is a propensity towards Joy Division meets Gang of Four/Clash/Joe Jackson-like anthems intended to provoke audience reaction: a dance-inducing reaction absent from this pretentious underground rock scene for too many years.
