Formed in Santa Barbara, California, in 1994, Nerf Herder was signed to major label Arista Records soon after their ironic tribute "Van Halen" stormed the Modern Rock charts in 1996. The video for their follow-up single, "Sorry", featured Mark Hamill and Miguel Ferrer, and played regularly on MTV. Following years saw the band touring the world multiple times, and releasing a number of albums on various labels, including esteemed indie punk label Fat Wreck Chords and novelty powerhouse Oglio Records. The current band features founding members Parry Gripp and Steve Sherlock, with newer members Linus Dotson and Ben Pringle (ex-The Rentals). As of 2013, Nerf Herder has begun work on a new album.FartbarfJosh -Korg MS-20 Semi-Modular Synthesizer Arp Odyssey 2800 Dave Smith Instruments - Tempest Analogue Drum Machine Dave Smith Instruments Mopho X4 + Roland SVC-350 Vocoder Dan -Moog Little Phatty Synthesizer Oberheim SEM Dave Smith Instruments Mopho + Electro Harmionix Vocoder Brian -Ludwig Vistalites Roland SPD-30 Octopad Synthetic Woodblock Doepfer A-100 Modular Drum Synthesizer (In the works) -A mere handful of ape-like orderlies resisting a touchscreen future. Give us knobs or give us death!-We begin in the year 2008 with Josh, Dan and Brian. Three unassuming, well mannered and fun-loving fellows from a town near the sea. Regressed, mutated and collectively known as Fartbarf, they somehow bring us all into the future, captivating audiences with relentless melodies, robotically tight rhythms, and danceable beats by use of a strict limitation of tools at hand; vintage analog synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines, analog modular systems, and live drums. Fartbarf Manifesto: 1. Set public expectations low, but keep internal standards high. 2. Attempt only to please yourself if others choose like it, so be it. 3. Avoid all trends. Nothing good ever comes from following them. 4. Create what others cannot easily duplicate (and probably would't want to anyway). 5. Everything fun mustn't always be Fartbarf, but everything Fartbarf must always be fun.
