From 2007's 'On a Desert Island'
I've been listening to dance music a lot lately -- even in my own apartment, rather than at parties and bars. I want music that makes my feet tap and my hips shake.
Professor Murder is a dance band that sounds refreshingly different. Their music can be narrowly defined as dance punk mixed with island riddims. Imagine them a marching band, with the lead singer blowing a whistle when it's time for the three other members to jump in line. This makes for quite the riotous time, whether you're hearing it through your headphones on the train or through speakers in your apartment. Though of course, as with most party-time dance bands, it's heard best live.
The first time I saw Professor Murder live was in the basement of the Cake Shop, a tiny club on Manhattan's Lower East Side. There's no stage and a low ceiling covered in Christmas lights. From the moment they started playing the whole crowd was dancing. 'Civilization Three' is just one of many party tunes in PM's arsenal.
