About the band: A fully live electronic band, Weird Gear use only elderly analogue synthesisers (mainly from between 1973-1985), drum machines and efx pedals. They employ elementary mathematical and scientific principles to create their work - with a view to create an almost computerised music sound totally without the use of computers. And in case anyone else fancies a go at this sort of thang, here are all the nerdy techy details of what went into making their Geek Pop '10 set:

Leeetle starKeyboards: Siel Orchestra 2 | Casio CZ-3000 | Korg MS-10 | Korg Microkorg | Korg MiniKorg 700S | Roland Juno 6
