World Gang | http://music.wiener.us/

The Many Faces of Darrin Wiener and Jeremiah Green:
0, Plastiq Phantom, American Sheriff, 8===D, DJ's on Strike are just a few of the names that Mr. Wiener has gone by throughout his musical career, but his most recent and exciting project is World Gang, a collection of tripped-out synth waves and jungle beats made with renowned rock&roll drummer, Jeremiah Green. Mr. Green has worked most notably with Modest Mouse for more than a decade but has lent his nimble touch on animal hides to a few different groups based out of the Pacific Northwest such as Satisfact, Red Stars Theory, and Peeved. He has also toured with and appeared on the records (2 of which were produced by Mr. Wiener) of Seattle band, The Vells. Mr. Green has lent a hand on Mr. Wiener's most notorious alias, Plasitq Phantom. But now without further ado they bring you World Gang; an explosion of ambient noises and white fuzz, the medley of overlapping percussive techno beats, and the searing energy of synthesizers soaring through the subsonic stratosphere of sound. Enjoy their new fifteen and half minute single Promise.
