The Pants Pants Pants philosophy is decidedly DIY. Whether it’s recording all three of their albums in a homemade studio, shooting five music videos, creating costumes, printing T-shirts or even designing and customizing their electronics, everything is kept within the family. The Pants Pants Pants stage show proves to be as varied as their musical offerings. Their unending list of exploits include a man-sized otter reciting spoken word, vocal parts cell phoned in from a singer in the audience or the Virgin Islands, epic on-stage Jenga battles, and a live cover of the video for “Mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm” by Canada’s beloved Crash Test Dummies. The band recently gained notoriety for their music video for “Born in the BBS” in which they recreated the intro to “Full House” shot for shot. It quickly became an Internet sensation with over 150,000 downloads and mentions on over 50 blogs including USAToday.com, Rocketboom and Stereogum.
Pants Pants Pants combines music, art and performance to provide a little something for everyone. As one reviewer describes, “Pants Pants Pants makes albums that mesh the weird clicks and beeps of sad eyed robot bartenders with strange, strong pop melodies, with occasional forays into rap territories.” Or to quote another, “Their instrumental choices, which involve as much crap (kids’ toys, cell phones, you get the point) as legitimate instruments, might take a cue from Self’s found-sound tomfoolery, and once you throw in the laptop-launched lunacy of Cex, you’ve got yourself a band. . .a band that throws their own milk-and-cookies intermission party and that lifts samples from Amadeus.”
