Biography

The Centimeters are an eccentric band from LA, sometimes described as The Addams family meets Kurt Weil. The Centimeters started their metric rise to infamy in 1996, when Max Gomberg and Nora Keyes of The Parkas began to collaborate on material in an effort to produce a more refined sound; they met punk pioneer Don Bolles of The Germs and Transparency label owner Michael Shepard in 1997. The Centimeters gained an influential new fan in David J of Bauhaus, who had them open for Love And Rockets’ last shows at the Roxy. In 1998 The Centimeters met Charles Schneider who had an idea to direct a video for “I’m Not Exercising Enough.” The video was be shot in black and white film and featured David J and Kyle McCulloch (Tales from Grimley Hospital) in guest spots. Ultimately the footage was cut to the song “Help is On the Way,” and released in 2001. The current lineup consists of Max Gomberg, Nora Keyes, Ray Day, Creekbird, Phillip Haut, Rebecca Lynn.
