THE IRRADIATES are four brothers, a product of the star-crossed encounter of a guitarist father and astrophysicist mother. Bound as much by their blood as their love of science, all four of the world renowned researchers left on a quest to find a sidereal material which hypothetically possesses the power to improve musical performance capacities. While taking samples, they were struck by burning green radiation emitted from a still unidentified planet. Upon their return to earth in the spring of 2007, they were locked in a decontamination unit where they took up their instruments and passed 10 surf classics through a radioactive filter.
Their first album, FIRST RADIATIONS, traversed the stratosphere in 2008. Under the direction of the eminent Professor FREDER (Great scientist of German origins, and specialist of human brain function) and his faithful disciple, the T1 Robot, they undertook over one hundred missions in France, Germany, England, Switzerland and Norway.
Rapidly, our four geeks amassed sufficient data to begin on a new body of work. Very interested in the American laboratory of Professor Albini, they set course for Electrical Audio in Chicago in October of 2009. Isolated over a 10 day period in the B laboratory with Professor A, they pondered their new concept. Eleven audio fragments for an album that offers an explication of the principals of mental manipulation by sound. AUDIO MENTAL MANIPULATION DEVICE is currently available in all good laboratories.
The Freeborn Brothers are two men orchestra. They preach the gospel of trash country-blues-rockandroll-metal stuff. In times of glitter stars and pomped ass bitches Brothers are bringin a little bit of roots and old time energy to heal souls this sick world from habits and diseases. Line up is pretty easy as for two men band; Matt is picking the guitar singin stompin on goddamn tambourine and playin the accordion in the same Niko is picking the banjo also tryin to sing and kick that bassdrum, snare and hihat, using the worlds finest sinwasher called washboard and also messing up with Matt's guitar in the same time he is in the bathroom... and that is why they are called the Freeborn Brothers - Two Men Orchestra!
