Sparta took the pop road, while Bixler and Rodriguez take a more experimental journey with their 2002 debut, Tremulant, an EP of three, count 'em, three songs that takes elements of free jazz and psych-rock, throws some effects pedals in there for taste, and adds a little minor-key goodness on top.
For those hungry for more, the afroed ones' full-length album comes out in June with the delicious title De-loused in the Comatorium. Now for the scary part: They're on tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snoop Dogg! We can forgive them for touring with Snoop, because, well, he's Snoop. But some other bands just need to take off the tube socks and call it a career (yeah, looking at you, Kiedis).
