Attention Deficit

"Attention Deficit"

The Story
Call it mad scientist rock, or call it simply mad. Whatever it is, "Attention Deficit" have entered the lab and blown it up, reaching right into the atom heart mother of improvisational mondo rock, combining their trinity of disparate elements, and letting new sonic monsters find life. The group is an exotic amalgam of bass, guitar and drums, a necessary far-flung exploration that sprung naturally and spontaneously from the collective mindmeld of three diverse and divergent talents, guitarist Alex Skolnick, drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander, and bassist Michael Manring. The joy of it all is to watch creativity take flight, to hear what three instruments and three distinct musical histories can conjure. The bottom line is this: three true artisans have gotten together for a bit of high science, even if the jump-off point is built of raw intuition. What they've come up with offers immediate and powerful gratification to students of instrumental performance, and not so quick, but ultimately similar gratification to those who just love visceral, challenging music. We strongly suggest you pay attention. The rewards are real.
