Pure Science by Alyson Camus

When he sent me the song ‘Colorado’ by For Science, Iman told me that I will hate it and would might consider the lyrics prosaic. There are different kinds of lyrics, the complicated, intricate, cryptic ones that you can spend weeks or months figure out, and the direct, in your face ones you feel like a slap on your cheek and you know right away what’s going on. It’s all about the immediacy, the instant, no time to figure it out because it’s already over! It’s fast, it’s short, but it’s very powerful and the emergency of the delivery fits with the direct lyrics. It’s also loud but they don’t seem to neglect the melody. ‘Colorado’ from the debut album of For Science ‘Revenge For Hire’ is catchy as hell and certainly is not without reminding many bands from the Ramones to Social distortion. It’s about a desperate love story, a guy who wants to follow a girl to Colorado because he is ‘so in love with her’ but she does not know it and ‘it’s just a matter of time/before she meets another guy.’
For Science, a band out of New Brunswick, NJ, is John Slover on vocals, Joe Steinhardt on guitars, Zach Gajewski on bass, and Brian Gorsegner on drums. According to many interviews, Joe Steinhardt said John Slover was a great singer who was not into punk at first, but got completely sold on punk rock when he got into it. In 2005, they decided to form a band, despite the fact people thought it was insane. They released two full-length albums and an EP, but years later, they broke up when John, on acid, decided to quit everything to go to New Orleans. They are still friends and Joe has now his own label, Don Giovanni, he started with Zach. For Science is gone but the different members are still involved in making music.
So is Paul J. Steinhardt, the Albert Einstein professor of science at Princeton University, Joe’s dad? That would may be explain the name of the band. If it is really the case, that would be the second time I’m writing about a musician whose dad is a quantum physics genius (Mark Oliver Everett’s dad also was one)… weird!
