A weirdly convoluted tale of UFOs, mind control, sexual frustration, and the Roman Empire forms the backstory of Fergus & Geronimo’s sophomore album, Funky Was the State of Affairs. The details of this sci-fi scenario aren’t spelled out so much as alluded to in a series of demented soundclips and short, snappy tunes that blend Frank Zappa–esque absurdity with the jittery abandon of early punk.

No Parties" - Fergus & Geronimo Via Pitchfork. Andrew Savage and Jason Kelly have recorded several singles and, with the arrival of Funky Was the State of Affairs, two albums as Fergus & Geronimo. They've drawn inspiration from the Mothers of Invention, 1950s doo-wop, Motown soul, 60s British Invasion pop, and garage rock. Their musical vision is expansive, but their perspective is narrow and specific: Savage and Kelly live to take the piss out of indie rock.

With sophomore album Funky Was the State of Affairs, the always conceptual exas duo dives deeper into the same re-envisioning of sounds, this time in the form of a ramshackle narrative about intergalactic dating that owes more musically to Devo than it does the doo wop or British Invasion rewrites that made up Unlearn. No Parties" is a keyboard-driven new wave punk workout that sounds right out of 1981, but sung in a ridiculous fake English accent
