Andy Human & The Reptoids
Andy Human & The Reptoids
In a time where so many bands do little to tweak their influences, Andy Human & The Reptoids do what all great bands do: They take the past, hint at the future, and turn it all into the NOW. With punk energy, a new wave sense of economy, and the tap of power pop, these guys fold in Roxy Music, Devo (both the art and the pop sides), early Eno, and Pere Ubu, while making sounds that are very much their own. Raven Sings the Blues has called Andy Human's Freeze album “...a wobble of weird that makes the candy coating delightfully astringent...digesting Devo and Gary Numan through a faded VHS glam punk hangover and knocking the results crisply out of stacked speakers.”

The Reptoids are Cripe Jergensen, Beast Man, and Ra Diehl. They’ve been doing time in Drunk Horse, Sir Lord Von Raven, Girls, and LAND. Throw them in a bowl and stir them around and you’ve got a couple dozen records out of them, countless festival and SXSW appearances, and too many tours and shows to count.

Andy Human & The Reptoids are a band of cosmic assassins formed outta the muck by Andy Human. Andy Human is Andy Jordan. You know him from the Cuts, Time Flys, Buzzer, and LENZ (also Razz, Brain Glaze, and Factrix). He is one of the best Bay Area rock & roll songwriters around and an ace on guitar and keyboards.
