Lars Finberg started The Intelligence 10 years ago, and we give thanks to the lo-fi, fuzzy, garage-rock dopeness that was born. Originally from Seattle, the band made their way to Los Angeles and has pumped out numerous cool-tite jams and albums, including Deuteronomy (2007), Fake Surfer (2009), Males (2010), and Everybody’s Got it Easy But Me (2012). The debut album from 2004, Boredom and Terror has been remastered and reissued on a double LP, and is available now on In The Red Records. The first 200 copies come on grey with black splatter vinyl!!!

“Originally released on Narnack Records in 2004, Boredom and Terror is the first time Lars Finberg stepped out from behind the A-Frames‘ drum kit to showcase his own music. Later releases by the Intelligence were fleshed out with additional musicians but on this debut album Lars was an army of one armed with an 8 track recorder and a notebook full of songs. The results are as original as they are incredible. This is lo-fi post punk electro garage-core that is equal parts Devo, The Fall and something altogether it’s own.” – In The Red Records
