PUNCH DRUNK was formed in late 1991 in South Philadelphia, PA. PUNCH DRUNK abandoned 'traditional' instruments and began working exclusively with electronic percussion, sequencers & computers. Their live shows consisted of laser lighting, fog machines, strobes, and an array of cheap electronic toys. The music, self-described as Hardtech Robocore, was loud, quirky, and aggressive. UPLOAD THE PAST...DOWNLOAD THE FUTURE is a collection of remastered tracks recorded during 1992 - 1994. Some tracks have appeared on previous releases and others have never been released before. 'If Devo and Kraftwerk mated and made a family of lil' baby robots who grew up to be Slayer fans, you'd have something pretty close to Punch Drunk.' - Philadelphia Weekly 'Sheer sensory overload is the most accurate description of this technological audio/video assault.' - Philly Rock Guide 'Punch Drunk doesn't present ideas and wait for you to absorb them, they force-feed information whether you like it or not. This assault is not unintentional. It's a focused attempt to influence the audience by sheer speed and power of the performance.' - Bizzare Sex Chronicles.
