mr sterile Assembly are a two-piece from Aotearoa New Zealand. Formed in 2001, they have released 4 albums, a book, and toured in Australia, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia. They have been classified as punk, math rock, experimental, noise rock, alt rock and outsider punk, and think the latter is as close as it gets. They have a distinctive, South Pacific sound based on unusual and urgent time signatures, repetitive heavy rhythms, and angular lyrics. Songs are typically epic, with complex arrangements, and often recount the personal stories behind current or historical events.
