Roladex
“Cathode Rays”

>>>>>group name derived from a common, era-appropriate (1970s) device for storing phone numbers and contact information.

>>>>>>>>>>>group vocalists’ voices sound like a Rolodex in that a Rolodex is emotionless, gray, and quirky looking.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Jerry Seinfeld has probably made a witty observation about Rolodi (plural of Rolodex) at some point in his career.

>>>>>song title derived from a ray of colored light (color depends on what kind of gas is used) consisting of charged electrons in a vacuum tube.

>>>>>>>>>>>song’s modular-style synth lines resemble what a cathode ray may sound like in that a cathode ray might sound like a triangle wave pure tone.

>>>>>video combines random brightly colored patterns with shots of the band having a staring contest and views of the planet Earth at various magnifications. Video is presented in square format.

>>>i would fcuk dance to this.

sample lyrics:

Reality is on the TV.”

First class ride on the endless express.”

on and on hum errr may shteys.”

something something something cathode rays.”
