The Mad Scientists are cool. I like this quote about them:

If you haven't seen them, they play this weird blend of psyche influenced rock with sharp funk rhythms and half shouted vocals. There is also some inexplicable guitar shredding to top it off but I've enjoyed them when I've seen or heard them. I prefer the originality of their music over a lot of Denton's "tasteful" retro country rockers, music theory students, jazz heads, and gear fetishists. - We Shot Jr - It List: Sat. 9/2/06

(That's a pretty good description of a lot of the Denton music scene....)
