History

The band was originally formed in 2001 as a three-piece, consisting of Joe Shrewsbury, Paul Wolinski, and Iain Armstrong. One of the several stories circulating as to the origin of their name is that they formed to provide the soundtrack for the unreleased and little known (and almost certainly fictional) John Carpenter film Stealth Bomber starring Kurt Russell. The film was set over '65 Days of Static' a period of time after some unknown global breakdown in communications and infrastructure, from which the band supposedly took their name [1]. John Howard Carpenter (born January 16, 1948) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, film score composer and occasional actor. ...

Feedle joined for a brief period and played a part in writing the band's first single from The Fall of Math, "Retreat! Retreat!". By the end of 2003 Rob Jones (drums) and Gareth Hughes (bass) had been recruited, increasing the band to four members. Gareth left around the time of the release of their debut album The Fall of Math. Simon Wright took over on bass duties. The Fall Of Math is the first album by the Sheffield, UK, instrumental math rock band 65daysofstatic, released on September 20, 2004 through Monotreme Records. ...
