Where are they now: Crazy Town

So you may well ask, who are these orange, topless, tools with the peroxide hair and shitty ink? The answer, dear friends, is Crazy Town, of ‘Butterfly’ fame. “Come my lady, come come ma lady, you ma butterfwy, suga, babey.” Now you remember! Yep, it’s them, that hideous off spring of the ‘rapmetal’ genre, a time in the 2000s everyone would rather forget. Crazy Town, formed by Bret Mazur and Seth Binzer, shot to fame after supporting the Red Hot Chilli Peppers on tour. However, they split up after the largely unsuccessful release of their second album, Darkhorse.

The band announced in 2007 that they were working on a new album creatively entitled ‘Crazy Town is Back’, but alas, the record has never come to fruition. 2010 saw the band play SRH FEST 2010, where they debuted new track ‘Come Inside’. They didn’t specify to where. One might have hoped this would be the end of Crazy Town, but in 2013 they announced a new album, The Brimstone Sluggers, was in the works, and released a free download single called ‘Lemonface’. Perhaps ‘Orangeface’ would have been a more apt title.
