They've played 386 shows and toured extensively all around the United States. The band has shared the stage with artists like Sonic Youth, Acid Mothers Temple, Bardo Pond, the Butthole Surfers, Hawkwind, Chrome, Helios Creed, Indian Jewelry, Suisho no Fune, and many more as well as playing festivals like Terrastock, SXSW, Strange Daze, Weedstock and Flaxfield. They have scored and performed live original soundtracks to the Fritz Lang films Metropolis and Destiny (Der Mude Tod). Critics have had the following to say: ST 37, long-running specialists in bubbling-mercury riffage and German-flavored trance rock... - David Fricke (Rolling Stone) These Texas astronauts stuff their hash pipes to the brim and pay homage to Can, Amon Duul and Chrome...their psychedelicatessen of originals is stocked with brain-melting skree...- Fred Mills (Magnet) My favorite track on the album is "Concrete Island, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard...on first listening...I recalled reading this book so vividly and so perfectly, I was amazed. This recollection was unlike any feeling I have previously known or felt from music...- Adam Strider (StriderNews) From the moment the credits open, the band launches into a continuously evolving and strangely beautiful ethereal drone lasting the duration of the 1926 silent film classic. (from a review of ST 37's soundtrack to Fritz Lang's "Metropolis") - Michael Bertin (Austin Chronicle) A friend of mine said I would get a "kick" out of it...I did. - Byron Coley ..paint-blistering guitar and some elegant phased bass work poised atop droning vocal splendor... - Phil McMullen (Ptolemaic Terrascope) The piledriving Hawkwind-y/Wipers stuff near the end is still my favorite. - Jello Biafra ...real mindblown 1990s American garage sputter here! - Chris Stigliano (Your Flesh) Into the likes of Viv Akauldren, Loop, Chrome et al.?...wailing distorted guitars, effects and electronics...I await further releases with interest. - Alan Freeman (Audion) Twistedly psychedelic and swirling in a cyclonic stew...one of the most infectiously woven slabs of noise- as- music released since the 60s drug boom. - Andrea 'Enthal (Alternative Press) Melting Euphoria and the Texan band ST 37 are the two best working psychedelic bands in America today. - Andre (Crohinga Well)
