The Beta Band were a Scottish musical group formed in 1996. They were critically acclaimed and have achieved a cult status. Their style was described as being "folktronica", a blend of folk, Scottish, electronic, rock, trip hop, and experimental jamming. The Beta Band disbanded in 2004. During the course of their career, they were hailed by both Radiohead and Oasis.
Their third official album HEROES TO ZEROS captures the focused immediacy and power of their epic live shows, while maintaining the sample-tastic digital sorcery of their previous releases. Mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Air, Beck). When the Beta Band first hit in 1998 with The Three EPs, the band seemed incapable of doing wrong with their infectiously murky, psychedelic mixture of contemporary electronic and early 70s stoner rock.

IS IT possible to have set expectations of a Beta Band album? The 3 EPs, followed by their still bewildering eponymous debut, then 2001's tighter, more electronic Hot Shots II: none of these seemed to lead into the next. Rather, they nailed down a definition of the band (to fans) as intriguing experimentalists and (to detractors) self-indulgent noodlers.
