Founded as a studio-only outfit, Max Maharaja plays high energy mega-rock, sexy bossa nova, swank funk, stoner reggae, and trippy psychedelia.

In summer 2014, an album called EZ2H8U was released via Fat Free Radical Records, a DIY label based between Mira Mesa and Scripps. The album includes two covers, an instrumental version of Judas Priest's “Electric Eye” called “Electric Eye Socket” and a Weird Al Yankovic-styled spoof of “Purple Haze” entitled “Purple Joose."

According to the band, “The humorous lyrics lightheartedly cover topics like religious gullibility, well-developed female anatomy, personal accounts of post-zombie apocalypse, tales of the cerebrally disadvantaged, and other assorted existential lunacy.”
