Eric Nordhauser - he''s from San Fransisco by way of Chicago. Video Artist, DJ, Musician (Savage Fantasy, the Nightbugs). Used to run The Showcave in SF with Jamie.

Eric Mahle - From Chicago, the city not the band, currently in Sybris.
Fritz Doreza - Chicagoan currently in The Decibators.
Ted Sams & Lara Bush - Formely lost in Portland, currently lost in Thailand.
Ted Davee - The other AV guy at Reed. Makes some noise.

BENT IS - Another E-lectronic shitfest from Jim Holmes. This version features songs composed mainly from circuit bent children''s toys, drum machines and human beatboxing. Songs reviews from https://www.tradebit.com decribe the music as "a pointless exercise in digital editing", "a bunch of samples strewn together without thought or reason", and my favorite "I waited forever for this song to start. Then I wished it didn''t". While I mostly agree with the insight and thoughtfulness of these critics, I will say that the music is not sampled. It''s played live to analog tape with little editing and no regard for music theory or artistic integrity.
