The Halo Benders
Out of the basement rock n' rule that is Dub Narcotic Studio came the angel noise from the comet's tail. Doug Martsch (Built To Spill, Treepeople) visited Olympia from his home in Boise, Idaho, bringing a guitar and other battered ideas. Calvin Johnson sang and played along. Other Boisians-in-exile like Ralf Youtz (Built to Spill, Sone) and Wayne Flower (Treepeople, Violent Green) contributed to the melee. Steve Fisk played some keyboards through ancient amplifiers and helped sort out the whole mess at the mixing console. This was interstellar punk/pop overdrive. Bending brainwaves and calling it art. Knocking icicles down, melting angels all over town. Heaven sent with halo bent.
