FLiP and J have been writing this stuff for a long time now, and have recently come upon the help and insights of Shaadie.
Semi-melodic at times, and almost always toying with some level of chaos, we just write what we like. There's very little theory involved. We let our ideas come out as musical phrases ,and are still refining the process of making coherent statements out of those elements.
We started as a blaring grunge static-duo, and are branchihng out now. we don't know what's coming anymore than you do. So, let's just see how this goes.
Jay and FLiP have been playing in bands together since high school. Shaadie's drumming has been a recent (and wonderful) addition.
