Farquar Muckenfuss
Since the cold part of 19XX, the goal of Farquar Muckenfuss has been to achieve complete control over the fore and aft sections of the human brain.

After years of surgical testing on subjects both human and non, the Collective, to their surprise, found the best option to be with a gentle touch. They needed to obtain a willing subject and to appeal to most, if not all senses at once.

This subject, gathered by any means necessary, would be bombarded with various light temperatures while being spoon fed their favorite meal. Meanwhile, randomized noise patterns would swirl about the room via the 67 bronze mounted speakers overhead.

The results were favorable.

Not long after mastering this recipe in the balmy part of 2XX1, the Farquar Muckenfuss laboratory, affectionately known as the Biological Lounge, was unfortunately shut down due to rising costs of lead and dwindling subject enrollment.

It was also this time that their star subject had gone both missing and rogue. The head researchers hunkered into the rumpus wing of their compound in order to write new material and find the root of this botheration.

In the unseasonably warm part of XX12, and after years of silence, it was determined that the time had finally come to emerge from hibernation for the express purpose of sharing the latest Farquar Muckenfuss findings and finally playing some more shows.
Six Acre Lake - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Six Acre Lake
In 1997, while sitting in a booth at the Locust Bar in Philadelphia, drummer Jeremy Beaudry and guitarist John Schlicter formed Six Acre Lake. The idea was simple enough, two dudes writing and recording instrumental tunes heavily influenced by all things post-, math-, noise-, and surf-rock. The mighty Mr. Beaudry eventually sought a different path and stepped away from music...

Enter two new, talented drummers: Joe Getz (Mercury Radio Theater) and Mark Sconyers (Do You Need The Service). Both of these fine Philadelphians participated in a Six Acre Lake writing and recording frenzy. The fruits of that labor is currently finding itself pressed to 180 grams of self-released, vinyl sweetness.
