SOME PEOPLE think musicians are weird, and many would think The People's Temple weird.

Like George who spends his spare hours walking alone around the city... his favorite all-time job was running a merry-go-round because "people didn't bug me and I could think." And Will who reminds himself not to be vain by placing a mirror so high above his apartment floor he can't see himself. Or Alex who doesn't smoke, drink or eat meat and would like to travel to India to "study the mystic religious life there." And happy-go-lucky Spencer who almost became a Certified Public Accountant like his mother, until he began "freaking out in the music field" and hasn't added a column of figures since.
The Lansing, Michigan band met while growing up in Perry - a small town 20 minutes outside of Lansing. While still in high school the brothers became influenced by '60s psych, folk, and shoegaze, which show in the band's reverberated sound. The band started playing gigs in the Lansing area in 2008 and has since developed a reputation of performing wild stage shows, with ample guitar feedback.

The band has 7-inch EPs on Certified PR Records, Milk-n-Herpes Records and HoZac Records. Their debut LP, "Sons of Stone" was released in Mayl 2011 on HoZac Records. Also a 7" on Goodbye Boozy appeared in late 2011. The band is working on a new studio album for 2012.

Thanks for reading all of that.
