Tree and Goo-dum originally met in 2007 at Abu-Ghraib. While they were on different sides of the conflict, Goo-dum could recognize a talent in the arrhythmic patterns Tree used while waterboarding him. As distinctive as a fingerprint. Their time together there was cut short, as Goo-dum was then shipped to a different location. it wasn't until earlier this year that they met up again at Guantanamo, where goodum instantly recognized the signature patterns of Tree's waterboarding. Tree, in turn recognized the melodies in Goo-dum's screams. While the 2 were wearing masks through their entire relation up to this point,. the recognition of professionalism and talent went beyond simple torture tactics. As only men on either side of a pointless conflict could, with great respect for their adversaries, they saw an opportunity to move the world with these patterns and unusual melodies. Thus was hatched the seed of ESAD.
Axeman Joe was found at a petting zoo in Arkansas, where his unique goat stroking techniques were seen by the founders of the band to produce... gooey, and unusual tones from the goat - his preferred instrument. For the sake of the band, he used these techniques on a guitar, but only after the promise from the rest of the band that he could use them in studio recording on his preferred goat.
Fungus was kidnapped from a kazoo doo-wop band, where he was the baritone kazooist. It was a short distance for the band to move him from baritone kazoo to bass guitar. His doo-wop experience included much study of jazz charts and other wankish crap. Despite this intelligence and education they hired him as a session musician on the recording, on the one condition that he play all shows with them in a cloak of invisibility , on an invisible bass, whose tone was set to invisible. Through an invisible amp. With an invisible cable.
We'll say it one more time.
Who the really cares about a Bio anyway? what is this a job interview? you want our resumes too? grammar school grade reports? references from 3 people who we are not related to?
we're going back to stroking our invisible waterboarded goat.
