About How To Avoid Art

Found written on a mirror from 1987:

SUDDENLY
THERE WAS A LOUD NOISE
AND IT WAS REALIZED.
AND SOMEONE
SAID "YES! THIS IS MUSIC!"
AND IT WAS HEARD
A LONG TIME AGO...

...or so we were meant to think.
...or so we were thinking to mean.
...with the means, we were thinking of other things.
...now, those other things mean wasted time.

How To Avoid Art is less than it should be and more than it was

Present Day Past:

Originally a "side project" of Rob Stangle, he teamed up with a buddy who played guitar to once again take a shot at what was then called "techno metal". It went well, but the proverbial "cares of life", "musical differences", and "ripping of colostomy bags" eventually dissolved them.

Of course a year later, someone wanted them to do a show. With lyrics taped to the floor, a backing tape, and a host of committed musicians cancelling at the last minute, they opened for some R.E.M. clone. That went well. Between songs, Rob yelled, "I wanna see a PIT! A pit!" and jumped off stage to start a mosh pit. Brilliant. Remember, these people were present to hear alternative neo folk music, not mosh. It was nice seeing them try. It's always a good time when strangers kick each other in the head.

Hallmark Moments aside, after the show Rob and Dave never recorded together again.

Present Day:

There is a lab in Sykesville, Maryland. Underground. It was meant to house the devices used to create music, but that's not what the band was founded on. The original members went to the arcade and played video games for hours before turning on the first synth. As such, the lab in Sykesville has these distractions built in and around.

Rob Stangle continues How To Avoid Art by playing video games...and every so often put those machines to use.

Vital Info:

Band Members-Rob Stangle

The Fog's 11th Paradigm is a great place to buy Hot Wheels, action figures, fast food toys, comics, and MORE and discounted prices.

Influences-Preachers, video games, and movies. You weren't expecting bands, were you?
That's not influence, that's replication.
