Giraffe Tongue Orchestra
Giraffe Tongue Orchestra is William DuVall, lead singer of Alice In Chains; Brent Hinds, guitarist of Mastodon; & Ben Weinman, guitarist of Dillinger Escape Plan. The musical group was originally formed by Ben Weinman and Brent Hinds, birthed out of a 15 year friendship and periodic collaboration.
S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D.
S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D.
Sociopathic Time Altering Robot Warrior Of Organic Design (S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D):

Named and designed after what would become the Human religious concept of “The Archangel,” Gabriel Starwood was created by the Vitruvians as “a man-machine and master manipulator,” capable of entering and controlling the Human body. This android's ability to garner earthly avatars is achieved through its self-replicating nanite infused sperm, providing total control over any and all who come in contact with its ejaculate.

Accompanied by a small, yet crucial team of Vitruvian Androids, the Propaganda Performance module of the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. mission has taken form as a “Cyber Rock” quintet. Raising the awareness of mankind for the sake of the cosmos, a typical S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. performance centers on the values of the Vitruvian species, their eventual destruction at the hands of the expansionist hordes, and the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. prototype’s mass manipulation of the Human race.

The quintet is comprised of a classical pianist, an effected bass guitar, an analog synthesizer, looped and effected vocals, and drums. Theatrical in presentation, primal in execution, and psychedelic in nature, the resulting sound is comparable to that of a woolly mammoth being downed by laser-spears, falling face first into a pagan orgy.
