PLANTS - Plants
"Not much to remember about 1993 ?? other than discovering Dead C and several seasons of meeting up with Jeff Dunn and John Olson at 1610 Kalamazoo St in Lansing MI ?? in the rocket room (upstairs, middle room) and the attempt to fill every floating atom with solid sound. We firstly prepared with weed ?? from the pipe to the 2 liter gravity bong to the milk jug gravity bong then graduating to the road cone gravity bong. Jeff would play guitar, Olson would play drums, sax, or perhaps guitar, Ramirez usually played guitar but on this session, keyboards and tapes. It would always be a solid blowout, no escape from the sound with everything always colliding and creating languages, stories or whatever. It was pointless to play live (we did once ?? in a pitch black basement days after Cobain tapped out, with only one person in attendance who was tripping hard). It was a good self-indulgence figuring that no one would get it or give a shit so Plants was a Gents Club for weirdos and destructos. This particular splot happened on 12/15/93 at around 6am in the morning (I had a morning flight to catch). The session creeped out of the shingles and into the ears of passerby schoolchildren who looked at the house as if it were levitating. This session was messed up and bent as usual, full on vintage scree manipulation of our instruments the only unordinary thing was that it was in daylight. No songs, just attempting fill every corner and crack with sonic abuse and then when the session ends ?? we just stare at each other with creeper grins like we just built an orb and sent it out in to space in hopes of other life forces intercepting it instead of whatever NASA sends into space to reach out to other worlds. Our orb holds truer ?? reflecting chaos in our world. Plants reflects some messed up shit, but it??s good shit. Note* This is not the same two-piece current band "Plants" from Portland, OR" - Bryan Ramirez.
