I haven't thought of that song for ages. The more references to west coast unsigned greats of the 90s, the better.

Re: Mandibles: nur ein Gig

We are, at present, all reasonably local. But Zidong is soon going to grad school somewhere in deepest CT. And Cybronica isn’t committed to these parts.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

Mandibles’ song is based on the apocalyptic visions of John the Revalator. Cybronica created an ambient soundscape with her voice, singing Rev 3:20. Zidong and myself sang verses over the top. The coda features the voices of all three of us gathered around a mic.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw me enter this competition with both Cavedwellers AND a new joint called Mandibles (Cybronica, Zidong and I).
