Mission Giant

Profile:
"The world of Mission Giant is a place where ordinary rock instruments like guitar, bass & drums have been discarded in favor of speak & spells, exercise records, ancient synthesizers and toy drum machines. Imagine excitable children who wear themselves out, only to get up again and bounce around some more. Okay, who delivered this truckload of synthesizers to Romper Room?" - Uncle Buzz Records

Mission Giant began making electronic music in the Fall of 1996 after the short-lived Denton, TX spacerock trio, Prismatic Otter, disbanded. Two of the former Otters, Gavin DeCuir and M, started to coax sounds from any device they could find which had an electric pulse. A third Texan, Aaron Graves, armed with only a banjo and an old turntable soon joined up. The band began to craft music with a mix of instruments including vintage synthesizers, children's toys, assorted drum machines, old exercise records on vinyl, pawn shop Casios, and a Sega Genesis video game system. In 1998, two other fellows, former Dooms U.K. member Corbett Sparks (D.J. Geeky C.), and former Good/Bad Art Collective member Shane Culp, enlisted to assist Mission Giant in the creation of songs. Although Mission Giant currently has 5 core members, membership is always in flux.
