A modern day musical army consisting of one man and his plastic lawn snowman Vanilla, the Junior Science Club recalled the electronic rock of They Might Be Giants and the odd and witty lyricism of Randy Newman and Danny Elfman. With songs immortalizing noodles, nuclear reactions, robots, lizards, and the standard metric system, the Junior Science Club defied the trappings of novelty music through inventive, layered instrumentation and complex arrangements. He has also designed numerous album covers for bands such as his sister’s band Tsunami Bomb and Dynamite Boy, in addition to The Velvet Teen and Fearless Records.
Through much of 2004 he had been battling a mysterious illness. In May, 2005 it was discovered that the ailments he was suffering were due to a cancerous brain tumor. Deciding to focus on his recovery, he left The Velvet Teen. He spent the better part of a year and a half going through numerous treatments for the recurring brain cancer. On December 3, 2006, Logan Whitehurst succumbed to a long battle with the illness and died at his home in Los Banos, surrounded by his family.
On December 4, 2006, Logan’s sister, Emily announced on Logan’s Myspace that his Very Tiny Songs project would be released in the near future. It was released on December 26.
