Biography

Namesake
Marmalakes was born in the fold of an old notebook found in a used bookstore on the west side of a letter street in Washington, D.C. Someone had written it there long ago before any of the members of the band and even before the idea of their great uncles’ birth had been conceived.


L.M. Pineworm, owner of the bookstore, who was pushing his 89th year as store owner and his 114th year on earth, moved swiftly with his fingers through a shelf of very organized, yet very nonsensical papers and from the middle, yet a bit to the left, he carefully plucked out a brown, unmarked notebook. It had been dropped off as part of a box in the summer of 1988 after the reading of a man named Wayne Paul Francis-Awn’s will. The will stated, “My beloved mother’s notebooks will be placed in the hands of Mr. L.M. Pineworm, her childhood companion and most impassioned friend.”

On an early Tuesday summer morning (he adored Tuesdays), L.M. opened to the first page. It was blank, of course, he knew it would be. She always left the first pages of her notebooks clean so that she would always have something fresh to flip back to. Henrietta “Marma” Awn was very particular.
