Biography

Triclops! began in 2005 when Xtian from SF’s Bottles and Skulls and Johnny from Oakland’s Fleshies began collaborating on some new music. After finishing a tape with echo-laden-yet-visceral guitars/drums, vocals through half-broken solid state amps with phaser explosion, and both dudes attacking noise pedals/tape loops/randomly modified guitars, they began to realize the band was more than a little bit limited by the lack of a rhythm section. Having little luck in plying their native punk scene for people who could stomach the racket they had developed, they randomly responded to a Craigslist ad and struck unlikely gold in a spastic drummer named Phil from SF’s Lower Forty-Eight. Soon after, in Jan. ‘06, they called out to megaveteran bass player Larry of Victim’s Family/Hellworms/Saturn’s Flea Collar fame and Triclops! was born.

By August 2006, they recorded the Cafeteria Brutalia E.P. (w/ engineer Phil Manley of Trans Am, Fucking Champs, Golden) for renowned Chicago indie label SickRoom Records, which was released on February 6th, 2007 with a 12” Picture Disc version on Missing Finger Records from Brooklyn issued in March 07. On September 9th, 2007 came a picture disc 7” which turned out to be the last release for the highly influential Gold Standard Laboratories. In their short but productive existence Triclops! has shared the stage on some exciting and diverse show bills with bands such as Acid Mother’s Temple, Don Caballero, Free Moral Agents, Hanson Brothers and Circle.
