Mike Terrell – Percussion, Vocals


Mike Terrell feels kind of bad about it, but at the same time, he kind of likes it. As a 9th grade grammar student, Mike participated in a regional science fair. His science project involved the nurturing and study of bacteria. For over a year, he kept petri dishes that contained different forms of bacteria in his parents’ basement. He experimented with a variety of stimulants and nutrients and recorded his findings. One morning, he was surprised to find that his bacteria had become intelligent. Immediately he went to work on a mode of communication. He interfaced his computer to an extravagant diorama living space he had created for them. He was soon able to communicate with entire cultures and sub-cultures of bacteria. In time, the bacteria began to refer to him as Thor, Ra, Baal and many other proper names. Mike modified his experimentation by supplying natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, and writing a canonized set of commandments for his bacteria.
