Chris AitkenEdinborough resident Chris Aitken is a professional musician with a bunch of credits he won't let us list. In his spare time, Chris likes lounging around, and does nothing but stare vacantly into space in hope of finding something inspiring one day. He knows hope is futile, because it doesn't exist, as Pandora left it in the box. He doesn't like things in boxes, and is always out of his box as a result. One day he hopes to snap out of it, and meet the real world. He is presently, and always has been a space case, despite his love for this planet. When he is really drunk, Chris has a habit of only being able to vaguely utter the words; "Live The Madness!" Chris likes this bio because it says very little about him. He also likes this third person persona because it reminds him of Julius Caesar.

Matt Jasper's daughter, EudoraMatt Jasper's daughter, EudoraMatt Jasper is a non-musician who learned three chords from Bill Callahan about twenty years ago and then went on to drive his kids to violin and cello and piano lessons so they could collaborate with him. His real band is Pneumershonic and his real book is Moth Moon. His kids (ages 8-13) have a portfolio of somewhat obscene childhood drawings in the Fall 2010 issue of Open Face Sandwich. Collaborating children include Eudora, William, and Albion. (photo is of Eudora inside her playable wearable cello) A much more formal song was attempted ("Some fathers have legs/ Some fathers have wooden pegs/ My father/ is like none of these/ He's got a progressive wasting disease. . . .") , yet everyone's concentration was shot by a certain family member going way bipolar and being hospitalized. Much of the recording (later sort of collaged) is what ensued after the command was issued to "make up a song about mental illness." This seem to suit the story--which, of course, the kids loved. Family friend Kalika Bower read her favorite passage over the top of the wreck.
