Just in time for summer's demise, three veteran Pennsylvania mindbenders emerge from the aether for a revival of sonic curiosities.

BROTHER JT founded garage pop band the Original Sins in 1987. Somewhere around 1990, JT morphed into Brother JT (dubbed as such by journalist Byron Coley), an alter-ego that allowed him to express his more experimental/psych side. Beginning with the monolithic feedback piece Descent (Twisted Village), JT explored both solo bedroom recordings (Rainy Day Fun (Drunken Fish), and full band excursions (Music For the Other Head (Siltbreeze), as Brother JT & Vibrolux) eventually working with producer Neil Hagerty on Way To Go, and Spirituals (Drag City). Along the way he would tour with Bardo Pond, Royal Trux, Bevis Frond, Blonde Redhead, and Smog. Of late he has taken to self releasing CD's accompanied by books of automatic writing/drawing. Chicago-based Thrill Jockey released «The Svelteness of Boogietude» in spring 2013. JT is also currently playing alongside Mike Lenert in Suffacox Mach 2.

LETTUCE PREY (former member of Caterpillar/Lilys/Hale Bopp Noise Ensemble, currently of Suffacox Mach 2) "...draws from 60s psych, folk, and wreck; 70s avant, punk, and devil worship; and 80s freakout, folkup, and fuzzface...(Nadav Carmel, BSR)" — suitable primer with Mud Pie Sun for the beautifully ineffable Brother JT…

MUD PIE SUN has spent the last quarter century or so in hermitage near the Caves of Kelpius, recording quiet and loud melodic pop-psych-folkrock-garage songs on ye olde 4-track.
" auto smash between a Morris Minor loaded with the solo recordings of Syd Barrett & a souped-up Dream Syndicate at their most experimental hot-rod." (Unhinged #9)
"...back-porch psychedelia...strung-out folk...spare and sometimes despairing like Sister Lovers..." (Did Not Chart)
