Biography

ON A PLANET KIND OF LIKE EARTH (BUT NICER), THE BMOVIE EXTRAS FORMED IN THE WAKE OF AN INTENSE GAMMA RAY BURST BROUGHT ON BY THE COLLISION OF A MOOG ORGAN AND A MARSHALL STACK. WHEN A BLACK HOLE THREATENED TO SWALLOW THEIR ENTIRE GALAXY, THE BAND DECIDED TO GO ON TOUR--TO EARTH. HOPPING THE NEAREST COMET TO THE MILKY WAY THEY TOUCHED-DOWN IN PORTLAND, MAINE...THE HOME OF A THRIVING MUSIC SCENE.

SINCE THEN THEY HAVE BEEN BURNING THE MIDNIGHT PHASER GUN. THE THREE R's...RITIN', RECORDIN' AND ROCKIN'. AND LIKE A BEAST WITH A BIG HEART...IT GROWS.

THE BMOVIE EXTRAS SECRET LABORATORY HOUSES SOME DARK, OTHER-WORLDLY EXPERIMENTS. SCHEMATICS OF AURAL GENIUS, AS NIGHTMARISH AS THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL, LITTER THE COBBLED FLOOR. FLUORESCENT FLUIDS CHURN THROUGH TUBES THAT INTERTWINE FROM AMP TO AMP, KICK DRUM TO SNARE. PETRIE DISHES CULTURE FREE THOUGHT AND RHYTHM IN SWAYING GROWTHS OF MOSS. THE LIGHTS FLICKER AND A CANDLE IS BLOWN OUT.THE CALM BEFORE THE CREATURE ARISES. A BRIEF MOMENT OF LULL...THE THICK SMELL OF FOG IN THE AIR.

THEN THE LIGHTNING CRASHES-IGNITING A THATCHED ROOF BELOW TO DANCING FIRE. A CURDLING LAUGHTER IS AUDIBLE THROUGH THE CHAOS OF ARCHING ELECTRICAL CURRENTS. " MORE POWER!! " SCREAMS A VOICE ON THE EDGE OF LUNACY. ELECTRODES CONNECT AND PULSE LIFE WHERE THERE ONCE WAS NONE. "IT'S ALIVE!!"

AS SHRILLS OF "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE" AND "IT'S ON THE LOOSE" FILL THE STREETS... THE MONSTER PREPARES TO RAMPAGE.
