8 LEGS: The Most Underground Chicago Band Ever.

8 Legs did not perform live, except for one another. Rehearsing was something meant for other bands who aspired for other things. 8 Legs was founded by (L-R) Jenny Koo, Scott Hasler, Glenn Swan and Rob Sandmaier, who would swap instruments periodically for a stew of spontaneous alt-wave lo-fi synth-prog-folk-rock. Depending on who was in the studio [aka The Queen's Hutch], tracks were released under aliases like Balls!, iNFANT iSLAND, Princess F*Steak, Grover Force, The Poo C's, Optional Music and 10 Dogs. Along with their friend and frequent collaborator Doug (not pictured), the collective would record many hours of material which would occasionally be polished and brought to the surface for further inspection. There were also times Glenn would bring the master tapes back to his own studio for additional (blasphemous) remixing, rearranging and other production elements. After all this time, the tentacles have released their tight grip on the treasure chest, allowing a few pieces of rare unpolished gold to spill.      :: 8 LEGS ::
