Restiform Bodies are a comatose electric psych ghettotech r&b trio who all grew up together in the ice and rock of central New Hampshire. After receiving some attention for the bedroom-generated recording "oubliette", assembled and sold by hand for around $5, Dave, Matt and George left for Oakland to contribute their sound to the anticon massive. It was here the three began to approach to the restiform sound more thoughtfully and to define it as a group experiment, while also evolving individually as beat makers, knob twiddlers, rappers and singers. Passage (David), the final vocal tentacle of the anticon collective, is the primary restiform member responsible for the group's rap-sing volley. He has appeared on two anticon releases and his solo LP "The Forcefield Kids" will be available in 2004. The chemically enthused Telephone Jim Jesus (George), compulsively subjugates his gadgetry to render the token restiform car crash sine squall, while The Bomarr Monk (Matt) challenges and amplifies with often masterful traditional hip hop drum programming, underlined by his electro death-step alter ego and live analog drum brain accompaniment.
"Ultimatively, we feel things deeply and we want to wrench hearts, not worry or bore"
