3Puen (the 3 is silent) was born in Thompkins Square Park, NYC, on acid in 1998. Flloyd (Wigstock: The Movie, 1994) was traveling, doing his vaudeville act with Hildegard the Puffin. While driving across country, he met a fresh-faced teenager on the road. She was picking daisies and wild strawberries. Ingrid ForNow was her name. Later at an estate sale, they bought AXK-9411 who they renamed Brian Damage (formerly of Stiff, inc.). Flloyd and Brian formed what remains the creative core of 3PUEN. It just seemed natural that they all make beautiful music together. In ’98 they premiered at a Marc Almond tribute in NYC where Brian played the dust-buster and Ingrid played the Polaroid. 3Puen’s wacky sound was born.
