The obscure, but legendary Amoebic Ensemble formed in 1992 and disbanded for the last time in 1999. The Amoebics' music was an enraged, jagged and angular variant on early American cartoon music, among other things. The band was led by Alec K. Redfearn, but members Steven Jobe, Jonathan Thomas and Matt Everett also contributed compositions to the band's repetoire. There were no guitar players or bass players, just strings, brass, accordion, mandolin/ bouzouki and 2 percussionists. The shows were swirling mathematical chaos with a lot of searing high-end, but there was enough humor and pathos for most audiences to find it entertaining. Since then, Alec K. Redfearn went on to form Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores, Jonathan Thomas records under the name Septimania, Matt Everett has embarked on a solo career and Steve Jobe has been writing a ballet....
