Infinite Pi? I’m only, like, the biggest fan ever!
Well, Doug really started it out. He was playing out of his garage with Randy, and they decided they wanted to be called “Three And One Seventh”. And at first, it was all irrational, you know, two guys with a name like that, everyone was “Whoa! Crazy!” But after a while it started to get stupid. So they changed the name to “Golden Ratio”.
That’s when Ty came in on the drums. And they started going more acid house, you know, like the KLF. They met Ricky at a show, and he was playing keyboards for “Sixteenth Letter” out of Florida. Ricky had his own keyboards and Doug really liked that. So Ricky joined and they started recording as “Osmotic Pressure”.
But Randy started getting disillusioned with everything, because it wasn’t pure enough. So he took a job at a gas station and started studying classical styles. Everybody’s still friends, you know, no hard feelings. They hired Mike to take his place, and he can shred, even though us real fans don’t think he was ever as good as Randy. Man, Randy was awesome! Any real fans still hope he comes back for a reunion tour one day.
Anyway, with Mike, they became “Profit And The Inflation Rate” and they started getting attention. If it wasn’t for Ty’s overdose, that band would have probably gone on forever. I’ve got their twelve inch and they would have been huge on MTV.
Then, as we all know, Doug and Mike and Ricky formed “Infinite Pi”. And they’re still playin’ even now, like they can’t stop. Ricky even has that side project with Randy and Bill Laswell called “Twenty Two Sevenths”. But that’s jazz or something and no one cares.
Wear this shirt: if you don’t feel like repeating yourself.
Don’t wear this shirt: if your name is Ed Piper. Sorry, Ed. Come back tomorrow.
This shirt tells the world: “Pi r square? Whatever, lame-o. Go listen to some Jonas Brothers because Pi r rockin’!”
We call this color: Royal Blue? Not Today! Today It’s Rebellion Blue! Happy Fourth Of July!
