I Am Spoonbender (a name with exoteric meanings) was formed in San Francisco
by Pansy Division's drummer Dustin Donaldson with
Cub's guitarist Robynn Iwata
and keyboardist Brian Jackson.
Sender/ Receiver (Gold Standard Labs, 1998) revealed one of the most
original and brilliant trios of new rock, who formidable style quotes
Brian Eno's retro-chic synth-pop (Stopwatch Static),
Can's austere chamber rock (Reality Dealer, Replaced By Toys),
This Heat's progressive industrial music
(Slow Metal Fires, What Does The Water Think),
with occasional forays into post-rock (Parenthetical) and
digital micromusic (Mr Knife Miss Fork).
Adding turntablist Marc Kate and replacing Jackson with keyboardist Chad Amory,
I Am Spoonbender released the three-sided EP
Teletwin (Little Army, 1999).
The three-song EP
Shown Actual Size (Gold Standards, 2003) is one of their best works ever.
Spoonbender 1.1.1 is a drum-less vocals-less side project that debuted with the
abstract dissonant stream of consciousness of
Stereo Telepathy Academy - Live In San Francisco 2004 (Seismic Seance, 2005), a bit ruined by the overdubbed vocals, later remixed in studio as
Stereo Telepathy Academy - 2nd Edition (Helen Scarsdale Agency, 2006).
