INSTAGON started in concept on Feb. 2 1993 in Fullerton, CA as a project started by members of Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY) at the TOPY Access point called BABYLON. (www.topy.net)... the core member of this project was LOB, a.k.a.

Coyote 139, a.k.a. Thee Lamb Ov Instagon, a.k.a. Thee Mystic Master ov Space & Time... and thus far, remains to be such. INSTAGON actually manifested and appeared later that year once in May at Lob's apartment behind Vinyl Solution, and then again for the LIVE debut at OLD WORLD in Huntington Beach, CA in June of 1993.

This show was billed as a live audio tribute to David Koresh and the Waco Massacre, and featured a band of over 13 performers, plus random members of the audience as well... and hence INSTAGON was born into the world... and audio deamon invoked by multiple participants, aware or not. INSTAGON is a term coined to describe the SPONTANEOUS FACTOR, the essence of Chaos Theory... everything that happens in this universe changes instantaneously upon its creation...

nothing stays the same... everything changes, and is gone in an instant... hence INSTAGON. INSTAGON has performed LIVE, unrehearsed, no practice, fresh on the stage...

just as much an experience for the BAND, as well as the AUDIENCE... for almost 500 shows in the past 16 years, and has NEVER been the same group of people, or ensemble on stage ever.. NEVER repeating... always changing...

once it happens it is GONE... yes, INSTAGON INSTAGON, in the early years of 1993 and 1994, was more or less a drum circle with electric instruments added at random... very tribal and hard to control... it was fun, and very chaotic...

sometimes too chaotic.. but we lived through it. . Once during a performance celebrating the death of Richard Nixon, at a venue called OUR HOUSE (rip) in Costa Mesa, CA...

someone lit the bathroom on fire... the Fire Department had to be called, hence ending our set early and causing the entire venue to be evacuated and closed... but that's just a sample of what it was like... lots of drums, lots of noise, and lots of chaos...

many things happening at once. Into 1995 and 1996, INSTAGON took more of a minimalist approach to our sound and began experimenting more with dynamics and NOISE... more ambient sets were performed.. still with the same group chaos dynamic...

but, quieter than with live drums. In late 1996 that changed and INSTAGON added the dynamic of the live drummer with a kit... thus began the birth of GARAGE JAZZ... a free-form improvisational approach to playing Psychedelic/Jam-based garage rock with an emphasis on "riffing" and musical interplay...

playing the lead with the bass guitar, LOB started to find it easy to direct the players to follow him into new territory and deep dimensions within the riff of the moment. INSTAGON continued on playing and changing on the concept of GARAGE JAZZ and Improvisational jam music through the rest of the 1990's and into the early 2000's. In 2002, Lob started booking shows for a bar in Huntington Beach called the LIQUID DEN (rip) and Instagon gained a regular gig. INSTAGON played the longest series of its career performing EVERY Sunday night at the Liquid Den for 18 months... The weekly gig gave Lob and Instagon the opportunity to REALLY explore the live band concept and performances became quite exciting and interactive...

attracting players like RIKK AGNEW (Adolescents), JIM KAA (The Crowd) and GREG GINN (Black Flag/GONE)... INSTAGON began to gather a name with the older punks... "It's like if Flipper were trying to be the Grateful Dead"... this was fun times and INSTAGON's reputation grew.

The OC WEEKLY named their "129 BEST Bands In Orange County History and INSTAGON was ranked ...13, above NO DOUBT, THE OFFSPRING, DICK DALE, even TSOL... and the legend of INSTAGON grew even more... In early 2005, LOB packed his bags and moved away from Orange County and the OC life... and headed north to SACRAMENTO, CA... and this is where INSTAGON lives today...

2005 found INSTAGON returning to the NOISE-based sounds of 10 years ago... and re-introducing them into the aspect of the GARAGE JAZZ band concept that has been so re-defined and polished over the last few years... Today INSTAGON invokes that subtle confusion of the unknown... You really don't have any idea what sort of performance you are about to see when you go to see INSTAGON perform live (which, if you hadn't noticed, is basically ALL that Instagon does is perform LIVE...

studio happenings are very very rare)... you may see a BAND play, with other people you recognize IN the band... you may see a noise performance, you may experience A cappella sound interaction... you may see people hitting metal with other pieces of metal...

you might hear grunts, screams, kazoos, saxophones, drums, guitars, keyboards, theremins, "juice" harps, or [enter other instrument here], but you for sure will hear the rumbling bass guitar ov Thee Lamb ov Instagon, LOB.
