XMURMUR3 ( Pronounced 'Murmur' The X3 is silent & an LA Gang thing, the band also served as an art collective & they were quite fond of & involved with graffiti culture in Los Angeles at the time. M is the 13th letter of the alphabet & popular with gangs because to them it stands for 'Mafia'. ) was a band in Los Angeles active from 2005-08. They played a decent amount of shows but never released a proper record. They were quite ahead of their time sound wise. Always experimenting, members would perform with their backs to the crowd & often rotate instruments on stage. They never really stuck to one style or sound.
This album is unmixed. Modell was in LA on tour running sound for a band & he brought one of their recording rigs over to the Hollywood Loop Hole. The band later got in a bad accident on the road & Modell lost contact with them & our masters. This is what remains of XMURMUR3 & stands as proof that they existed.
