Bio: Fruit of The Legion of Loom came about when we played in our old practice space next to the Jaguar brothers’ shit hole of a house. They were these four total douche-bags that would hang out on their porch drinking Sparks all day in nothing but their briefs (if I remember right their names were Co... See Full Bio

Taking a break from shows this month. See you in May.


“It took 10 years for Portland's own Fruit of the Legion of Loom to release its first album, but Humandatory Genocide is now an actual thing, and one that will surely burn up the hit parade. After all, nothing says chart success like "instrumental concept album," and Legion of Loom's zooming, gonzo shredding is the sort of thing that makes music writers type words that wouldn't otherwise exist in the English language, like "frenetic" and "skronk." There are three acts to the sci-fi themed Humandatory Genocide, and the story itself is all laid out inside the CD booklet, although I doubt it will help much to get your bearings. Instead, sit back and let the instru-mental (sorry, another bullshit music critic tactic) trio's mathy, metal-tinged, progressive delirium work you over.”

Q: Legion of Loom, How long does it usually take you to write and record one song? Would you be interested in doing a short interview?
A: Hello whoever you are and thanks for the question. Twice a week we play for three hours. Normally these days a song will take anywhere from ten to sixteen practices including a measure by measure tune up we call tool shedding. I can't really remember how long the songs on Reverbnation took as they we're written around fifteen years ago. As far as recording, we recorded them twelve years ago and just released them last April. We're now making an effort to record the rest of our catalog, within the next two years, which should give us another two or three albums. This was a side band for many years which is why we never focused on the recording side much. As far as doing a short interview ask away to your hearts content. It would be our pleasure. Thanks and have a great weekend. Take care...Fruit
