Gilligan and the Professor started as most awesome things do, over diet coke and nachos one fateful saturday night. An idea was floated about the four of us working together to mask our collective wish to write poetry with music thereby making it altogether more lyrical and masculine in nature. Music being something that we've grown up on since the very beginning of when each of us started growing up and over the years its been one of our best companions. A few weeks later we had established our first rocking area in a basement giving us the title to one of our earliest song ideas "Basement Dreams". Little by little we became more and more attached to this idea of becoming something more than four guys in a room and started recording what we were doing for the eventual pipe dream goal of becoming massively famous and that those originals might be really cool to some musical historian who decided to write his thesis about the origins of our band. And to you my good sir, if that ever happens we would just like to thank you for your efforts and for the many cheese-stained pages of lyrics and notes that you might have had to sift through to understand what we really meant when we said "something of note which may or may not have induced somekind of major news uproar". And if that doesn't happen then we will have had fun making these songs anyway and will use these memories to tell exaggerated stories of our youth and awesomeness of when we were in a band in those 'early two thousands' as you will no doubt call the past in your future world with your space travel and your hover boots.
