Observers Observing Observables
The 3-O band consisted primarily of Dave Fulton and
Brad Garton (hey, that's me!) goofing around at
recording studio, drafting various other individuals into our nefarious
audio schemes. Mike Behnke wrote and performed many of the 3-O
lyrics. His brother David was the featured lyricist/performer
on Expiration Date. Occasionally we would just grab a newspaper
and read an article for the text (Shah Song).
The title of the band came from the title of a poem Dave and I saw
in Physics Today magazine, penned ostensibly by a rhapsodic
physicist reflecting upon wood. The poem in its entirety forms the
call-and-response lyrics for Pirate's in the Congregation.

happy with the java version of the 3-O theme poem included on this
