Many moons ago, nestled atop a ragged precipice, a cell grew in a cesspool of embryonic fluid under the banner of a turbulent sky. The cell festered in its slimy domain, dividing and fusing with new cells, until eventually, a man grew out of the liquid that bound him. He reached for the sky and howled at the moon. At that exact moment, a stringed instrument slowly floated down from the heavens, landing squarely in his grimy paws. Lightning struck all around him, bathing him in a white light of epic glory. Without hesitation, he began to play dark lullabies as the storm unfolded around him. As the rage of the tempest increased, so did the intensity of his playing. Orbs of light began to spring from the wasteland below, rising out of the darkness until the entire landscape was illuminated. For thousands of years, the man played the instrument and kept the skies filled with light, until one day, he played no more. The hands of time passed him by. The man turned to dust, and the orbs vanished.
Hundreds of thousands of years later, another man by the name of Nikola Tesla was walking through a dense forest in the middle of a moonless night. A heavy fog covered the moist forest floor, marring the mysterious shapes that swirled in the darkness. As he slowly stumbled forward, he began to take notice of a soft glow emanating from some unknown location ahead. With a twist of the mustache and a quick polish of the monocle, he set out to investigate the source. The brightness began to increase as he got closer, casting large dancing silhouettes of the trees onto the fog around him. After what felt like an eternity, he finally came upon a clearing containing the source. The intensity of the light was too strong to warrant direct line of sight, but confronted with such a mystery, Tesla approached the source with great curiosity. Squinting, he reached out his hands and grabbed hold of an orb that was surprisingly quite cool to the touch. He could feel an energy from the orb that slowly crept down his arms and into his body. Simultaneously, the light began to dim from the object until it was no brighter than a cooling ember. He quickly became aware that he had control over the energy within the orb. He could dim the light or increase the light as he saw fit by channeling the energy within him back into the orb.
"It is a miracle," he thought. "How can such a light exist?"
He took his new found object back to his workshop and set out to try to understand its properties. Despite experiment after experiment, he could not unveil its secret. The object was impenetrable.
For the remainder of his life, Tesla strove to replicate the power he had found within the orb. He invented many astounding electrical devices based on his experiments with electromagnetism, including AC power, the Tesla coil, electric motors, wireless energy transfer, the first radios, and other amazing objects that we now take for granted, but he was never able to recreate the power within the orb.
For many years, no one knew what happened to Tesla's orb. In fact, many do not even acknowledge its existence.
In 2007, three young men were night hiking in the foothills of Boulder Colorado. It was a beautiful summer night with a full moon. The three men were taking it easy, playing some guitar, drinking whiskey, and telling stories, when suddenly they noticed a light coming down the path ahead of them. At first it seemed like nothing more than a flashlight, but as the light drew nearer, it became obvious that it was something much bigger and stronger. The men were unsure of the light, and initially thought they should leave before it arrived, but something kept them there, waiting. The light drew them in, captivating their attention, until finally it arrived at their location, illuminating the entire area like the light of day.
"What's the deal, man?" one of them said.
The ball of light was so intense that the men could not see who or what was holding it. After a short moment of no response, the light finally dimmed, revealing a man dressed in a black suit with a black top hat, adorned with a monocle over his eye, and a glorious mustache. In his hands was an orb that was now barely glowing. The men cautiously approached him until they were standing face to face. They stood silently for a moment, too stunned for words, when finally the monocle-stached man said,"Hold out your hands." The three young men slowly complied, and the man placed the orb in their hands. Almost immediately the orb illuminated, casting a blinding light that shot over the entire hill side. The men could not let go of the orb no matter how hard they tried. The light steadily increased, and the men could feel the power surging through their arms, when finally, the orb vaporized into a plasma ball of lightning. When their senses came back to them, they realized that the monocle stached man had, like the orb, disappeared - all except for his monocle, which lay at their feet.
For the next couple days not much was said between the three men. They tried to rationalize their experience, but ultimately, they could not push it out of their minds. Finally on the third day, they met at one of their houses. Without any discussion, they went to their instruments of choice: Josh Minor to the guitar, Arj Narayan to the drums, and David Accomazzo to the bass, and began to play music. From that moment on, they felt a power within them that transferred into their music. On that day they became a band. A band which they appropriately named: Monocle Stache.
Stone Deaf
Stone Deaf
Stone Deaf is a Heavy Rock band from Colorado featuring members Dust Chapin (Guitar, Lead Vocals), Cody Isaman (Bass, Vocals), Scott Anderson (Guitar, Keys) and Jarron French (Drums). Formed in late 2014 and recently signed to Black Bow Records (Jon Davis / Conan), the band's approach to music is a timeless fusion of melody and driving rhythms blending the rock vibes of The Hellacopters and Thin Lizzy with the sludgy thickness of Kyuss and Corrosion Of Conformity. Changing gears between chugging riffs, bluesy rock and laid back moments of heaviness topped with distant, last man standing vocals, Stone Deaf provides a soundtrack to your drive into oblivion, ancient aliens poking through the lonely a.m. waves, the light of the radio your only company in the vastness. A sonic palette to accompany the hope of lights in the distance under a dome of desert stars. Leave your watch behind, forget about time and soak in the sounds of the middle of nowhere.
