  • Biography Artists HIVE DWELLERS, THE Biography Photos Tour Press A biographical sketch: The streets of Olympia ring with that boot heels-on-cobblestone sound as the Hive Dwellers traverse the township east to west on way to their next musical adventure. Spawned in the late double-O decade by Calvin Johnson at the Dub Narcotic Studio, the Hive Dwellers is a band, a combo (as in combination) of disparate individuals who share a common love of rock’n’roll, library cards and railroad travel. The assorted cacophony of membership slides around, and currently includes Gabriel Will and Evan Hashi. Past members have included K.E. Sixx (The Vibrarians), Brian Weber (Dub Narcotic Sound System), Faustine Hudson (The Curious Mystery), Spencer Kelley (Wallpaper, Basemint), Karl Blau, Brett Lyman, Fred Thomas (City Center, Saturday Looks Good to Me), and Michelle Mae. When they emerge from the froth and frumble of their active bicycle-powered lives to make music, the Hive Dwellers emit a pelt of bright, shiny (NOW) with a love of pop music underground and it’s more vacuous mainstream distant cousins. Dance. Smile when you say that. Raw freedom dance. In 2009, the Hive Dwellers launched an expansive Pan-American tour seeing for themselves how it is to be a slave to the rhythm hive active; 2010 saw the release of “Get In” (KLP223). As the future unfolds into the conscious mind and continues to fade gently into the past, the Hive Dwellers are present tense, bearing witness to the maraca wilderness of the modern Basement State.
