Jeff's first band. "Will Cullen and I started our own little punk band called Maggot, which was me and Will on guitar, we'd both had guitars for Christmas, plus a guy named Ty Storms on vocals. He's now a conservative lawyer in New Orleans or something. So we were squawking on guitars while Ty was singing about masturbation and how much he hated his parents and running away from home and the kind of stuff you sing about when you're 13 years old. We just set out to be the most disgusting band that had ever existed." (Ptolemaic Terrascope article, September 1996)

"We couldn't really play chords or do anything; we'd just sort of scream and bang on shit." (Westword 1997)
