Matching the wits and pop experimentalism of Ian Masters (Pale Saints) and Chris Trout (AC Temple), Spoonfed Hybrid was birthed in 1993. Much of why Masters left his prior outfit had to do with the limitations of a pop band, and through his association with Trout, he was able play around with sound and structure without worrying about label pressures or whether or not a drummer would mind not playing on half of a full-length record. Released through 4AD offshoot Guernica the same year Masters and Trout paired up, Spoonfed Hybrid found a small audience through Pale Saints fans and those who enjoy a little more experimentation in their music. Hibernation Shock followed two years later on Farrago, featuring an amazing lead track with burbling electronics, but sounding otherwise a bit tossed off. Masters also hopped in the eccentric bedsack with Warren Defever for the gorgeous ESP Summer in 1995 and also continued to run his puzzling Friendly Science Enregisterments imprint.
