The Usual Suspects, guitarists Haroon Tahir and Phil Royer, percussionist Tom Haythorn and bassist Michael Hornburg were a serious and arty band who often played the music for plays and even backed a dance troupe for a few performances.

The early 80s were a good time to be making music in Portland.

B • something to the effect of wonder. I mean, here we are. here we all are. I mean … what’s happening? I mean … I

P • well … an intensity is at work in everyone. I’m pretty sure. It’s flux and reflux forming the significant and insignificant fluctuations of thought. and while each of us wants to claim a certain portion of this intensity for his or her very own, in point of fact, Bon, it belongs to no one and has neither beginning nor end. contrary to this more or less undulating element, if each of us forms a closed and apparently limited whole, it is precisely by virtue of a … momentary embrace, if you will, of certain traces of this intensity; that is, by a system of signs we call language. so far as the beginning or end of our own fluctuations are concerned we know nothing — even if the sign be the ME, the I, the SUBJECT of all our propositions! it is, thanks to this sign, however, that we constitute our selves as thinking, that a thought as such occurs to us, even though we are never quite sure that it is not someone else who is thinking and will continue to think in us.

B • but what is this OTHER that forms the outside in relation to the inside that we hold our selves to be?

P • well Bon, the sign ME in the everyday code of communication, so far as it verifies our various internal and external degrees of presence and absence … comes to us gratuitously (thank you Peter), all the while assuring a variable state of coherence within our selves and amongst our surroundings. be that as it may, what have you. Everything leads back to a single discourse, Bon, to fluctuations, of what have you, that correspond to the thought of every one and no one. Everything remains a function of the chaos out of which meaning is generated. boing! thus the thought of no one, but this intensity itself, finds its necessity in him or her who appropriates it, and comes to know his or her destiny in a lifetime of memory and … forgetfulness. I’m sorry, Bon, what was your question?
