Product Notes

Except from 'Cracking Eggbot's shell' by Chris Busby Who, or what, is Eggbot? At first glance, this appears to be an easy question. Eggbot is a local musician who plays a Farfisa organ and, occasionally, a trumpet, while singing quirky pop songs heavily treated by effects pedals. Slightly complicating things, but still within the realm of reason, is the fact that Eggbot is also the name of Eggbot's band, which currently consists of Eggbot and drummer Tristan Gallagher. The pair have played regular gigs at Stone Coast Brewing Co. And the recently defunct Better End in Portland, and can be seen at a host of other local venues from time to time. When one digs deeper into the question, however, things get more complicated, even downright strange. For instance, what is Eggbot's real name? According to Eggbot, it's Carl LaFong, but when pressed he admits that moniker is borrowed from a film. According to Eggbot's wife, Gloria Nightingale, Eggbot was not Eggbot when she met him eight years ago, although, 'at that time Eggbot was in him, but had not come out yet. 'I just called him Michael because he looked like a Michael,' said Nightingale. 'I don't know if that's his name. It's just like every woman in Portland is a Jen -- every man is a Michael.' According to Nightingale, Eggbot signs cards and letters to his family as Eggbot. According to Eggbot himself, his parents are beginning to accept him as such, although, 'It's hard for them to come to grips with me changing the family name, being the last descent of the clan.' He refused to specify which clan.
