Eve 6 was an alternative rock band from Southern California, who disbanded in 2004. Their musical genre has often been classified as punk or post-grunge. The band formed in 1995 in La Crescenta, California as Eleventeen; the name Eve 6 was only adopted later, after they already had a recording contract and were looking for a replacement drummer. Tony Fagenson, who auditioned while attending the University of Southern California, was an X-Files fan. After seeing the episode “Eve”, which featured genetically engineered characters known as “Eves,” he got the name from the character called Eve #6 who made a remark about biting a guard’s eyeball, which Fagenson thought merited “Eve 6” as a band name.

Eve 6’s basic rock trio (guitar/bass/drums) sound is augmented on their later studio recordings with many interesting studio techniques. For example, “Bang” (from Horrorscope) culminates in a section constructed entirely from repeated, overdubbed layers. Eve 6 also made liberal use of overdubbed vocals and other studio polish, such as the vocoded filigree directly preceding the breakdown section of “On The Roof” (from Horrorscope). The songs themselves generally conform to the late 90’s pop-punk aesthetic, and can be roughly divided into four different categories: the sugary-sweet bubblegum pop of “Rescue” and “Promise” (from Horrorscope), the punk of “Hokis” (from It’s All in Your Head) and “Superhero Girl” (from Eve 6), ballads, such as “Hey Montana” (from It’s All in Your Head) and “Here’s to the Night” (from Horrorscope), and anthems (characterized by beginning almost inaudibly, with sparse instrumentation, and ending climactically) such as “Arch Drive Goodbye” (from It’s All in Your Head).

Eve 6 was perhaps best known for its lyrics, however, which feature vivid imagery and inventive wordplay: two of the group’s hits, “Inside Out” (from their self-titled album) and “Promise” (from Horrorscope), are good examples of this style. The nostalgic ballad, “Here’s to the Night” is probably the most notable; it is characterized by a pleasant change in tempo and style from the band’s other songs. While the song was written about a one night stand, for many teenagers it was misinterpreted as a song about the closing of an era (specifically of high school), and was chosen by many graduating senior classes to be their “class song.”

Breakup – Poor sales of It’s All In Your Head due to lack of promotion on the labels part (192,000 Units Moved) resulted in Eve 6’s release from their record contract with RCA. Subsequently announcing their breakup, Eve 6 played their final show together on the night of July 15, 2004 in front of a large crowd under the famous Gateway Arch in St. Louis. However, Max and Tony have reunited to form a new band currently called Sugi Tap. They have already recorded some demos and plan to play shows throughout the California region during the summer of 2006. Jon Siebels is currently in a band called Monsters Are Waiting.

AmericanTown’s Heroes: Young Athletes Don’t Let Diabetes Get Them Down

Living with diabetes is a challenge for anyone—young or old, but when children are involved there is always the concern for their future health and safety. Luckily, so much is known these days about how to manage diabetes and diet and exercise are both important to creating a healthy lifestyle.

Aidan Sarmiere and Kyle Rosa are both living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and are both on the Brookfield Barracuda 10U baseball team that recently won the Cal Ripken Connecticut State Tournament.

Thanks to the talent and determination of these boys and their team mates, they progressed to the New England Regional Tournament where they went undefeated before moving on to represent the New England region in the 2015 Cal Ripken 10U World Series in Jonesboro, Arkansas! They are the first team from Brookfield to ever accomplish this.

Both Aidan and Kyle were key contributors to the team’s success in the tournaments. Aidan plays 3rd base and Kyle is the catcher and they both inspire the other players on their team and young athletes who are dealing with the challenges of trying to live a normal, active life while managing T1D.

Do you know someone who has triumphed over a disease or condition and is inspiring others to to do the same? Nominate them for next week’s AmericanTown’s Heroes.

Earth Talk: How are environmentalists putting drones to use to help further their causes?

Dear EarthTalk: How are environmentalists putting drones to use to help further their causes?   — J.M.

Conservationists are utilizing drone or “unmanned aerial systems” (UAS) technology to gather highly detailed imagery and other environmental data that is traditionally challenging to obtain. Wildlife biologist John Takekawa and his team at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Western Ecological Research Center (WERC), for example, are using drones to obtain aerial images of San Francisco Bay marshlands.

 

“It’s very hard to get some of the data sets in some of these areas that are remote or hard to reach in the marshes,” Takekawa explains. “If you have something that can fly over and get sensors that can report back to your computer, that’s what we’re looking for in exploring these types of technologies.”

 

Dr. Amy Woodget, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Worcester in the UK, uses her small Draganflyer X6 UAS to collect high-resolution imagery of river channels. The images map the physical conditions within the rivers, including the channel topography, water depth and surface flow patterns, data all crucial for gauging river health and habitat conditions essential to the survival of local wildlife.

 

“The results obtained using UAS technologies provide unprecedented levels of detail concerning these physical river habitat parameters, with high levels of accuracy and precision,” Woodget says.

 

Drones are also helping preserve the Peruvian Amazon forest, where illegal gold mining and logging has cleared mahogany, Spanish cedar and other old-growth trees. Carlos Castaneda, coordinator of the Amazon Basin Conservation Association’s Los Amigos Conservation Concession, monitors the 550-square-mile Los Amigos reserve in southeastern Peru, home to a large diversity of plant and animal species, including palm swamps, bamboo thickets, giant otters, harpy eagles, spider monkeys and jaguars. Small drones weighing less than five pounds enable detection of any deforestation within the area.

 

Considering that more and more drones are being launched for conservation research, Linda Rothschild, an evolutionary biologist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, was concerned when she found out that UAVs sometimes get lost in coral reefs or other sensitive habitats. “As I started to hear about this, I thought, ‘Well, wouldn’t it be useful if the UAV was biodegradable, so if it crashed somewhere that was sensitive, it wouldn’t matter if it dissolved,’” Rothschild says.

 

So Rothschild created a biodegradable drone with a team of students in the 2014 International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. The team’s prototype took its first short flight in November 2014 at the iGEM competition in Boston. The drone, which resembles a cardboard cup holder, is made primarily of mycelium grown by New York-based Ecovative Design. The team grew cellulose leather-like sheets to coat the mycelium body and then covered the sheets with proteins sourced from the saliva of paper wasps—a water resistant material that the insects use to cover their nests. The biodegradable drone body is certainly a step forward, though the drone still uses a standard battery, motor and propellers.

 

Rothschild’s dream is to make a UAV where every part is made with something biodegradable, but for now, she says, “realistically, this is going to be much more of a hybrid vehicle.”
