In grade school, Reed Stratford & Tyler Mason
met in the sandbox behind Reed's brick house
in Sierra Hills, Kansas, taking an immediate
disliking to each other, not sharing their toys.
Tyler even hit Reed in the forehead with a flying
hammer there (unintentionally, so he claims.)
That rivalry continued into piano class,
with each boy ridiculing the other's ineptitude,
vying for the attention of the girls in the class.
In high school, they hit upon the idea of
multiplying that attention by combining their
energies by playing music together.
So they formed a folk group.
Finding that only "hippie"-type girls with
braided arm-pit hairs & body oils that smelled
like a rotting water buffalo carcass were
attracted to folk groups & wanting to increase
their chances with a higher class of female,
they switched to classical music.
They soon discovered that classical music
interested none of the type of girls in which
they were interested. By default & with
some trepidation, they settled on rock music.
The attention factor increased exponentially.
Several years & 157 band names later,
they stumbled into Dixon Carta in college,
kicking a hole in his snare. To avert impending
legal action or fisticuffs, they invited Dixon to
replace their drum machine on a few numbers.
With the addition of another student, Justin Hart,
three months later, the foundation of what was to
become Brutal2ThEar was complete.
