Oliver the Humanzee helps the Look Machine

Almost on a lark, I posted about Oliver the Humanzee quite some time ago.

Little did I know that he would be making us fans some day. For example, gillian writes us and tells us:

i googled humanzee today after watching the same documentary and your site came up. then i d/led all your mp3s and they are awesome, and you know what is more awesome is that you recorded them in boysetsfire's basement cause they are like my fourth favorite band ever.

Also, on our myspace site we got this comment:

Awesome songs! keep it up! I actually came across your music pretty strangely. I was googling humanzee and y'all popped up with some discussion that the humanzee, Oliver, is actually just a chimpanzee... Thanks. :)

And through google, we get more than 300 hits a day from people searching for - you guessed it - our friend oliver the humanzee.

You know, ever since I first saw the documentary about this creature, I was inspired to write a song called "The Ballad of the Humanzee" about not kind of being a part of two worlds, but not belonging in either one. I think I have to finish it so we can capitilize on this groundswell of Humanzee related fervor.
