The Makers are a garage rock band from Spokane, Washington, formed in 1991, with releases on Estrus Records and Sub Pop Records. The band is currently signed with Kill Rock Stars Records.

For their first few albums, the members were credited with the surname "Maker", a la the Ramones. They became known for their anarchic performances, travelling between gigs in a 1965 Pontiac hearse. The band's first release was the 10" "Hip-Notic" on the Sympathy for the Record Industry label, the band moving to Estrus Records for their debut album, Howl! (1993). Further releases followed on Estrus, their last album on the label, Psychopathia Sexualis, introducing a retro-glam sound, the band members also adopting new pseudonyms, Michael Machine, Don Virgo, Jay Amerika, and Jamie Jack Frost. 2000 saw the band move to Sub Pop, releasing the Rock Star God album. They moved again in 2004, to Kill Rock Stars.

Meet Your Makers
Saturday, October 20, 2007

The following article was a cover story for the defunct Seattle music magazine The Rocket (1979-2000), published in 1998. The Makers had just made their final album, Psychopathia Sexualis, for Estrus Records and were just reaching the heights of their creative powers. The album would be a turning point for the band--no longer would they be engaging exclusively in the savagery of lo-fi garage rock. This effort was a far more sophisticated, albeit sleazy at times, romp through the rock landscape, noteworthy for its variety (music isn't just a weapon) and seductive, enduring sound. Almost 10 years later, Psychopathia Sexualis still occupies its own time and place. As for the Makers, they would go on to record four more albums, two for Sub Pop, two for Kill Rock Stars. Members are presently based in Portland and Spokane.

Rain pitter-patters on the windshield of Jack Endino's late-model Buick. Seattle producer Endino and three of the four Makers-vocalist Michael, guitarist Jamie and drummer Jay-huddle inside the parked car. The Delco stock stereo roars to life with the squealing fuzz of a new song, "Turning Up the Century," but the car stays idle. It's early February and the Makers are wrapping up their fifth album Psychopathia Sexualis in a Seattle studio, and they're checking a final mix of one of the album's 12 songs the way many bands do-in the car, on an average stereo.

Eyes stay fastened to the illuminated stereo. Endino, who's producing a decidedly un-grunge album, bobs his head to the rhythm. After auditioning "Turning Up the Century" three times, the Makers approve. "Sounds good," says Jamie as the four scuttle back to the studio, Private Radio, where the band has been holed-up for three straight days.

Back in the studio's sterile control room, where the actual mixing is being done, the Makers (except for Michael, who keeps a careful watch over Endino's shoulder) are aloof to what's going on and fight boredom with repeated cigarette breaks. Partly because the mixing process is boring and they've been hearing the same songs for weeks. Even so, a dramatic transition blares over the studio monitors: The Makers are spreading their ruffled feathers and are soaring beyond garage punk to some new rock plateau. The songs being mixed bear little resemblance to those to which the Spokane/ Seattle band converted thousands. Could the Makers be forsaking the faithful?

Endino cues another song-the soul-driving "Whiskey Dog Mind"-starts it, tweaks the knobs, starts it again, tweaks the knobs some more, rewinds it, starts it again. "Anybody feel like the vocals are too high?" asks Michael.

"Yeah, but they sound good like that," calls his older brother, bassist Don, seated comfortably on the couch.

At this point the album and the band's bold new direction nears completion. The Makers recorded Psychopathia Sexualis in four days-twice as long as usual-and are mixing it in another four-four times as long as usual. The diligence paid toward Psychopathia Sexualis is just one of the many signs that the 8-year-old Makers have grown up. The new album's songs exhibit sophistication, exploring a colorful spectrum of emotions other than the band's well-traveled rage. At one turn, Psychopathia froths volatilely with wailing guitars crashing into edgy and harsh vocals. At others, the band sounds patiently subdued and introspective amid lush, beautiful, softly sung ballads (calling to mind the Velvet Underground's most majestic of moments). Richening the textures is the inclusion of an organ, played by original Makers guitarist Tim (who quit the band in 1995) and the spoken word poetic ramblings, provided by Vic Mostly (Michael's and Don's eldest brother and the band's manager). From the time the first notes kick in until the last ones fade out, Psychopathia establishes itself as not just the band's most promising effort but a soul-music classic.

After finally penetrating the national press (garnering three stories last year in Alternative Press) in 1997 with a hot-headed shakedown, Hunger, the Makers have abandoned their proven, ready-made formula, wagering all their chips on an album which could boost their profile or leave them the object of scorn. But that's just like the Makers; they've never played to the critics or the fans. They've followed their own instincts-to do the contrary of what people want, to break the rules-thus enabling them the freedom to make such a daring escape with Psychopathia Sexualis.
