Michael Ferrier found his first fifteen minutes of fame after winning the 1974 Four Square (Playground Division) Championship. From there he descended into the shady world of vegetative alchemy, eventually coming up with the coveted formula for orange cabbage. Much of Michael's time in the intervening decade was unfortunately shaped by the well-publicized bikini scandal, none more be said here of that. You know who you are. Music found Michael desperate and alone at the end of the seventies, living off orange cabbage residuals and sterno. Electropolis has saved his life.
Brian Roessler took his original inspiration from the fantastical world of insects. Just listen to the word “thorax,” and you will begin to know why. Thorax. After an unsuccessful bid at introducing less costly, insect-spun cotton candy as an option at carnivals and school fundraisers worldwide, he landed on his feet in the multi-faceted universe of high-design tongue depressors. Feeling that this was, well, too depressing, Brian finally blossomed into the heel-and-calf model he is today.
Steve was born to poor immigrants in the 1930s, and seemed destined to follow in the family business of hand-crafted nativity scenes. But Steve was determined to break the rules. With a paper route and a lunch-ticket-racketeering scheme, he scraped together just enough money to put himself through refrigerator repair school. There he picked up the tricks to fashion a cryogenic freezer and froze himself until the year 2000. When he emerged, he took Electropolis by storm. He swept Electropolis City Council elections with his old-time liberal values and a platform of jobs and Fritos for all men.
After Kelly was presented with the Yamaha E.O.F. 1981 Y.D.- 1 Best Improvisation trophy, his career would never be the same. Trading in his reading glasses for a hand held Electronic Quarterback by Coleco, Kelly left to join the Circus. With multiple blisters on his thumbs, a prosthetic pelvis and one badly injured elephant, he was forced to leave the big top for a life of crime. The phone cops never quite caught up with the renegade buffalo. Toodle-oo Caribou! Many years later, this hero of the underworld would loose his ability to use the force and fall hopelessly in love with his arch nemesis; perfect woman.
