Fantasy Mission Drive was among the less prolific tasks from the highly prolific Rob Crow, a singer/guitarist/songwriter most widely known for his participation in Heavy Veggie and Thingy. A indigenous of NORTH PARK, Crow formed Dream Mission Push with drummer Tim Semple and synthesizer participant Pea Hicks (also of Tit Wrench and Lucas & Close friends), who managed the bass lines. Crow was still dealing with his 1st group, the cult preferred Large Vegetable, when he produced his 1st recordings with Dream Mission Push circa 1995. This materials was in a far more traditional punk vein compared to the quirky, fractured pop of Weighty Vegetable, and three tracks’ worth made an appearance on Crow’s 1995 break up LP with electronica designer Reduced (which also presented 22 other short paths by Crow like a single artist). Heavy Veggie disbanded that yr, and Crow shifted to other endeavors. Included in this — albeit to a smaller level — was Dream Mission Push, which finished its 1st (in support of) official launch in 1997; Circus Atari was a 7″ EP released by Vinyl Marketing communications. That same yr, nevertheless, Crow and Hicks (right now spelling his name “Hix”) embarked on the side project known as Optiganally Yours, a kitschy pop clothing centered throughout the Optigan, a house organ in the ’60s. Both of their albums (from 1997 and 2000) had been received well in the indie pop community. Furthermore to Optiganally Yours, Crow also produced some single recordings and caused Thingy, Snotnose, Physics, and Pinback.
