Prior to becoming one of the most significant acts on the DFA label, John Maclean was a member of Sub Pop band Six Finger Satellite. Initially, Six Finger Satellite fit in with the remainder of the Sub Pop roster, but after one EP, they took a sharp turn into herky-jerky post-punk that was inspired by Devo, Big Black, and Suicide instead of Black Sabbath, The Stooges, and Led Zeppelin.
By the time they went to record their final album, 1998's Law Of Ruins, krautrock began to play a major role, and so did LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, who produced, engineered, and mixed the sessions, in addition to running the band's live sound. When the band broke up, Maclean's aggravated emotional state and long-term drug addiction took him low enough to provoke a move from New York to New Hampshire and a drastic change in lifestyle.
