Porcupine Tree/Opeth (also known as "MY BAND!!! by Steven Wilson") was a musical project created by a time lord who originally went by the name of Lord Boddington in the early 17th century, where he invented the question mark, the glottal stop, and the trachea. He changed his name to Steven Wilson after he realised there was a fox named after him.
Most people try to define Porcupine Tree, however this is highly irreverent because i took to many shots to the head and the taste of erasers is still in the 8th dimension. So hence forth there resides in the....................... 36563256452347238894 that life is but a season in the autumn known as porcupine. Yeah that pretty much means that they failed to find a reasonable place to migrate to due to the economy so they gave up and stopped existing. Why Cause they felt like it bro. Just face it why should they keep on living in a world where you go to school only to realize that porcupines will still remain porcupines and because society is still biased to ketchup.
After Lord Boddington acquired his new title of Steven Wilson in the late 1960's, he decided it was his duty to become the new Buddha. So he sat under the Bodhi tree for two days without food until he got a vision which he describes as this:
I was sitting on the lab (he meant tree) late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my tree from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash
He did the porcupine mash
The porcupine mash
It was a prickly smash
He did the mash
The French for cow is vache
He did the mash
He did the porcupine mash
~ Steven Wilson on seeing his band for the first time
Steven Wilson then saw Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers fall from the SKY and translated this event into the monster mash in order to warn everyone of this evil tree. Steven decided to sue them as he invented everything and was omniscient, the trial lasted one Porcupine Tree song (seven years) and resulted in Steven causing the Wall Street Crash.
Steven then decided to as a private joke between Steven and himself create a band under the name Porcupine Tree. He made the joke even funnier by pretending there were actual band members on the same page as Steven. Timothy Tadpole Jones died of unknown causes; he walked up the stairs and never EVER returned.
After this Steven decided to share his voice to the world the only way he could: he had to steal Elvis Costello's glasses so people would feel sorry for him. When he put these glasses on he had another vision: this vision told him he was the messiah and should start writing the music that he hears when he closes his eyes for it is the word of the creator.
Since then Steven Wilson would create songs in contradictory time paradoxes, to switch the songs are so stupidly long the average person would be like "WTF I've bin heer 4 lyk moor than 3 minutes and teh song is well gay!!1". This is because people just aren't clever enough for Steven Wilson. And if you try to be your head will explode (also known as the Syd Barrat effect where I've got a bike really means "I have a patriarchal society that wants to steal my Beatles albums away from me"). Porcupine Tree as a band gradually morphed as time went by as they started to care less and less about their band they got more and more conventionally progressive until you could actually tell them apart from Pink Floyd.
Court case 2: Lyrical profanities
Steven Wilson was sued in 2007 by Microsoft for advertising their X-Box as a god in the album Fear of a Blank Planet Without Steven Wilson. This court case resulted in Steven Wilson having to guitar battle Lemmy who was owned by Microsoft. The battle was so "br00tal" and totally made the judge say "WTF teh is a geetar battle wiv owt geetar herow teh gayzords ZOMG!!" This evidently caused the fire of London. Steven sued Lemmy for ten porcupine tree songs (10 million years) and this made Steven Wilson merge with Lemmy to create Steven Wilson II. Which was Steven Wilson only with a beard. Lemmy was just not strong enough to absorb Steven Wilson, he should had known Steven Wilson is Omnipotent, Omnibenevolent and Omniscient only without contradiction.
However, when Steven returned to his time it appeared that the fans (Steve Wilson and Wilson the Steven) were suing him for selling out on his Stevenwilsonia style. The evidence was shown by lyrical contents from his old and newer albums:
1. Radioactive Toy from On the Steven Life
I Run through forests on a hot Summer day because I am better than you!!
I'm trying to break down walls but my fist isn't strong enough!!
Give me the freedom to destroy you all!!
Give it to me, you radioactive toy
Later on in the following years he realized he was gay when he found himself in the preserve. He fell in love with an asian egg named Raymond Raymon Ruang. They made beautifully hideous babies which in turn had altered facial features;which had the most dishonor in the country, and bred the most severe case of cancer ever known to man. Eventually they were hunted down by the United Governement Committee (UGC) raped, stripped of resources, and forced into slavery by President Nixon in the 70's. The rest is well classified in international government files and will never be realeased to the public, but it is rumored they haven been turned into gorilla sex slaves. (seventy-four hour instrumental)
Taste the water from a stream of running death
Eat this apple, EAT IT NOW IMPERATIVE ATTACK!!! and cough a dying breath
Feel the sun burning through your black skin
Pour me into a hole, inform my next of kin
Run through graveyards on a dusty Winter day
Spit the dirt out and try to say...
(twenty-seven days instrumental)
Do you get my point now you ignoramus?
If not you clearly are stupid and you have no anus!!
Because this track clearly shows that euthanasia is wrong?
What do you mean you didn't notice that? Maybe this will explain!!!
(five year instrumental)
2. Title Track from Fear of a Blank Planet without Steven Wilson
X-Box is a god to me
A finger on the switch
My mother is a bitch
My father gave up ever trying to talk to me
I'm through with this pornography
The acting is lame
Amazon.com rated it high
But I've been castrated
Therefore arousal annulled
My life is so so so so hard
Whining is all I'm good at
Aaaaaaaaaaah a knife lol teh knife is not real lolzords!!!
My friend says he wants to die
He's in a band, they sound like Pearl Jam
Their clothes are all black
The music is crap
I guess I should try imitating them.
I am better than all of you after all!!
(ONLY 30 MINUTE INSTRUMENTAL!!!?)
The evidence showed that Steven had abandoned his old style for something a lot more modern to show that even though he has no age he still has the ability to confuse everyone by just abandoning his old style and picking a style he can not do. No longer was he insulting the crowds with his intellectual ability, and this pissed off the very little fans he had. This caused the end of the world and is all explained in A Hitchikers guide to the galaxy how Steven Wilson fixed the problem.
Steven Wilson - Does everything and is everything. Has the ability to play five hundred symphonies with one pair of limbs, also controls the bands: Opeth, Camel, Muse, Radiohead, Motorhead (after the polymerisation of Lemmy), Opeth II, Petho, No Man is a man without Steven Wilson, Bluefield, and The Bananna Splits.
Supposed other members that apparently contributed at some point
Steve Wilson - Temporarily existed when Steven decided to take the "n" off the end of his name in an attempt to sound more modern. He died in the black plague.
Stephen Wilson - Was created during the trial and error in a magazine article spelling Steven's name "Stephen". The magazine was smited by Steven's glasses with the spirit of Elvis Costello.
Richard Barbie - Played the triangle for the band for a little while until Steven realised that he was much better at making a crescendo with the triangle than he was. And therefore made him just stand in the background allowing him to pretend to play the keyboard, but all the time Steven is playing everything.
Mikael Åkerfeldt - Originally the lead singer of Opeth he and Steven Wilson are the same person. In another land there were aliens known as the Jeremy Kyle eaters also known as Oprahs when Steven Wilson discovered them he decided the best way to scare them off would be with long extended songs of shouting and chugging time shifting chords; but to avoid confusion to his perfection of Porcupine Tree he changed his name and hence created the alien of Mikael Åkerfeldt trying to save us from the Oprahs.
Robert Fripp - From an unsuccessful underground band known as King Crimson bumped into Steven Wilson in the Vietnam War. They shared stories with each other and Steven taught Robert how to play guitar. But Robert didn't understand it and was so frustrated that he asked Steven to play it for him. Hence forth everytime Robert Fripp played guitar. It was just Steven Wilson moving his eyebrows up and down. Robert Fripp experimented with this by forcibly moving Steven's eyebrows up and down. This made people believe Pluto was no longer a planet and therefore destroyed Pluto.
Dave the Bald Guy - Born to a nineteenth century dairy farmer (highly lacking in imagination) and a mute mother. Dave the Bald Guy, at the young age of thirty-two used to pluck the tails of his fathers cows. Amused by the low thumping sound created he continued on doing so, creating little tunes, such as 'Anarchy In The UK', 'I Will Survive' and 'Tubular Bells' (well known for it's use in the film, The Exorcist). One day Steven stumbled upon Dave the Bald Guy creating such wonders and decided to take him along on his travels. Though Dave the Bald Guy only played with Steven for a few short weeks (Steven soon taking over his role), Steven had grown rather fond of him. Because of this, Steven kept him on board giving him the ficticious role of 'Bass player' and a new name, Colin Edwin.
Gavin Harrison - When Steven realised Chris Maitland, the former drummer, was growing his hair so they would be longer than his, he had no choice but to kick him out to keep his status of long-hair-god. He had to find another puppet so he chose a random drummer named Harrison as nobody knew him. Little did he know, Harrison was the god of drums, who then rained his wrath upon Wilson's indulgence to add edge to the band.
The Famous Quotes of Steven Wilson
“...scraping microphones across the strings, feeding the resulting sound into overloaded reel to reel tape recorders and producing a primitive form of multi-track recording by bouncing between two cassette machines. Basically I just raped the system and defied nature. Aren't I clever?”
“ It was a bit of fun. But of course like anything that starts as a joke, people started to take it all seriously!”
“ I'm not really a big fan of trying to send messages within music. I always feel like the music should be like a mirror to what's happening in the world at any given time; you hold it up and let people make up their own minds about what they see reflected back at them.”
“ Sometimes you have to confront your own patterns and expectations of yourself and do away with things that you enjoy doing in order to move forward and keep evolving as a musician.”
