Another band named Eli Whitney. This one, like the band from San Jose is also defunct. But at least their story isn't as rife with tragedy. You can check out their music on their myspace page. Some of their music even seems inspired by the ever-unpopular "math-rock" other is much more lyrically driven and emotional, awww. Their band was torn apart when a character named "Ryan," selfishly decided to give up. Ryan could take a lesson from some other Eli Whitneys. Did Eli Whitney Debevoise II give up when the world plunged into financial crisis? Did Dr. Eli Whitney give up on his patients when the insurance company gave him a hard time? I don't gosh-darn think so!!! From all of us at The Unsung Eli Whitney Project, Ryan, we think you made a mistake!
Here is a video of one of the band member's younger brothers playing Halo to one of their sweet jams (it was probably Ryan's brother, because everyone seems to hate the video):
