Powered by Audioscrobbler™1980 - Adam Jeffers is the first baby to be born at Fredonia Regional Hospital in Fredonia, KS with lobster claws.

1981-1988 - Television and action figures.

1989 - Operation to replace lobster claws with human hands is successful. Days later, young Adam takes parents' Montgomery Ward console turntable to local DJ competition; places third.

1990 - For the sum total of $5.50, Adam acquires his first computer from a school district auction: a gently-used Atari 800, complete with 5-inch floppy disk of "Ghetto Blaster" game. His life is changed irrevocably.

1991 - Adam's mother joins Columbia House Record & Tape Club, allows him to pick out one of the free introductory selections for his very own. Adam is torn between a cassette copy of Ice Cube's "Death Certificate" and a 12" record of "People Are Still Having Sex" by LaTour. Fortunately, he talks his mother into letting him have both. His life is changed irrevocably.

1992-1995 - Adam experiments with sound collage, starting first with cassette tape and eventually moving onto computer as a medium. During this period, his grades start slipping as the doodles of a skullfaced man wearing a suit increase in the margins of his school notebooks.

1996-1998 - Having become more interested in structured composition, Adam forms a four-piece performing group called Superargo, which utilizes traditional rock band instrumentation. After a handful of well-received, if not completely baffling, live shows, the band is dismantled.

1999-2001 - Adam stays up all night for three years in a row teaching himself how to make electronic music. He sleeps through the entirety of December 2001; has lengthy dream outlining thirty days in the life of a skullfaced man. His life is changed irrevocably.

2002 - Adam moves to Lawrence, KS; plays first solo show as Superargo. Slide projector breaks, lights are turned off midway through the set, universally panned as "boring." In the following months, Adam meets The Skullface in the flesh and films him doing his everyday tasks for video segments to be shown during the Superargo live shows.

2003 - In an effort to make up for a broken video projector, Adam invites The Skullface to appear in person as a fixed installment of the Superargo performances. Tensions arise between the two when The Skullface has Superargo kidnapped at the end of their first show together, the motive for which is still unknown. In July, Adam releases his debut album, imaginatively titled "Superargo."

2004 - Adam and The Skullface have put aside their early differences and have become great friends and creative partners. Their live show flourishes as a result. The year is spent improving upon the performance and field-testing it with a small U.S. tour. Work begins on a second Superargo album entitled "Clap/Collapse." On Christmas Eve, the right side of Adam's skull is crushed to fragments outside of a Denny's in Overland Park, KS in a random and senseless attack.

2005 - Adam's skull is reconstructed using steel plates (read: Vaderization) and he physically ages ten years in the process. After healing, he puts aside work on the now-mostly-completed follow-up album and instead begins work on an EP called "In Concern For Health And Wellness," as well as a three-song single ("The Backspace Statement"). Adam and The Skullface begin retooling their live set in preparation for the release of these two discs, as well as another tour.
