FACT: Gordon Gigantic is the name of the dismissed fire chief from Detroit's firefighters who spoke out
about the handling of devils night and the fires that ensued October 1994. The department let
Gordon go by Tony Archer's surrogate uncle Dennis Archer - former mayor of Detroit.



This short-lived outfit was born out of Miller's discontent with LARYNX ZILLION'S NOVELTY SHOP most specifically with
it's lack of commercial success. No surprise there. But sadly, after Gordon Gigantic lost their bass player early on
and struggling to continue with
2nd guitarist Jeffrey Steiger, they soon folded without a shadow of a doubt.
The trio 
only gigged twice but managed to record a reasonable 5-song cassette which was awarded
one of 10 'Best Music Releases in 1995' by Ann Arbor's local rag AGENDA.

“...if there is any one greatest injustice on the local music scene, it’s the fact that Laurence Miller, the guiding force
behind this five-tune release, isn’t world famous 
by now. From the original lineup of Destroy All Monsters
to his other-planet ravings of Larynx Zillion’s Novelty Shop, 
Miller has proven to be another
one-of-a-kind performer of 
world-class talents and brains...”
