Matt Talbott has been involved with Hum since the beginning, in 1989. Prior to Hum, he had been in the band We Ate Plato, featuring Honcho Overload guitarist KC Driscoll.
Circa 1989-1990, Matt was working in a cafe called Treno's when he met up with various members of Hum. During Hum's earlier days, Matt was also the bass player for the band Honcho Overload which also featured Jeff Dimpsey on guitar. With his own basement recording studio, Matt has helped record/produce bands such as Castor and Sarge. He also made a guest appearance on the Space Ghost Coast To Coast television show. Some of Matt's (and Hum's) favorite bands are Dinosaur Jr., Failure, Bitch Magnet, The Flaming Lips, Rush, The Police, R.E.M., Love Cup, and My Bloody Valentine.
Currently he is in the band Centaur, where he plays guitar and sings with Derek Niedringhaus (bass) of Castor, Sarge, National Skyline; and Jim Kelly (drums) of 16 Tons, and Love Cup. Centaur's debut album "In Streams" can be found at Parasol and many other online record stores, as well as in many indie record retailers. Centaur's sound is a bit different than Hum, its methods are more simple most of the time but don't be afraid...you'll still hear Matt's trademark vocals along with a swirly wall of sound.
