Members: Hart and Rob and Jake and Austin
Having been described as "Laconic, pointy, buoyant and unlikely," Donner Party of Five aim to portray, in sound, the taste of bones, leather, and eventual human flesh. The four members struggle, sometimes twice a week, to craft vibrations resembling the tragic ordeals of 1846-1847 and the imperialist doctrine of Manifest Destiny - to be unmistakably placed, somehow, on spinning plastic discs - one such collection is obtainable now, entitled "You Look Pretty," and others will surely be placed on other spinning discs hereafter.

David Raskin: This composer stated that the Donner Party of Five sounds like "a donkey with emotional problems."
