Very nice forum. Hopefully someone can answer a question for me. Many apologies if this question is threshed to death, but I am just curious -- where does the Elephant Six name come from?

as far as i know, "elephant 6" was just something that will, jeff, robert and the rest used to write on their homemade cassettes with music that they gave to eachother, in the very beginning

Thanks. I was wondering if it had anything to do with a tiny little psychedelic label from the 1960s called Elephant V.

Now there's a thought! What did Elephant V release?

The only album I know about is by a band called The Heavy Balloon. It's called 16 Tons.
