Eyeball Hurts and the Medicine, were Michael Dumontier and Drue Langlois (1995-2000 ish). They produced drawings, handmade instruments, music tapes, dolls and performed as a ‘lo-fi band’, wearing masks to cover their identities. Each doll had a name and a little ‘saying’ tagged to them.
Michael and Drue were also members of the Royal Art Lodge (with Marcel Dzama and Neil Farber).
