Artist Biographies:

"Weasel Walter (real name Walter Wyzowski) is a composer and instrumentalist who founded the band The Flying Luttenbachers in Chicago in 1991 with a current member of Cellular Chaos and Behold...The Arctopus. Over the years, The Flying Luttenbachers included noted Dylan Posa, and Michael Colligan, while creating a body of music drawing equally from no wave, death metal, gamelan, noise music, hardcore punk and modern classical. Walter moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, where he formed the latest of many Luttenbachers lineups, remaining on percussion with the addition of bassist Mike Green (Burmese), and virtuoso guitarist Ed Rodriguez (ex-Colossamite, Gorge Trio). Singular guitar phenomenon Mick Barr (Krallice, Octis, Orthrelm) joined the group in 2005. The Flying Luttenbachers ceased to operate in late 2007. On November 25, 2009, Weasel Walter announced that he was moving to New York City to join the band Behold... The Arctopus on drums and will be writing "new, more extreme material from scratch." He also formed Cellular Chaos with Marc Edwards (drummer), Admiral Grey and Ceci Moss."

"Four long movements in 99 tracks/79 minutes of detailed abstract madness from this prolific musical contrarian."-ugEXPLODE



"[...] Bandcamp liner notes for Curses make a demand: "PLAY LOUD." This is immediately followed by a suggestion: "Play in sequence or shuffle mode." It has four big movements - "Curse Against Humanity," 36 tracks; "Casting Destruction," 13 tracks; "Ode To The Death Of Enemies," 18 tracks; and "Cursed in Eternity," 32 tracks - that may be torn apart and leapt between. You may endlessly reconfigure the body. You may grind it up, and you may consume it. You may not know what organ you are tasting. It does start to taste the same.

At first, it binds me. I allow its movements to remain intact. 79 minutes of audiophilic cacophony: a new condition to pass through; a pile of noise, procedural and even; a universe that is both dense and empty. My car was wrecked the other day. Someone backed into it. I watched it roll downhill, turning across two lanes and slamming against a large curb. The result was a flat tire and severe damage in the undercarriage. Curses is coming through the speakers of my Enterprise loaner as I leave L.A. Traffic follows me North to desert hills. I can't move, and I can't excuse Curses.

[...] The second time I listen to Curses, I use Shuffle. I trace its pseudo-random algorithmic ordering by renaming each file as it plays. "Track58" becomes "Ode To The Death Of Enemies 09." "Track 37" into "Casting Destruction 01." I do this 99 times. Each entry is a recitation that begins the semi-chaotic reconstruction of the disfigured body of Curses. Without looking, it feels impossible to know from which movement of Curses a single segment has arisen. I imagine each track as a small unnamable fleshy organ indifferent to its place in a larger organism. With a single rope, I bind each piece. Shuffle makes a selection; I recite the name of the curse it has selected; with its new name, it leaps to the top of the list, and, suspended, it begins to form the superstructure of its lost body, now bound and held together with unlikely seams. In regress, I find curses just the same. I can't remember what I did to it or what it did to me. We get along just fine."- Ben Levinson, Tiny Mix Tapes
