"Deerhoof has been making singles where we give instrumental tracks from our records to singers we like. We have no idea what they'll sing. On tour, we were having a post-show ice cream at Mashti Malones in LA and one of Marc Ribot's records came on and we realized we have to get him to do one. Every Deerhoof member had already had their favorite from Ribot's discography since before we ever met each other. Our connection was Ches Smith who was the singer in our favorite hardcore band but moonlighted as a fusion drummer. We toured with Ches/Shahzad/Ribot's band Ceramic Dog and found their sense of humor to be unacceptable. Then i produced Ceramic Dog's next record. and after that we sent Ribot the instrumental track for one of our songs and before long I had the single you are looking at except that I had to mix it first lest it sound unmixed. Long live Marc Ribot."-Greg Saunier, Deerhoof,,
"Ches was tight with the Deerhoof people from when he lived on the West Coast, and he and Shahzad turned me on to some of their CD's. I thought - wow, these people are really crazy (plus they not only dig a lot of the same 70's - 80's no wave stuff I like, they've actually taken it several steps further). Then we did some W coast tour dates together - and it all turned out to be true: they were crazy and great. We dug it so much, we asked Greg to produce our last CD. Long live Deerhoof!"-Marc Ribot
• Show Bio for Ches Smith
"Born in San Diego, CA and raised in Sacramento, Ches Smith came up in a scene of punks and metal musicians who were listening to and experimenting with jazz and free improvisation. He studied philosophy at the University of Oregon before relocating to the San Francisco Bay area in 1995. After a few years of playing with obscure bands and intensive study with drummer / educator Peter Magadini, he enrolled in the graduate program at Mills College in Oakland at the suggestion of percussionist William Winant. There he studied percussion, improvisation, and composition with Winant, Fred Frith, Pauline Oliveros and Alvin Curran. One of Winant's first "assignments" for Ches was to sub in his touring gig at the time, Mr. Bungle (here he met bassist / composer Trevor Dunn who would later hire him for the second incarnation of his Trio-Convulsant). During his time at Mills, Ches co-founded two bands: Theory of Ruin (with Fudgetunnel / Nailbomb frontman Alex Newport), and Good for Cows (w/ Nels Cline Singers' Devin Hoff). He currently performs and records with Xiu Xiu, and Secret Chiefs 3. He has also performed with Ben Goldberg, Annie Gosfield, Wadada Leo Smith, John Tchicai, Fred Frith, and Trevor Dunn. In addition to Ceramic Dog, he also leads his two of his own projects, Congs for Brums and These Arches. He currently spends his time between Los Angeles, San Francisco and Brooklyn."-Ches Smith Website (http://www.chessmith.com/)
