No Mor Musik: No Mor Musik (ugEXPLODE)

This puzzling display of punk/jazz surrealism is masterminded by Nondor Nevai on drums and vocals, featuring Weasel Walter on bass and legendary journeyman Kenny Millions (aka Keshavan Maslak) on guitar and reeds, a sort of unholy fusion between extreme metal, bludgeoning noise rock, free jazz, black humor and true stream-of-consciousness improvisation.

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Among the best musicians on earth, Kenny Millions (sax, Guitar) is joined on fretless bass by Weasel Walter in a consummately PUNK-JAZZ asskick produced and percussed by Nandor Nevai who also adds a panoply of vocals from guttural to whispered. The spelling ov the name (and the aesthetic thereby implied) fuses VON LMO with SADISTIK EXEKUTION.

The personnel (Seth Putnam on guest vokills) on the first track alone certify this album as authentic neoclassical noisecore. In largo mode, it reads as some nasty militant no-wave plodding out from the same neighborhood as early SWANS, but with Maslak's pristine museumy saxoponik element that runs stylistik and contextually amok over WW's panfluent low-string-string-pickin'. NN's (audible and well-foley'd) pipe-hit-in-the-parking-lot sleaze factor and curiously disparate drum engineering (by WW) adds a hickory stain like a tipped-over-chewin'-tobaccy-saliva-spill on the Sym- ov Maslak and Walter's -Phonia...even the live material sans Maslak is releasable, and then just Walter and Maslak did another show proving they need no one but their lone pairing to exhibit NO MOR MUSIK to a degree ov severity that must be embarrassing to the approximal "candy-asses in So-ho". N

MM's alloy is not new, it is germane to the ilk ov PAINKILLER and similar; what it brings to the table is the presence ov mutually-exclusive extremes ov high (neoclassical) and low (noise-grind). "-Nándor Névai


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."
