WASTELAND JAZZ UNIT ( Cincinnati,Ohio)
Wasteland Jazz Unit has been bringing their brand of Borbetomagus fueled honkin' for over 10 years now and have been described as taking "free-jazz instrumentation (clarinet and sax) and using it to crack open the gates of hell by manipulating them using electronic signal processing and overloaded FX, unleashing skull-scraping eruptions of high-end reed abuse and extreme skronk that threaten to send blood geysering from your eyeballs."
NPR, after seeing "The Unit" play the New Atlantis Festival in 2010, explained that after clearing out half of what little audience there was through "screeching walls of feedback and distortion emanating from their stacks of amplifiers and reeds was enough to crust over your eyes in dried blood" that anyone remaining were "immediate converts."
DEVELOPER (Dayton, Ohio)
Developer is the cut-up noise project of Matthew Reis from Dayton, OH. Reis has been a staple of the Ohio noise scene since the early 00's with his group Yes, Collapse and solo project Teeth Collection. Reis is also the sole operator of Factotum Tapes. His current project, Developer, "takes Gysin's cut up techniques and musique concrete tactics" and pushes them to their furthest point.
LIGHT OF THE CROSS
