PETE SWANSON has long led a dual life as a noise musician (most famously in the late, lamented duo Yellow Swans) and a social worker helping the homeless and mentally ill. When he was asked last year if he found any connections between those pursuits, he recalled testing a virtual-reality machine that simulates schizophrenic hallucinations. To Swanson, the bombardment of illogical stimuli felt "psychedelic in the most terrible way"-- and similar to his music.
Icelandic musician and sound artist. SIGTRYGGUR BERG SIGMARSSON was born in Akureyri, Iceland. He studied sound art at the Fachhochschule in Hannover, Germany from 1998 to 2003. He has been a longtime member of the band Stilluppsteypa. For some time he has been releasing solo works. On the 17th he will be joined by Ultra Eczema's pimpdaddy Dennis Tyfus, who performs under the name VOM GRILL. The music is all based on his obsession for bacon and sausage with a Austrian punch.
