Cellular Chaos hit town today, town being London, today being Thursday June 1st and the exact place being Hackney. We’ve told you about Cellular Chaos before of course, one of Weasel Walter’s bands, Weasel is very serious when it comes to pushing the musical envelope, the Flying Luttenbachers of course, if you don’t know you really needs, it doesn’t get much better than the Luttenbachers, we’re not here ot go on about those Flying Luttenbachers again today though, or any of his other bands, for today is about the excellent thing that is Cellular Chaos. Cellular Chaos are more than just Weasel Walther though. I trust you’ve been paying attention to our postings concerning Admiral Grey, she’s brilliant, her bands are brilliant, and then there’s… hang on, here’s what the promoters of tonight’s show has to say
“Known for his work in The Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX, Burmese and his current role as Lydia Lunch’s guitarist and musical director, Weasel Walter initially founded Cellular Chaos as a San Francisco Bay area improvisational instrumental combo, but with a move to Brooklyn, the name was repurposed to christen an entirely new act. The band headed in an equally intense and cathartic direction, but became more song-oriented and melodically complex with the addition and collaboration with frontwoman Admiral Grey, renowned New York City writer, singer actress and performance artist. Grey’s surreal narratives of trauma, apocalypse, and abuse weave furiously through angular, masterfully expressed arrangements. With Walter and Grey at the helm, the band has had many virtuosic musicians in its roster, most recently utilizing the talents of Rad Chaines (The Simple Pleasure, Amanda Palmer’s Grand Theft Orchestra) on percussion and electronic drums and bass, creating a propulsive modern mashup sound which has taken their live spectacle to a fresh hyper dynamic level”.
