This was the year I was going to start documenting shows after playing out since 1994! I had some cool ones lined up, but everything is cancelled, understandably. So the Yellow House gig above might be the only show I play in 2020, at least in the flesh.

Check back here for updates on upcoming shows and releases, as I anticipate at least some cool virtual gigs.

I play noise. My music is expressionistic–it feels like abstracted punk to me, but I don’t know if anyone else would describe it that way. I use vocals, pedals, synthesizer, tape and guitar for my solo work, and I often collaborate with other people, especially the band Shadows, Murderous Vision and Ann B Klorox. My band, Dead Peasant Insurance (DPI) was formed in 2004 with my brother Wyatt and our friend Ryan—we’ve played with many great drummers over the years. I also played with hardcore/noise band Fascist Insect for a few years.

I like stuff that’s both messy and fuzzy but also emotionally intense with bold melodies and rhythms breaking through abstraction and surprising overlaps, like the musical equivalent of the range between fauvist and abstract expressionist paintings. 

For me, performing is ritual and recording and producing releases is like painting that is experienced fluidly through time. The same source moves me when I write, perform, edit releases, paint, etc. Hazy blue images, loving red stabs. 

DPI many years ago at Bela Dubby with art by Jim Mazorkis, work that found its way into my novel Beasts and Creature.
DPI at Yellow House, August 2019
