Murder Murder is a Bay Area-based organ of chaos and entropy led for
close to a decade in a de facto manner by Paul Costuros (Death
Sentence: Panda! / Total Shutdown / XBXRX) and generally featuring a
bevy of unhinged freakazoids culled from the creme of the SF/Oakland
art-punk-spuzz-weirdo-rock-free-jazz-noise scene including myself
(Weasel Walter), John Dwyer, Greg Saunier from Deerhoof, Mochipet,
John Weise, Ches Smith and C. Spencer Yeh, as well as members of Child
Abuse, XBXRX, Burmese, Comets On Fire, T.I.T.S, Sic Alps, Erase Errata
and The Hospitals. The actual music is a matter of perspective: some
might call it "fake jazz", some might tag it "noise", some see it as
"performance art", some might call it "bullshit on a stick", but, call
it whatever you will: Murder Murder is really an ongoing attempt at
gleeful, reckless spontaneity within the underground scene. I first
saw the group in 2003 at a gig in SF, armed with twin drum kits and a
trio of electroinically enhanced horn players. The audience was
stricken with confusion during the initial attack: what is this shit?!
Is this music? Is this a real band? YES/NO. The band members seemed to
be fighting themselves and each other at the same time, struggling
with their instruments and attempting to blow each other off the
stage. It was a desperate situation. After a few minutes, the sky
split open and the mess suddenly escalated into a wall of pure,
crystalline shriek that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
The set was over in less than 10 minutes. As much as Murder Murder
seems like a ragged free-for-all, bizarre unity is often the end
result. Do you dare to listen?
