The blisteringly intense NYC-based CELLULAR CHAOS fuses ballistic rock-and-roll energy with no-wave weirdness and touches of ’70s glam and free jazz, garnering a singular reputation in the contemporary underground music scene for their incendiary live performances, manic musicianship and futuristically left-of-center songwriting.
