Weasel Walter Interview

English: Weasel Walter playing bass, with Marc...


Weasel Walter is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser best known for leading the seminal punk-jazz/no-wave/brutal-prog band The Flying Luttenbachers between 1991 and 2007 on 16 full-length releases. Seamlessly uniting the intensity and abstraction of improvised music with the nihilist aesthetics of extreme rock forms, Walter is committed to violent momentum, idiomatic unpredictability and rapid articulation. During the 1990s, Walter was a catalyst in the Chicago music underground playing with improvised music luminaries such as Kevin Drumm, Ken Vandermark and Jim O’Rourke as well as many experimental rock bands centered around the Skin Graft record label such as the Flying Luttenbachers, Lake Of Dracula, and Bobby Conn.
