Functioning as a 2 piece, but occasionally appearing as a solo act,
DESTRUCTO SWARMBOTS has toured extensively, including two US tours(one in
support of Italys ZU) and a European tour in support of New Jerseys
avant-hip hop act, DÄLEK, which saw DS joining DÄLEK and German legends,
FAUST, on stage for an 8 man performance at the Bad Bonn Kilbi festival in
Dudingen, Switzerland. DS has also shared the stage with GUAPO, THE BUG,
DONNA SUMMER, HANIN ELIAS, ODDATEEE, and THE NEW FLESH.
DESTRUCTO SWARMBOTS has released a self-titled, tour only CD and the full
length, 2 available on Creepy Dog Eyes. They also remixed the ISIS song,
From Sinking, which appears on ISIS Oceanic Remixes Vol. 4 LP available
on Robotic Empire and the Japanese edition available on Daymare
Recordings, which collects all 4 LPs together as a 2CD set. DS recently
collaborated with Baltimores DRUMMACHINEGUN for a release which will see
the light of day in 2005. DS member, Mike Mare, is also one half of the
group MUNG, whose
forthcoming debut, "Dididau," is slated to be mixed by Hans Joachim Irmler

ConstantMauk is Kelly Nourse of Harm Stryker
[ http://harmstryker.org ]. Constant Mauk explores the depths
of minimalism in noise and feedback based manipulation,
incorporating lo-fi devices such as micro-cassette
recorders with unconventional mixing techniques.

Harm Stryker is Kelly Nourse (aka ConstantMauk), & Kenneth Yates. Harm
Stryker needs no introduction.
::::Insects with Tits [ http://myspace.com/insectswithtits ]
If you'd hooked up a transducer to the key at the end of Ben Franklin's
kite it might have sounded something like this: A slowly gathering storm
filled with birdish chirps in the upper-mid and a pea-soup fog of
bristling drone, until everything erupts into the kind of cleansing rain
Travis Bickle dreamed of. Dark ambience is the focus but not the rule, as
there's an earthy beauty inside these howling machines. Cells divide,
electromagnetism radiates, blood pumps, gravity pulls. It's noise music,
yes, but the kind that envelops and keeps you company on lonely evenings.
Insects with Tits is Roger Smith of Chefkirk & Kenneth Yates of Harm
Stryker, both of Virginia. Their project is an experiment, like the best
things in life-- a politically and socially explicit venture with a focus
on vegan action.
::::Chefkirk [ http://tibprod.com/chefkirk.html ]
Chefkirk is Roger Smith (Insects With Tits) a combination of improvised
drone and harsh electronics squeezed from a minimal arsenal of glitchy
instruments and feedback loops. The ever prolific Chefkirk, given the
amount of releases he has produced since the inception of Chefkirk in 2003
has released records on TibProd, AudioBot, Brise-Cul, ScratchNSniff
Entertainment, Retinascan, Carbon Records, 804noise and others. Chefkirk
is a socially and politically charged venture, focusing mostly on the
issue of animal rights. This theme shows up frequently in Chefkirk
releases in some form or another, whether it's through quotes, artwork, or
other abstract conceptions that promote the ethical treatment of animals.
