No one on the downtown scene is more qualified to be heir to the mantle of Captain Beefheart than hardcore multi-instrumentalist, impresario, and agent provocateur Weasel Walter. The former leader of now disbanded free jazz noisemakers the Flying Luttenbachers, Walter straddles the boundaries of death metal, noise, punk, and, well, anything he can get his hands on, with an irreverent disregard for the constraints of rhythm or melody. He's also a scholar of the '80s No Wave scene, and has recently been collaborating with poster girl Lydia Lunch, who released her last solo album on his label, the appropriately named ugExplode. With Bob Crusoe, Bukkake Moms, and Load-in.
