Sissy Spacek


California’s best kept secret, Sissy Spacek, are the ultimate in extreme noise terror, a violently experimental band who cross whatever lines are left between precise grindcore speedfreakery, electroacoustic sound art, free-jazz pummel, and pure, unadulterated blasts of horrific noise. Their live shows are rare, confrontational, oppressively loud, and often hilariously short—their last appearance in New York in 2007 was legendary on all counts, resulting in shattered guitars and shattered nerves. With Gerritt Witmer and Paul Knowles.
