His words, not mine. And I say “will” because he’s not referring to the confusion you’ve already experienced from his extensive discography. He’s referring to a new, yet unnamed band that just might top all that.
Since the position’s vacant, I hereby nominate Weasel for hardest working man in show business. I mean, I don’t even know the guy and I’m indebted to him – I send him a quick email to ask what’s new and he gives me an article that writes itself.
Most surprisingly, he tells me Flying Luttenbachers is done. I repeat. Flying Luttenbachers is no more. "I can pull the nails out of my hands and come down off the cross. It feels good.” Until more surfaces about his promised new monster, we’ve got slightly less earth shaking sounds to hold us over. Fans of WW Quartet’ll be excited to see these new clips from Cellular Chaos and Dislocation Unit, two yet unrecorded projects (more on Weasel’s youtube channel).
There’s some real tight communication between Weasel and his drummers, but Weasel’s not quite satisfied yet. “Cellular Chaos is sort of on ice right now because I’m rethinking our approach. So far it has been free improvisation, but I feel like the format is more effective with some structure. We haven’t really recorded anything yet and probably wont until after the restructuring. I like these guys and I think our best work is still ahead of us.” Despite all his connections, Walter’s still scouting for new outlets. From his website: "If anybody who reads this wants to release any of my improvised music, contact me and make me an offer. . ."
And speaking of the quartet, Weasel’s just back from Europe with Austrian saxophonist Mario Rechturn, who played on the new Firestorm CD, not to mention some dates with XBXRX. New York trumpeter Peter Evan’s also in the mix, they're actually together playing tonight in Frisco...after which Weasel's gonna take a little breather. Expect releases from him and Peter Evans later this year. And Weasel just joined Burmese. He’ll be recording with them soon. WOWBOBWOW
Let’s see…anything else…oh yeah, that Carmen video I featured a few months ago? I wasn't in the habit of crediting youtube sources then, but I found it on Weasel’s Youtube channel...more debt owed to the champ. Weasel 4 prez
