ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET
ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET
The Art Gray Noise Quintet was originally formed to play at the after party for a screening of the 'Color of Noise' which is Eric Robles movie about Amphetamine Reptile Records. Eric thought I had a functioning lineup of Lubricated Goat but I have officially ended playing under that name.If I had I'd have been the last Am Rep band still stupid enough, certainly not rich enough to attempt to function in New York.So,it was obvious i must assemble a super group of the finest noise Noise Rockers New York had to offer and knock the punters sox off at the party but just a one off,I was also determined to get the notoriously shyTom Hazelmeyer to jam at what was essentially a film honouring his achievments in the heady days of 90s Rock. My main man drummer"Bloody Rich" Hutchins was away,so I enlisted drummer Jay Jay Meraz who did a great job but is still pissedoff at me for having to abdicate the drummer's seat on Rich's return.Next I recruited Ryan Skelleton Boy,who just as LeadBelly was the King of the 12 string guitar,is himself the King of the two String Bass.Then came guitarist Andrea Sicco of Twin Guns,not only does this free me up when i'm singing,but when our guitars merge it forms a most piquant Aural Melange.Last but not least was Johhny Scuotto,who originally filled in on bass at one rehearsal yet is talented in so many ways that he was given carteblanche to do whatever he wanted thus he plays synthesizer and metal percusson,he also vies with Skelleton Boy for the title of skinniest man in New York. I christened the ensemble the Art Gray Noizz Quintet,having laboured under the name Stu for most of my life only to discover the much cooler name of Art was hiding on the end all along,a new name for a new band.Although the band was only going to play once,peopleseem to like this combination of people so much that they demanded we play more so we've decided to play occasionally when the right thing comes up.We have some great material some instrumental some choice covers and some,well come and see for yourselves......Cheers,Stu......I mean Art.
