marcwithacokay This is the best writing I've heard from Weasel Walter. His bandmates executed the melodic lines flawlessly. Great album! Favorite track: Fury Of The Delusion.

KENNY CHARLTON! my dear Agnes, have you also been enjoying the silence of not having the kids around too? I know nigels still here but he barely counts.
we get to watch the chase and hold hands and not be interrupted by "hey can you sign this permission slip for school camp?"
or "hey when are you guys gonna start dinner it's almost 10"
or "dad the interents shat out again" they were never keen to sit with us and watch babe in the big city on VHS, the way it's MEANT to be watched with us, so why try anymore? Favorite track: Fury Of The Delusion.

Steven Smith weasel walter aka the weez has a new band! now he's a guitarist. deal with it. this is a ferocious assault on apathy and a declaration of malevolence uncalled for, but welcome. you're either with the weez or against the weez and i firmly stand with the weez. against all odds the flying luttenbachers will prevail!

about

The Flying Luttenbachers
Negative Infinity
CD/LP/Download
ugEXPLODE Records/LP version released by GOD Records

Roaring out of the gates is the 15th full-length album by no wave/punk jazz/brutal prog iconoclasts The Flying Luttenbachers, led by founding member and main composer Weasel Walter. There's a few special twists this time, friends. The last two albums, "Shattered Dimension" and "Imminent Death", both epic double-length affairs released in 2019, focused on open ended, improvisational approaches more so than heavily structured ones. "Negative Infinity" is a sort of return-to-form in a regard, featuring 6 tightly scripted doses of what they call "Brutal Prog" - the tag Weasel coined in the early 2000s to describe an elite breed of intense, complex bands who emphasised harshness and intensity over the typical prog-rock flutes and fairies positivity. This is prog for THE APOCALYPSE, not your uncle. The merciless opening track sets the tone for the album - "Fury of the Delusion" is a through-composed, neck-snapping whirlwind of a number where an unrelenting, hair-raisingly harmonized line spat forth in unison by saxophone and duel guitars is investigated, turned upside down and transformed into a deadly musical cyborg. Oh yes - the other big surprise is that Weasel doesn't provide his usual hyperactive drumming on this release. The chap has switched to guitar. He feels that it will be easier to drip sweat on the punters that way.That's right. Close your eyes. That's Sam Ospovat on the drums. Doesn't he sound great? We bet you won't even miss the Weez! Dark overlords Tim Dahl (bass) and Matt Nelson (saxophone) return once again and newest member Katie Battistoni plays the other guitar parts. The closing number, "On The Verge Of Destruction" is a monolithic side-long extrapolation off of Albert Ayler's bizarre '66/'67 "marching band on acid" musical suites. The group is shuttled through an exacting sequence of berserk rollercoaster melodies and the whole front line takes turns spewing outrageous solos. The structure coils up the band to release a climactic orgy of noise before the piece goes back to the beginning and winds down. The rest of the tunes may invoke fragant whiffs of old Mayhem sturm und drang, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks sonic terrorism, the jigsaw puzzle logic of the Rock In Opposition bands and, ahem, even '90s Flying Luttenbachers style varsity team punk-jazz ("Demonic Velocities II" appears here as a meta-sequel to the old chestnut first performed by the group as early as 1993). The core tenets of The Flying Luttenbachers remain: Dissonance, Speed, Aggression, Weirdness, Singularity. This is perhaps the finest chapter of the three-decade saga so far . . .
