Smell and Quim is a freeform improvised noise band, composed of Milovan Srdenovic (né Davy Walklett) and Stewart Keith (né Walden, then Bizarro, then Treize), who have released music initially in cassette form, but also more recently on compact disc.
Their output has largely been concerned with diverse (and frequently taboo) topics such as fetishism, alcoholism, pornography, medical terminology (in the vein of Goregrind bands such as Carcass) and necrophilia and is of a nihilistic and absurdist nature. Their rare live shows (which often feature colourful and surreal costumes) straddle the line between music and performance art, influenced and inseminated by performers such as Throbbing Gristle, Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell and Hugh Metcalfe. Their performance at the Deaf Forever festival run by the Termite Club in Leeds on 28 May 2007 resulted in the entire festival being ejected from the venue, due to the mutilation and burning of a pig's head. Bands who have cited Smell and Quim as an influence include Mad Eel Gobbled a Thumb and Ceramic Hobs and Snotnosed.
