1) A project of a Montreal based musician and videoartist Airick Woodhead started around 2010. He creates intense music for staying up all night, just thinking. It's "a sea of chopped up samples, disembodied vocals and tribal percussion. Electro-hallucinogenic freak outs and fuzzy warm nostalgia" (No Pain in Pop).
2) An avant-garde/experimental rock band from Fairfax, Virginia, consisted of Justin Chearno (guitar), Bill Kellum (bass), and Matt Kellum (drums). They were active between 1994 and 2000, having released four albums. Their music was highly improvised, and they almost did not play live. Justin Chearno also played in Pitchblende in the mid-90s, now lives in NYC and plays in Turing Machine, Panthers, and others. Bill Kellum has been running the VHF label since 1991, which has released recordings by Skullflower, Flying Saucer Attack, Pelt, Rake, Wingtip Sloat, Total, Sunroof!, Richard Youngs/Simon Wickham-Smith, etc. Matt Kellum plays in a band called Chomsky.
