    One of John Zorn's many side projects. It is absolutely the WEIRDEST stuff I have ever heard in my life, including Primus, Mr. Bungle, Dillinger Escape Plan and Melt Banana! It's a marvel that someone could even come up with stuff like that, let alone play it. Needless to say, I was an instant fan and I was wondering if there were any others.

    Actually - I was surprised to hear this too - they did SIX albums! (They are all practically IMPOSSIBLE to find, though) I heard that their live album will be released next month or somewhen like that.

    As far as getting back together, I read an interview with Zorn in which he said that they broke up when he ran out of ideas. However, he has still done a ton of other side projects with the same musicians.
