Album Notes
Screaming Headless Torsos, brainchild of mad-scientist virtuoso guitarist David "Fuze" Fiuczynski, began in 1984 as a punk-funk-reggae-opera band. In 1990 riveting vocalist extraordinaire Dean Bowman joined the band, beginning their original and creative take on avant-funk rock. The Torsos intensely high energy, impassioned playing and transcendent musicianship inspired fans, other musicians, and numbers of tribute bands all over the world, becoming a cult phenomena with their first CD "1995", released on Warner-Discovery Records. Their 1996 "Live!!" CD further proved their astonishing abilities and has been chosen repeatedly for "Best of All Time" lists of major publications worldwide. The band's newest release, "2005" is a ten year celebration of the unique musical chemistry of their iconoclastic, inspired and sometimes wacky artistry. In 2005 The Torsos also released a thrilling three hour double live DVD featuring two full concerts, recorded in 1996 at the Knitting Factory, New York City and in 2004 at the New Morning in Paris, France.

The musicians of the Torsos are all extraordinary players in their own right, having collectively performed with many of the biggest names in the pop, rock, r&b and jazz worlds. Bassist Fima Ephron is the big bottom of the group, with a fluid and fat sound that grounds the electrifying music. Percussionist Daniel Sadownick, the band's "secret weapon", creates ambient soundscapes with squeezy toys, shakers, gongs and burning congas, and powers the whole band with his profoundly passionate playing. The Torsos are a full-on rhythm extravaganza, with mind-blowing drummer Gene Lake, awesome funk-fusion master, bringing both extreme chops and supremely funky pocket to this phenomenal music.

Screaming Headless Torsos were chosen by the 2004 Downbeat Critics Poll as "Rising Stars - Electric Jazz Group".

Music With Surprises
Fuze 10 years later, after his first release which belongs to the best music I've ever heard, is still alive. And I hope that I don't have to scream for the next 10 years to get the chance to listen to new stuff of this group. Fuze mach weiter so!!!
