more than an hour of previously unheard studio and live material circa '80-'84 by this incendiary group of malcontents led by madmen drummers Mark E. Miller and Charles K. Noyes. the destructive duo is probably best known for their tandem appearances on classic early albums by John Zorn ("Pool"), Elliott Sharp ("Carbon") and Material ("Live From Soundscape 1981") but now their own cacophonous story can finally be told!!!
Beginning as a pyromaniac noise duo, moving through DNA-on-crack no-wave power trio succinctness, early Material-esque avant-funk and beyond Miller and Noyes were joined by a who's-who of downtown NYC musicians. this release features great performances by Zorn, Sharp, Arto Lindsay, Bill Laswell, Wayne Horvitz, Michael Beinhorn, the late Paul Burwell, Thi-Linh Le, Nicky Skopelitis and liner notes by Anton Fier and Weasel Walter.
Painstakingly edited and remixed from hours of raw tapes by Weasel Walter, this CD is a definitive statement of the early period of a band that never got its due. Keep on the lookout for brand new Toy Killers material in 2009 feat. Miller, Noyes, Walter, Henry Kaiser and more! the extremity will never cease!!!
