Keep Westword Free

Fight Spider with Spider is reading my mind

Finally, a band has emerged that combines my love of experimental improvisation and dub with my love for spiders (seriously, I love the creepy little bastards). The brilliantly named Fight Spider with Spider lists David Lynch and John Zorn amongst its influences, has an instrumental credit for "mad scientist station," sound like a horror movie is supposed to feel -- you know, kind of creepy and unsettling and leaving you unsure what is coming next -- and sport song titles such as "Elephant Hand of the New Godhead Night." In other words, it's like they reached into my brain and pulled out my blueprint for a perfect band. They've got a nice selection of tracks for your adventuorus listening pleasure on their MySpace and they've definitely intrigued me enough to put them on my must-see-live list. Check them out and maybe I will see you at one of their shows (when they announce one...).
