PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN ARE GONNA DIE TONITE!
Internationally renowned cult performance artist, Andre Stitt first met a teenaged Fritz Welch, during a performance at the Commerce Street Artist's Warehouse in Houston, Texas in 1989. They kept in communication with each other over the years and when Welch, now a practicing sonic/visual artist, was curating Acute Zonal Occult Outer, a series of performances relating to drawing installation at The Drawing Center, NYC in 2006 he invited Stitt to create a piece. A couple years later Stitt invited Welch to collaborate in the durational painting project SHIFTwork at The Lab Gallery in NYC. Welch had moved away from NYC the year before and this was the perfect opportunity to arrange a musical mash-up between Stitt and Brothers Peeesseye (Welch on drums & vocals and Chris Forsyth on electric guitar, ⅔ of Peeesseye). This is the audio document of the gig recorded on April 11 2009 at ParisLondonWestNile in Brooklyn NY.

And now once you get to the end of this post, i suggest you to scroll it up to the start and to check linked artists' websites to get more info. At least go here (immediately!) to hear a track from Peeesseye/Talibam! brand new release and then go here to buy it and/or pre-order Peeesseye's forthcoming Pestilence & Joy album. Both are killers!
