This is the ninth Quintron album. Brief research positions him at the forefront of the Chicago / Detroit noise scene in the early ’90s which included Wolf Eyes, Andrew W.K., Magas, 25 Suaves, Flying Luttenbachers, and The Scissor Girls. He broke away from the art/noise scene after his first two releases on the Bulb label and began developing the raw organ-driven electronic dance music he is known for now. He also opened an underground club in Chicago called Milk Of Burgundy to put on dance parties and shows for acts which were rejected by the established bar/club system — which he and Miss Pussycat continue to do at the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans. Quintron is probably most famous for inventing a bizarre light-activated electronic synthesizer called the Drum Buddy — kind of a lightbulb charged synth, crossed with a DJ turntable — which is as breathtaking to behold as it is to hear. Often mistaken for a Detroit or Chicago native, Quintron was actually born in Germany and raised in Mobile, Alabama. In 1996 he moved to New Orleans to join a collective called The Pussycat Caverns, where he united with Miss Pussycat (Panacea Theriac) and began touring extensively, merging her technicolor childrens puppet theater with his raw inventive electronic music into one solid act. Their most ambitious project to date, Swamp Tech, showcases this alliance. Quintron and Miss Pussycat evoke a sincere authenticity and passion on this album that few musicians are capable of bringing to their recordings. Of course, Quintron’s Hammond organ continues dominate, combined with soul-sucking vocals and his Drum Buddy invention’s most electro inspired beats to date. Swamp Tech is gospel-bop at its most sinister.
