Industrial / punk / noise / post-punk band from New York City, formed in 2009.

Art Gray Noizz Quintet

Spearheaded by twisted Australian guitar legend STU SPASM of LUBRICATED GOAT, CRUNT, and THE BEASTS OF BOURBON, THE ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET were originally formed for a party celebrating the premiere of AMPHETAMINE REPTILE documentary THE COLOR OF NOISE. First in line was basher extraordinaire "BLOODY" RICH HUTCHINS, veteran of such explosive musical exports as LIVE SKULL, OF CABBAGES AND KINGS and RUIN. Next, SKELETON BOY of WOMAN was recruited. "Who, just as LEADBELLY was the King Of The Twelve-String Guitar, is himself The King Of The Two-String Bass," says Spasm. Then came the twang, with the addition of suave slinger ANDREA SICCO of TWIN GUNS. "When our guitars merge, it forms a most piquant aural melange." In a nod to the latter half of his birth name, STU SPASM now became ART GRAY, and the fifth arm of the Quintet became an ever-rotating slot, a wildcard ranging from horn sections to scrap metal percussion. With that, an entirely new mess was born, and THE ART GRAY NOIZZ QUINTET continue to cut a sleazy, heavy, swinging swath through the dull hordes of the New York music scene. The debut single, A CALL TO YOU, hits May 2018. Debut LP to follow.
