But also Lambchop’s biggest supporters most likely didn’t anticipate HeCTA, a aspect project made by Lambchop head Kurt Wagner and offering his bandmates Scott Martin (whose various other projects consist of Hobbledeions) and Ryan Norris (also an associate of Coupler). HeCTA was made as a car for Wagner’s developing interest in digital dance music, and motivated partly by his understanding of the reserve Love Saves your day: A BRIEF HISTORY of American Dance Music Lifestyle 1970-1979 by Tim Lawrence. HeCTA wasn’t Wagner’s initial brush with digital music; he co-wrote the melody “Provide It” for X-Press 2, U.K. companies Zero 7 caused Lambchop on the remix from the Nixon monitor “Up with People,” and Lambchop collaborated with digital duo Hands Off Cuba for an EP known as CoLAB. HeCTA’s debut record, 2015’s THE DIETARY PLAN, highlighted Wagner on vocals, keyboards, coding, and editing; Norris on synthesizers, vocoder, electric guitar, bass, coding, and editing; and Martin on drums, percussion, keyboards, development, and editing.
