Formed from your remnants of Bent Leg Fatima, Want New Body have already been called from “beardo wierdcore” to “spazzcore,” because of its splicing of such disparate designs as noise rock and roll, folk, avant-garde and jazz. Percussionist Chris Powell, keyboardists Dale Jimenez and Jamey Robinson and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Bradbury shaped Bent Calf Fatima in 1996 and afterwards shifted to Philadelphia in 1999 before launching their debut record. Soon after, Robinson departed, leading to the band’s disintegration. Several months afterwards, the members started playing once again under different brands, while adding bassist Chris Reggiani and percussionist Jim Reggiani. After documenting their self-titled debut in 2000, the group resolved on the name Want New Body and got on expenses with like-minded rings such as for example Hella and Deerhoof. The band’s second record, UFO, premiered in fall 2003. 2 yrs later Where is certainly Black Ben? came on Kill Rock and roll Superstars offshoot label 5 Rue Christine.
