Part of the HEADBOGGLE / MALOCCULSION Phonic Tour: Summer 2019.
THE HAUNTING (members of Clay Rendering, Hair Police, etc.)
Before forming the acclaimed dark post-punk project Clay Rendering, Mike and Tara Connelly unleashed a series of raw and unnerving slabs of noise in the mid to late 00’s as The Haunting, their foreboding minimalism finding its way onto vital labels like Chondritic Sound, Hospital Productions, Heavy Tapes, and Mike’s own imprint Gods Of Tundra. Recently resurrected and just as fiercely coarse as ever.

The Fathers is the duo of the Bay Area’s Derek Gedalecia, a.k.a. Headboggle, and Los Angeles’ Nathan Bowers of Tusco Terror and his solo guise Coagulator.
Derek Gedalecia, a.k.a. Headboggle, has been performing electronic keyboard-based soundscapes for several years in the Bay Area in over a hundred local performances at venues ranging from GTK to YBCA. Incorporating lowbrow with highbrow art, music, and comedy, Head Boggle’s intent is to fuse together a new ecstatic improvisational performance style with a carefully crafted musical underbed.
Nathan Bowers has been a mainstay of experimental circles in Ohio and the Bay Area, and he has just recently taken up residence in Los Angeles. Bowers was a founding member of Ohio noise behemoth Tusco Terror and one of the founders of the Tusco/Embassy label, responsible for releasing the work of Emeralds, Leslie Keffer, Nautical Almanac, and Bee Mask among others. He also performs solo as Coagulator.
