Maxi Bacon

Maxi Bacon the collaboration of Freeka Peeka (Sgure/Gazormass - Bordeaux, France) and Scott Sinclair (Company Fuck/Botborg - Berlin, Germany). Equally inspired by computer glitch, grindcore, breakcore, cartoon music, and karaoke, Maxi Bacon serve up an electrified meat-punch to the brain with random collages of screaming digital nonsense and mass audio confusion. The basis of their sound comes from using highly customised music software to accompany their extreme and unpredictable vocal improvisations – from metal growls, to karaoke crooning, to uncomfortable vomiting, to microscopic spitting and breathing. Maxi Bacon deliberately carry themselves with a blatant disregard for appropriate musical conduct, instead indulging in brutal noise blasts, confusing musical choices, computer wizardry and vocal stupidity.
