Scott Irving-Percussion, Vocals

The first Squealer release for the "Lake" after a couple of 7" records for their own label, DeTox. Maximum Rock N Roll (of all places) may have described their sound best: "1 part Jesus Lizard, 1 part Alice Donut, 1 part Black Sabbath, 1 part Charles Mingus, 1 part Black Flag, 1 part Butthole Surfers; add alcohol and LSD. Stir." I'm not sure that we could really say it any better.

Unfortunately, due the volatile nature of the above-mentioned cocktail, they've now expired. Even if you can't enjoy them in full swing, you can still enjoy their works.

Chris and his brother Jim were also 2/3 of the band Slowchange Madagascar who put out some singles on D-Tox and various compilation tracks. Scotty Irving currently has a solo project called the Clang Quartet.
