The long awaited release by Screaming Headless Torsos is a powerful mélange of the incredibly funky and original jazz-rock that made their name as "Musicians Musicians" fantastically played, but totally burning. Not afraid to rock out, Torsos combine their soul, rock and jazz in exceptionally brilliant and unique ways. Screaming Headless Torsos is the brainchild of mad-scientist guitarist David "Fuze" Fiuczynski, and began in 1984 as a punk-funk-reggae-opera band. In 1990 they added vocalist extraordinaire Dean Bowman and began their original take on avant-funk rock. The Torsos exceptionally high energy and virtuosic musicianship inspired fans, other musicians, and numbers of cover bands all over the world, becoming a cult phenomena with their first CD "1995" (released originally on Warner-Discovery Records). Their 1996 "Live!!" CD further proved their incredible ability and creativity and has been chosen repeatedly for "Best of All Time" lists from prominent publications worldwide. The bands newest effort, "2005" is their ten year celebration of the unique musical chemistry of their iconoclastic and sometimes wacky artistry. The musicians of the Torsos are all incredible players in their own right, who have collectively played with many of the biggest names in the pop and jazz worlds. Bassist Fima Ephron is the big bottom of the group, with a fluid and fat sound that grounds the highly percussive music. Percussionist Daniel Sadownick, the "secret weapon" of the band, using everything from squeezy toys to burning congas, powers the whole band with his passionate playing. Star drummer Gene Lake is simply one of the best drummers playing today, with extreme chops and supremely funky pocket. With special guest vocals by soul-rock vocalist Freedom Bremner.
