Out of Kentucky they come, from their home near the corner of wherever Can, grindcore and Flipper intersect. Their exuberant group improvisations, laden with doom-wrought concepts and Downer-rock riffage, are typically wrapped in a bloody mess of a drawing, ink on fishpaper, courtesy of vocalist / illustrator Matt Minter. Yes, I speak of Wretched Worst, the band that everyone in the noise-rock microverse is talking about, the first live band on The Castle in several months, and a great artist to mark the program's return to live music.

Doug Schulkind presents an hour of spoken-words-set-to-music from the unheard poet-mystic Roxy Gordon.

The group's lyrics are drawn from Jewish religious texts, but the music is wide open. Recently the band added yet another dimension, teaming up with the electrifying Malian Singer Khaira Arby. She joins the Sway Machinery on the band's latest cd The House of Friendly Ghosts (JDub) and on an Electric Cowbell 7".
