"The frantic slam of NYC quartet Cellular Chaos draws a bit on the no-wave leanings of their guitarist Weasel Walter as well as the quivering frenzy of his excellent 1990s band Lake of Dracula. But there's something of-the-moment about their sound too, especially in the urgency of singer Admiral Grey... Cellular Chaos' fire has a singular crackle, one that sounds pretty impossible to extinguish." – Pitchfork
On their second full-length release, New York City’s Cellular Chaos has no time for waste. Headed by vocalist Admiral Grey, guitarist Weasel Walter and bassist Shayna Dulberger, “Diamond Teeth Clenched” merges iconoclastic post-punk -slash- no wave experimentalism with articulate songwriting, outlandish glam rock personality and an urgent blast-beat fury.
"Cellular Chaos unfolds as rock music in its purest and most essential form. It may sound nothing like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, or Nirvana, but at its turbulent core, it distills all of the sublimated energy and frustration, the disaffected rancor and idealism, that throughout the years has induced countless people into picking up an instrument and throwing themselves around a stage in the symbolic rejection of everything that’s been pissing them off recently." – Tiny Mix Tapes
Known for his work in The Flying Luttenbachers, XBXRX, Burmese and his current role as Lydia Lunch’s musical director, Weasel Walter initially founded Cellular Chaos as a San Francisco Bay area improvisational instrumental combo, but with a move to Brooklyn, the name was repurposed to christen an entirely new act. The band headed in an equally intense and cathartic direction, but became more song-oriented with the addition of front person Admiral Grey. Grey’s surreal narratives of trauma, apocalypse, and abuse weave furiously
through angular, masterfully expressed arrangements, propelled by the muscular drumming of Marc Edwards - and alternately planted and unrooted by the spinning foundation of double bassist and composer Shayna Dulberger on electric bass.
“Diamond Teeth Clenched” was recorded in Queens, NY with engineer Colin Marston (Krallice) and mixed by Weasel Walter. The album marks a reunion of SKiN GRAFT Records and Walter, who rose to prominence during his tenure at the label with albums from his bands The Flying Luttenbachers and Lake Of Dracula.
