Radar Eyes: Exterminating Angels' Shaun Kelly Spreads The Carnage Of Weird Houston

Rotten Piece has been one of Houston's most adventurous experimental/noise-rock /psychedelic/time-lag/hallucinated/film-munch/ continent-hopping units for 20 years. As we just found out during the course of this interview, their upcoming record release will be one of the LAST chances you'll get to see them perform as a Texan act. Prepare your Jesus juice for the release of Exile on 23rd St.

Radar Eyes: State your name and purpose.

Shaun Kelly: name: rotten piece (aka shaun kelly)

purpose: mess with peoples heads

RE: How long have you been messing with these poor nuttaz?

SK: I have been causing trouble as rotten piece since 1990, and i don't plan to stop anytime soon.

RE: So what's this about a new release?

SK: Exile On 23rd St. on Lazy Squid Industries. It will be released next week, and I will be playing a show Sat Feb 27 at Super Happy Fun Land to celebrate. It's a big ugly CD that blurs the lines between noise and rock. I recorded it with Scott Ayers and the guys from Homopolice June-Sept 2009.
