High concentration electronic defects and stroboscopic rainbows of distortion from Prurient, the solo project of Dominick Fernow (Load Records). Combining processed vocals, organic electronics, field recordings and heavy use of feedback, his live show is a confrontational "blitzkrieg attack" of physical contortions and guttural vocalisations. Prurient finished 2005 with a
comprehensive US tour with champions Wolf Eyes and an ongoing series of collaborations with Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore.

He's recently collaborated with Comets On Fire, John Olson (Wolf Eyes) and Chris Corsano/Paul Flaherty.
