A Wart Biter is a type of grasshopper that people used to think could cure warts by, well, biting them. It probably didn't work...
Wart Biter also happens to be a brand new night/collaboration/band, performing on 27th August at The Others in Stoke Newington.
This project brings together four musicians from different backgrounds, who all seem to insist on creating genre-defying, progressive music: Colin Webster - saxophone (Chik Budo), Tom Fuglesang - drums (Gum Takes Tooth, Agaskodo Teliverek), Jussi Brightmore - electronics (Gum Takes Tooth), and Toby McLaren - keyboards (Led Bib).
Together and through different formations the musicians will perform electro-acoustic improvisations drawing from a diverse range of music, taking influences from artists such as John Zorn, Supersilent, Fuck Buttons, etc.. etc...
