black pus is brian chippendale, who rose to prominence as the drummer of cult noise rock titans lightning bolt and mindflayer. chippendale refined the black pus sound over numerous self-released cds and 2011's primordial pus on load records, replacing the saxophone with an drum-mounted oscillator and experimenting with pop structures. over the course of the past several years chippendale has been hand-picked by the likes of bjork and the flaming lips as a collaborator and recruited by andrew wk for lee 'scratch' perry's 2008 album repentance. chippendale's furious drumming style is ever present and instantly recognizable, but the pop element, which chippendale explored in more contained ways on earlier black pus releases, is more fully integrated. 'all my relations' retains the expansive, primal sound of chippendale's earlier recordings, enhanced by the clarity of the studio. black pus has attained vicious transcendence.
