“MARRIAGE MEAT-OFFERING” FEBRUARY 2015
Matt Minter has always been on the edge. Bringing demented and transgressive artwork to life since the mid 90s, he cemented his reputation for twisting the screw in 1998 when co-founding Hexose, one of Lexington’s first and most notorious noise bands. Performances divided crowds into camps of tolerance and hate. Following the inevitable demise of Hexose, Minter continued working in audio terror with Hair Police. Appearing on tapes, EPs, and the band’s first full length record, "Blow Out Your a Blood," his time with the band culminated in a two month tour of the entire US.
“SCALPLESS CARESS” MARCH 2013
Being the type of guy who needs to do his own thing, it was only a matter of time before Minter birthed one of the most horrifying bands in the underground: Wretched Worst. Multiple EPs, tapes, a full length record and lots of self-slashing have been left in its wake--bloodstains on stages and basement floors throughout the US provide proof.
“NEST” FEBRUARY 2013
Most striking of all is Minter's visual art. Having worked with mutilated figures for decades, his images have a stark surrealism that invokes an immediate visceral response. Heralding the aesthetics of films found on VHS, there are seeming nods to 80's gems such as "Savage Streets" and "Nightmare". Muck, sensuality, and gore. Brutal derangement, the wrong end of knives. Lingerie and vice, death, vitality, libido. A wonder to behold in all it's gruesome and earnest glory. —Written by Mike Connelly
