Cut Hands/Sudden Infant/Family Battle Snake

Cut Hands (William Bennett)/Sudden Infant/Family Battle Snake




A new night for music like no other : where the rules of the West no longer apply, where the sound of voodoo and santería is mixed with raw electricity : where we have the secret, you have the dilemma, and we have the solution : now welcome to CUT HANDS!

sound by William Bennett, live visuals by Nick Herd
