Biography

Food For Animals’ (aka MC Volture Voltaire and DJ/Producer Ricky Rabbit) debut EP, Scavengers is a joint release between Upper Class Recordings and Muckamuck Records, currently available online--an official release is slated for the U.S. and Canada this fall (2005). "Scavengers" scours, and grates the listener's mind with politically mocking banter and deranged instrumentation.

This Washington, DC duo have been making music since April 2003 and it all began with a CD-R loaded with metallic, dirty rhymes, and samples of singing children buried under monstrous beats. The same CD-R that Upper Class Recordings found lying, discarded on the floor following a seedy CMJ after party in the fall of 2003. After the first listen of those extreme sounds, Upper Class Recordings had decided to track down these Food For Animals noise terrorists and release their sounds into the world.

“Splattercore! Triple-time, chewed up and spat out jungle rhythms form the foundation for top-heavy constructions overloaded with Bollywood strings, guitar feedback and backmasked R&B vocals. It's enough to make El-P's music sound positively straight-forward"

Glowing reviews from the very selective taste makers at PitchforkMedia.com, The Wire (UK) and Brave New Waves facilitated an extensive and seemingly endless tour across America and the UK with Discord’s, DIY angular punk rock trio, Q and Not U.
