Weasel Walter's ugEXPLODE Records hit the scene in 1991, built upon his wiley notion that extreme metal, noise rock and free jazz could exist peacefully on one man's mail-order imprint. Albert Ayler, Captain Beefheart, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, The Residents, Deicide, Cecil Taylor, Whitehouse, Iannis Xenakis and Black Flag all contributed to the catalog's formation.

Even better? Walter paid every act--fairly and on time, no less--for each and every release.

With his penchant for non-commercialized sounds (despite the haters' credo that the very idea of recording is commerce in and of itself), ugEXPLODE was the primary outlet for Walter's brutal "no wave" outfit The Flying Luttenbachers.

After the label dissolved in 2013, Walter set up a Bandcamp page to digi-release some of ugEXPLODE's classic titles: The Flying Luttenbachers' Trauma, Walter's own Firestorm and David Buddin's sorely underappreciated Canticles for Electronic Music.
