Weird War features Ian Svenonius and Michelle Mae from Make Up as well as Neil Michael Hagerty, late of Royal Trux (and early for the rest of his career), Steve McCarty, and Jessica Espeleta. Originally conceived as an artistic movement, Weird War turned to music and terror when the static medium proved unsuitable. A volatile organisation, its means of production are intentionally unorthodox: "We pick material at random - a poem by the painter Marsden Hartley, a caricature by a newspaper cartoonist, Goldberg, some banal slogans. Someone gave us a photo of a woman's leg in a too-tight shoe; we add some equivocal riffs and lyrics from our files." Intended for the World's Fair as the United States entry, Weird War was meant to celebrate the use of Rock 'n Roll in subduing the world to the global imperial system peaceably. Weird War would therefore have to represent Rock 'n Roll's attributes at their acme: Weird War would therefore have to represent Rock 'n Roll's attributes at their acme: 1. They would profess no creed except secularism and desire; the twin pillars of capitalism. 2. They would be a group with an incorporated name in order to heroically reflect the company titles of the boss class. 3. They would expo the latest gizmos and gadgets in a celebration of technology and scientific advancement. Behold Weird War - a brand new band.
