Unsane Bio

Band members
Chris Spencer: Vocals, Guitar Dave Curran: Vocals, Bass Vinny Signorelli: Drums


The band returned to independent Amphetamine Reptile for 1995's 'Scattered, Smothered and Covered,' recording the album in three sessions at the Amphetamine Reptile studio. Named for a sloppy dish of homefries served by Waffle House, 'Scattered...' contained the unlikely video hit "Scrape," named one of MTV's 10 all-time funniest videos. Made for only two hundred dollars, the video stayed in heavy rotation for more than nine weeks on both MTV and The Box. After a year of touring in support of 'Scattered...,' including a Thrasher-sponsored headlining tour of Europe, UNSANE got the break of a lifetime securing the support slot for SLAYER's American tour.

In 1998, after touring for 'Scattered...' was completed, UNSANE signed with Relapse Records for the release of their next album, the ferocious 'Occupational Hazard.' 'Occupational Hazard' (their fourth full-length release) cemented the band's status as legends in the indie rock scene, and as the pillar of the international noise rock movement.

With their patented and oft-copied blend of volume, velocity, and violence, UNSANE have continuously taken their art to new levels of extremity. In 2003, Relapse issued 'LAMBHOUSE (UNSANE 1991-1998)', a collection of that compiled the best tracks from all of the UNSANE's official releases plus a bonus DVD containing all of the bands music videos, providing new listeners and long time fans alike an avid testimony as to why UNSANE are universally recognized as the premier noise rock band in the world.

The NYC noise rock kingpins return in 2004 with their first full length album of new material since 1998's Occupational Hazard. On "Blood Run", UNSANE bombard the listener with punishing, abrasive music delivered with the subtlety of a head-on car crash. "Blood Run" administers immeasurable amounts of the band's unequalled combination of blood, guts and violence as vocalist / guitarist Chris Spencer's scraping guitar work and vocal angst is cemented by a pounding rhythm section and domineering air of volatile aggressiveness.
