The Abominable Twitch is the super-hero alter ego of Max Glascott in his otherwise inadequate human form. I am Max. Wow.
I began sampling informational cd-roms when I was 12 years old, layering samples on top of stolen breaks from the chemical brothers, and other acts alike. When I was 13 I started listening to digital hardcore because it was louder and even angstier than punk rock and the small handful of metal bands I enjoyed so dutifully. Making digital hardcore music sounded like a fun and effective way to explore my imminent teenage angst. It was also cheap and easy, and allowed me to be my own punk rock garage band, which was more or less the point. I collaborated with a fist full of other kids in the chicago scene and started to discover a large network of like minded folk largely rooted out of detroit and canada. The music has undoubtedly changed a lot, but these contacts and collaborations are still maintained to a degree today and I am enjoying the evolution of technology and the art of electronic music making as much as I possibly can. It is truly a cavernous medium worthy of a lifetime’s devotion and curiosity…
I currently live and work in Chicago. I release music solo and collaboratively with other artists, independently and through non-profit Chicago outfit, Alphabasic Records. Check them out (and their amazing roster, and non-profit music school) HERE.
