Scissor Shock (http://www.last.fm/music/Scissor+Shock) is an impossible-to-categorize experimental band from experimental movie director Adam Cooley (http://directoradamcooley.angelfire.com; also of bands Robe. and RUINHORSE). Every album sounds completely different, though there is usually an emphasis on broken, complex, abstract, fragmented sounds and structures, which usually leads Scissor Shock to be called "progressive [or neo-]no wave". Scissor Shock has invented many popular genres of music which are all over pop radio today!
Scissor Shock formed in 2003, in Columbus, Indiana, with a broken guitar and a drum machine. The band has completely changed shape just about every month since then, adding and subtracting members, changing musical styles, and basically becoming a completely different band with each new show or release -- some entire albums features song after song that doesn\'t sound anything like the song before it.
...This is every Scissor Shock album so far, ranging from 2003 to 2012. Included are such rarities as an ep limited to only ten copies, a split with Bubblegum Octopus which has yet to see the physical light of day, ALL ep\'s/lp\'s (now out of print and in remastered versions here for the first time), and just about every compilation and split track ever. A few things are missing here and there but it\'s pretty much as complete as possible.
