JENCKS (Oakland, CA)

R. JENCKS // AZOG // SERPENTS // SIXES // PREYERS // PHT // CARRION // MANSLAUGHTER // DEATHROES // SR-71 // SUMMONS // CRASH WORSHIP

Little is known about Bay Areas SIXES with limited releases, cryptic interviews, and next to no documentation. Nothing but a bloodied trail of live miasma can peice together a 20+yr hellish trainwreck. Dating back somewhere around the late 80's under the nom de guerre, AZOG, years of venomous scum electronics thrust upon the west coast underground denizen were greeted with aversion. Most notably in San Diego, where SIXES' lineage can be traced back to an early incarnation of avaunt-doom act Physics & rhythm / noise assault outfit Crash Worship through the 90's. Organ, guitar, horns, tapes, homemade circuits served as vehicle in exploring nothing but total sonic hate while melting heads with walls of amplifiers.

Playing out solo between tours and organizing numerous underground experimental shows out of his basement, galleries, warehouses and throughout Southern California, it was in 2000 when relocating to Oakland that brought his selfstyled vitriol to a larger audience. Converting an old store front to a speak-easy music venue hosting hundreds of events for local and international touring underground acts over the years while creating one of the noise strongholds of the greater Bay Area.
