about

BLUE SAUSAGE INFANT is the work of Chester Hawkins of Washington DC. The sound of BSI lives somewhere in the space between noise and psychedelia, using a mixture of electronics, toys, and conventional instruments. The result stumbles between delicate ambience, krautrock-flavored trance music, and harsh brutalism.

BSI has performed and recorded since 1988, including collaborations with Haunted Toilet, Lida Husik, New Carrollton, Delta of Venus, Changes to Blind, and Stolen Government Binder Clip. With the milestone of BSI's 20th anniversary, Chester has launched a fresh attack on live performances in the DC area, promising an unpredictable, hallucinatory stew of sounds for the brave and confused. This Zeromoon product is the first official BSI release since the 2001 CD-R "Supple Supple".
