Raised on the subways of NYC, the Luddites formed in Fall 2010 for a three day residency at the experimental dance space La Mama. They've been confounding audiences ever since with their dedication to forcing cacophony, free jazz, funk and pop into submission. The band is also involved in Amplified Cactus Salon, an experimental art collective that incorporates, cooking, acting, and visual art into its performances.
With its many members spread out across all five boroughs, the Luddites spend a lot of time in the parallel universe that exists in the subway tunnels of NYC. Though they're infamous for telling endless tales of wisdom gleaned late at night on the L and psychic encounters on the M, all of the Luddites can agree that there's simply no train in New York like the Jesus Train.
