CUT HANDS – AFRO NOISE I
Exceprt from The Wire Magazine review from June 2011 by Nina Power

From power electronics to Afro Noise, from “Bloodfucking” and “A Cunt Like You” to polyrhythms and the complete absence of a single offensive lyric, the Whitehouse–Cut Hands trajectory stops off at a voice speaking in an African language on “Munkisi Munkondi” (which is also on Whitehouse’s Bird Seed from 2003). I’m assuming it isn’t shouting insults, but I could be wrong.

William Bennett, with or without Whitehouse, is a complicated man. Cut Hands, his latest project, might initially seem like a departure from the harassing Noise-critique of Whitehouse, but there are continuities. Bennett said in a recent online interview that Cut Hands consists “of obscure African percussion elements in freeform workouts with almost any other type of (genuine) sound experimenting”, claiming this style could be traced back as far as Whitehouse tracks like “Wriggle Like A Fucking Eel” from 2001 (and let’s not forget Susan Lawly’s 1997 compilation Extreme Music From Africa). The links are sometimes subtle, sometimes blinding: the propulsive force of the Afro Noise sound, via complex rhythms and absorbing sonic patterns, is certainly in keeping with earlier Whitehouse material, even if percussion barely featured in it before 2000. Either way, Afro Noise I has been a long time in the making – some tracks were begun as far back as 2003 – and Bennett has arrived at something unique through mixing djembes, doundouns and ksings (drums and their metal accoutrements) with motioncontrolled synths and electronics.
