The Cut Hands project was founded by William Bennett in 2007 initally to experiment further with his obscure collection of Ghanaian percussion instruments in free-form work-outs, alongside other types of (genuine) sound experimenting. In 2002, being inspired by Haitian vaudou musicians' capacity to make intensely powerful music with almost no technology, William Bennett first employed djembes and doundouns on the classic Wriggle Like A Fucking Eel 12" by Whitehouse, in what was seen as a radical musical direction by many in the wider noise/industrial scene. The fruit of 8 years of recordings finally culminated in 2011's critically acclaimed and best-selling release Afro Noise I. The new Black Mamba album followed on from the eponymous 12" single released by Blackest Ever Black in summer 2012. The music of Cut Hands features as soundtracks to award-winning VBS docmentary films (also shown on CNN): Siberia: Krokodil Tears (2011); Inside Syria (2011); Mandingo (2010); Liberia (2009); and the just-released highly-acclaimed Snoop Dogg documentary Reincarnated (2012).
