cut.rate.box took shape in Florida in the spring of 1989 and has since existed in Chicago, North Carolina, and New Orleans. In the fall of 2005, after hurricane Katrina upset the balance of time and space, cut.rate.box relocated to Austin, Texas where -- once again -- the band has become the solo project of founder g.wygonik.
g. takes influence from many diverse sources -- from the powerful atmospheres of Coil to the dancefloor energy of Front242 with a healthy dose of euro synthpop -- yet all the while maintaining a unique style of flowing energy and mature lyrical concept.
currently consists of g.wygonik.
cut.rate.box live performance is an emotion-filled and intense experience.
To maintain an original and expressive performance, each song in
the set is altered from the original album version. Because of the
intricacy of the material, pre-recorded backing tracks are used,
but are combined with spontaneously created synth, drum, samples,
and guitar manipulations.
The cut.rate.box live experience is the combustion of the ideas originally presented in CD form.
In addition to their numerous headlining slots around the world, cut.rate.box has performed as opening act for many industrial favorites including Nine Inch Nails, Pop Will Eat Itself, Pigface, Die Warsau, Alien Sex Fiend, Foetus, Sheep On Drugs, VAST, Covenant, VNV Nation, Beborn Beton, and Clear Vision.
cut.rate.box has label representation with WTII Records in North America.
