In 1992, they signed to Megaforce Records and released their self-titled CD in 1993. They toured with White Zombie, Danzig, Flotsam and Jetsam, Mindfunk, and performed on the '92 Lollapalooza side stage. Videos for F Sharp and Buffalo appeared on MTV. Known for their dark, earthy atmospherics of guitar feedback, abusive attacks of wah-wah, tribal/tuetonic rhythms, rolling melodic basslines, and wavering, lyrically obscured vocals. Combining musical styles from rock to metal, from alternative to psychedelic, all the while infusing their own signature feedback tapestry throughout. Nudeswirl never reached their full potential as they disbanded in 1995 after their only major label release.
Considered a cult band, almost 20 years later, other bands such as Tool and Radiohead cite Nudeswirl amongst their influences and they have been hailed by Perry Farrell, John Frusciante, and The Edge. Nudeswirl's CD has been out of print, which relegates them further into the depths of cult obscurity. Guitarist Dizzy Cortright went on to play with The Mad Daddies. Vocalist/guitarist Shane M.
Green went on to play with Slaprocket and Lord Sterling. Bassist Chris Wargo formed his band Love Gas and opened Gas Works recording studio. The last known performance by the band was a reunion show in the mid 2000s at The Court Tavern in New Brunswick, New Jersey. A video exists of the band playing the Dynamo Open Air Festival in the Netherlands in front of 30,000 people and an MTV Europe interview exists as well. Read more on Last.fm.
