Telephone Jim Jesus
Telephone Jim Jesus
Chadwick reacquainted himself by way of Valerio's vast collecton of "underground tapes." Meanwhile, he bonded with Bryant in a failed attempt at reading the bible in order to outwit the religious zealots. Before long, with Chadwick on guitar, Valerio on drums and Bryant on vocals, the trio formed the hardcore band Unfit. Eventually, Unfit dissolved and the group started experimenting with electronic equipment and hip hop, which led to the formation of Restiform Bodies. An essential element in the group, Telephone Jim Jesus is relied upon for much of the group's melodies, effects, distortion and texture, as well as more organic elements, such as bass and guitar. While not recording or performing with passage or restiform bodies, Chadwick has been slowly amassing a solo instrumental debut titled A Point Too Far To Astronaut, as well as continuously working on production for Sole's upcoming album. Telephone Jim Jesus co-produced the restiform bodies self titled debut (6months), Sun Hop Flat (self-release) and the Newbliette LP (Subversive).

He lent a hand in the recording of three tracks on passage's debut Forcefield Kids (anticon), including "Old Aunt Mary," "Suffragrette" and "Pail of Air." And he also made several appearances on sole's mansbestfriend record (morr music). More recently, he assisted alias on a track for the upcoming Alias & Tarsier record (anticon). Telephone Jim Jesus has toured the United States three times. Once in 2002 opening for Sole as Restiform Bodies and then again in 2003 as part of both Alias's and Sole's sets and most recently with passage and Restiform Bodies.
