Released: 2009-12-09

Runtime: 36:10

Here's a somewhat controversial music genre of electrogrind and breakcore. Let me introduce you the most abrasive-sounding music genres ever made, incorporating electronic elements such as samplings, drum-machines and lots of noisy grunts and growls, .

A swedish one-man project from Gothenburg. Only band-member Bulldozerman / Klas-Benny (Dennis Woodroff) - he uses several different names in each project he is involved with. The Toilet is a musical project with blipblop-influences and various forms of audio-collages which forms a huge chaotic poop-monster from hell.

The easiest way to explain it? Imagine yourself a colossal and incoherent mix between Mariah Carey, Bing Crosby, The Captain Kirk on LSD Experience and Tunnan & Moroten. He often recycles five or more different songs and cut them up and make his own stinking versions of them. The Toilet is very underground and has participated in unknown locations in Sweden since 2005. In 2007 he was also featured on a radio interview in Barcelona in a program that calls theirself for Radio Bronka.

Woodroff's artistry is signed by Direktörn Jeff on the swedish music-label Mutantswing. His very first release was a live performance named 'Monsters with Machines', distributed by Tempo Blaster Records. It was an American live-tour he made in 2004 together with The Smile Adventure, Electrocutionerds and The Mourningside Excursion.

During this period, The Toilet already had completed a whole bunch of songs that contained hints of electronic drumbeats and cut-outs of 70’s disco and traditional German dance bands. The performance was violently executed and crazy humorous at the same time. When I talked to Dennis in person last year he told me that he was constantly drunk during the journey and that he didn't remember a damn shit more than he was falling a sleep on the stage during his performance.

The fame spread further straight after his American live-tour and The Toilet has managed to sneak in to different compilation-albums, but in 2009 he finally released his first album "Bullshit Makes Flowers Grow" - an album with 18 lovely poop-songs with blip-blop chiptunes, classic disco characters together with breakcore-filled samples and lunatic crunchy grindcore vocals.

In Sweden, he performed a handful of concerts with various of his produced characters from Mutantswing and tried to keep Bulldozerman alive, but it's still unclear whether The Toilet is history or not, as he has various projects along with Direktörn Jeff and Ljudit Andersson. Today, Dennis other character is Klas-Benny, and he holds among bands like Lazer Zebra, Curt-Lazers and Michael Intergalaxon as well.
