Former STABBING WESTWARD Keyboardist Lands In The Reunited THE CLAY PEOPLE

Former STABBING WESTWARD keyboardist/programmer Walter Flakus has joined the reunited THE CLAY PEOPLE, according to

"I wanted to let you know that I'm diving back into the pool," Flakus wrote in a message posted on the site. "It's funny that I would end up in Albany. Back in 1994, fellow industrial band, THE CLAY PEOPLE, opened a show for us at The Reptile House in Grand Rapids, MI. I remember show very well and I remember hanging with the guys in THE CLAY PEOPLE and being showered with demos and t-shirts. They followed a very similar path as STABBING however remaining slightly darker and heavier. After a one-record stint on Mercury, THE CLAY PEOPLE hung it up coincidentally, about a year ago. Singer Dan Neet has spent the past year working with Jason Novak of ACUMEN NATION on the new IRON LUNG CORP. record. Last week it was decided to resurrect THE CLAY PEOPLE with myself in tow to help elevate the band to the next level. I've heard the demos and the work has begun. It sounds like we're on course to make a record that has a lot more to do with 'Ungod' than anything else. I find it all very exciting. These guys are good players and write some phat riffs. Has anyone heard the unreleased HEADHUNTER demos with 'My X-Plodding Head' and 'Broken Kisses'? Talk about riffs!"

In related news, THE DREAMING, the new project featuring former STABBING WESTWARD frontman Chris Hall and ex-STAR 69 members Johnny Haro (drums) and Warren Huart (guitar), have lined up the following dates during May/June:

May 01 - Hollywood, CA @ The Gig
