Smell & Quim

Profile:

Smell & Quim is a British freeform improvised noise band from Batley, West Yorkshire, originally formed in 1987 by Milovan Srdenovic and Paul Nonnen. The duo recorded and released their debut album The English Method on their own newly established label Stinky Horse Fuck in '88. The name of the band is a parody of a then-popular female pop duo Mel & Kim. The collective's creative output is often associated with controversial and taboo topics like fetishism, alcoholism, pornography, and necrophilia. Srdenovic and Nonnen played together for several years and recorded three albums. After producing The Jissom Killers LP on a German label Tesco Organisation in 1992, Paul Nonnen left the band, and Srdenovic continued recording as Smell & Quim with D. Foist.

The band has a rotating cast of members performing and recordings with Milovan Srdenovic, but the core line-up currently include Michael Gillham, Stewart Walden (also known as Stewart Keith and Stewart Bizarro), Simon 'Harris', and Kate Fear.

Their live shows (often featuring bizarre costumes and masks) are often influenced by performers like Throbbing Gristle, Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell and Hugh Metcalfe. In 2007, Smell & Quim notoriously led to the cancellation of the entire Deaf Forever Festival in Leeds, after they started mutilating a pig's head on stage and attempted to set it on fire.
