Charming Assistant is an experimental noise/ambient band from Bratislava, Slovakia. Acidmilk and Avoided are the core band members, with frequent help from hLukas of the famous Morda Noise System. Relentless walls of electronic noise are combined with heavily effected instruments which include violin, didgeridoo, helicon from a vacuum cleaner and sparse use of vocals and demented chaotic screams. They have a couple of minimalistic recordings, but they prefer playng live, for the most part improvised performances coupled with absurd video projections. This debut EP called consists of 5 takes from various live performances, moving from loud noise through psychedelic ambiency into melodic and sometimes industrial rhythmic takes.
