    Material Biography

    Experimental punk-jazz-funk-noise-electro band, founded in 1978 by bassist Bill Laswell and keyboard player Michael Beinhorn.

    Material was not only a band name, but an alias for the intensive production work of the duo (for Afrika Bambaataa, Herbie Hancock, Nona Hendryx ...).

    Michael Beinhorn left the 'band' in 1985. In the 90s, Material became more world/indian/afro/ambient/dub-oriented.
