J Lesser is an indie sampler terrorist stranded halfway between the heavily fraternal scenes organized around conventional drum'n'bass and unconventional noise. His formative career includes time spent playing with a Metallica cover band in San Diego, and with figures who later formed the indie bands Crash Worship and A Minor Forest. Lesser contributed the debut release for the San Diego indie-electronica label Vinyl Communications with 1996's Excommunicate the Cult of the Live Band. Gigolo Cop and Welcome to the American Experience followed in one-year intervals, while a split-compact-disc with Kid-606 was released in 1998. Mensa Dance Squad appeared three years later. Besides appearing with Matmos and Kid-606 as DISC, Lesser has also recorded as 157 and Backfire.
