• a project founded in 2007 heavily inspired by William Bennett's fascination for Haitian vaudou, deploying percussion in radical new ways, generating an intense sound unrivalled in its physical and emotional intensity
• in 2002, being inspired by Haitian vaudou musicians’ capacity to make intensely powerful music with almost no technology, William Bennett first employed djembes and doundouns on the classic Wriggle Like A Fucking Eel 12” by Whitehouse, in what was seen as a radical musical direction by many in the wider noise/industrial scene
• the name was derived from the song Cut Hands Has The Solution by his original Whitehouse project
• 200+ live performances, many at prestigious world venues and festivals in Japan, USA, South America, Australia, and all over Europe including most recently at London’s South Bank Centre as special guest of Grace Jones at Meltdown Festival
• the music of Cut Hands features in soundtracks to award-winning VBS docmentary films (also shown on CNN): Siberia: Krokodil Tears (2011); Inside Syria (2011); Mandingo (2010); Liberia (2009); Snoop Dogg documentary Reincarnated (2013); Lil Bub & Friendz (2013); Kings Of Cannabis (2013); also Julien Temple’s documentary Glastonbury in addition to other internationally-acclaimed films
