Aloysius Scrimshaw is an American experimental musician from Fort Bragg, California sometimes known by his stage name Mr. Scrimshaw (originally Mr. Scrimshaw El músico muerto). Originally working as a replacement guitarist for the Gothic rock band Yankem and The Jobbers, Scrimshaw has been a major driving force in experimental music and underground hip hop since 2008 producing for several notable rappers, such as Mzak Kraze, Shipititez tha Viruz and Weird Naked Indians, among others.

Life and career[edit | hide all | hide | edit source]

Born in Fort Bragg, California, Scrimshaw is the son of food scientist Nevin S. Scrimshaw[1] and American actress Mädchen Amick. Scrimshaw was moved to Reno when he was six years old, where he was enrolled in the University of Nevada, Reno after showing great musical promise. Getting involved with the experimental music scene of Reno at an early age, Scrimshaw decided to pursue a career in music after being expelled from several schools for problems with authority. At his 18th birthday party, he met Yankem and The Jobbers vocalist Issac Kane, who convinced Scrimshaw to join the band. The two quickly became friends and proceeded to tour together off and on until their official disbandment in 2016.

In October 2016, Scrimshaw announced that he was working on the debut solo Aloysius Scrimshaw studio album, titled Experimental expression, apparitions and various pernicious nonsense.[2] On January 10, 2017 Scrimshaw announced via his Twitter page that Experimental Expressions, apparitions and various pernicious nonsense was officially complete. The album was later released to music retailers on February 11.

The music video for the song 299792458 m / s (apparitions) was filmed and released in March 2017.
