Strange connections

In my travels I have come across some strange connections between artists I wouldn't expect:

Engineer Rob Campanella mastered Chief Nowhere's debut, as well as Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Quarter After, and Mia Doi Todd.

Chi-A.D. is Dave Young. He started out playing synths for black metal pioneers Venom under the pseudonym VMX. Later well known for being a part of UK Hardtrance act The Secret and Goa act Chi-A.D.

Jesse Sykes, relation to Jamie Sykes of Burning Witch?

Galloglass features guest solos by Curran Murphy (Nevermore, Annihilator) and Jeff Waters (Annihilator) on their second album, Heavenseeker.

Outstanding stoner doom outfit Witch consists of members from Dinosaur Jr. and Feathers, among others.

BS 2000 once toured with Le Tigre in Japan. This might not strike you as odd if you didn't know that BS 2000 is the side project of the Beastie Boys ' own Adam "Adrock" Horovitz. BS 2000 also contributed the track The Scrappy to the Jet Set Radio Future soundtrack.

Toni Halliday, lead singer of Curve, is the vocalist in the Freaky Chakra track Budded on Earth to Bloom in Heaven, which was remixed by Single Cell Orchestra on the Budded on Earth to Bloom in Heaven EP.

Dntel (Jimmy Tamborello), who did the programming for The Postal Service and has done occasional work with Death Cab for Cutie, features the vocal talent of Mia Doi Todd on the track Anywhere Anyone. Mia's fifth album, Manzanita, features appearances by members of Dead Meadow, Beachwood Sparks, and Future Pigeon.
