Blind Idiot God is an instrumental rock trio formed in the mid 1980s in St. Louis, Missouri by guitarist Andy Hawkins,
bassist Gabe Katz and drummer Ted Epstein. They socialized with the St. Louis hardcore punk scene, including
members of Drunks with Guns and Ultraman. After hearing their self-produced cassette demo, Greg Ginn of Black
Flag, signed them to SST Records, and the band moved to Brooklyn. In 2006, Blind Idiot God reunited after roughly a
decade of inactivity, with Tim Wyskida (of Khanate) replacing Epstein.
