Loto Ball is best known for his work singing and performing for San Francisco Bay Area death-punk band The Phantom Limbs. During his time with The Phantom Limbs (in which he was sometimes known as “Hopeless”), Loto Ball’s visceral expression of existential distress laced with black comedy, helped earned them countless amounts of praise.

Loto Ball is best known for his work singing and performing for San Francisco Bay Area death-punk band The Phantom Limbs. During his time with The Phantom Limbs (in which he was sometimes known as “Hopeless”), Loto Ball’s visceral expression of existential distress laced with black comedy, helped earned them countless amounts of praise. After years of touring nonstop, Loto Ball left the Limbs in 2005 to move to Chicago and pursue other ventures. Loto Ball has spent his time in Chicago working with local artists on various projects, including founding an art gallery/music venue (Reversible Eye), collaborating on a 800 foot public mural (Bloomingdale Trail), personal masseuse for Mayor Richard Daley, performing with puppets (Scary Toesies), working as an activist for disability rights and quality of life issues, as well playing trumpet for a 30-person marching band (Mucca Pazza).

Loto Ball created the Loto Ball Show in 2005. It has taken on many forms, but has now evolved into an energetic rock band that screams out much of the same ferocity as The Phantom Limbs but brings in more variety in mood, more shifts in volume and pace, and more eclectic sounds: A key-board driven form of No-Wave post-punk with hints of jazz syncopation and Middle-Eastern scales.
