"Panther is the two-headed effort of Charlie Salas-Humara (The Planet The) on vocals, cello, guitar, and keys and Joe Kelly (31 Knots) on drums. But even when it was Charlie's solo effort, he was never really alone. Whether live or on record, there was a sense that Panther was being overtaken by something, not an alter-ego, this was something else. Think Ian Curtis' convulsive intensity and James Brown's spastic swagger, and you still won't have Panther, but a sense of what-the-fuckness that all of them seem to call up. The early recordings born in the basements and warehouses of Portland, OR around 2001 brought a new brand of broken electro that when coupled with the lunatic immediacy of his modern dance meltdowns, defied categorization entirely. Panther landed on bills as varied as opening slots from Peaches to Wolf Eyes. The monstrous throb of the beats matched by Charlie's intensity bring a sense of religious visitation to any room Panther humps the floor in. His panic-driven falsetto howling non-sequiturs about paranoid sexuality make his jams hysterical, compelling, but most importantly, danceable."
