Guerilla Welfare was an independent electronic music duo from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The duo produced music from processed acoustic and electric instruments with spoken word and field recordings of acoustic "world" instruments and singing samples. The resulting sound was a pan-ethnic and somewhat experimental sound.[1] The principal members in Guerilla Welfare were Brian Schultze and Curtis Ruptash,[2][3] both of whom previously were members of Stony Plain Records recording artists Subtle Hints. Guerilla Welfare was active between 1986 through to 1995, when Ruptash relocated to Chicago.

The pair released two albums through their self-created label He Dead.[4]
