Biography

NorCal meets SoCal; shredding Japanese technique.

Out of the ashes of Dosage and Usage (dance-punk bands) Dmonstrations arises. Resting between punk and avant-garde, the band wastes little time in getting their point across. The dance-punk sounds of earlier years have been left behind for a full on sonic assault.

“Night Trrors, Shock!”, is the first full-length album by San Diego-based trio Dmonstrations. After the release of their self-titled debut EP, critics tagged the trio an ‘art-punk’ outfit, and Dmonstrations were subsequently compared to the likes of Melt Banana, Ex Models, Minutemen, Deerhoof, and Arab On Radar. The band’s second year saw them develop their own, more unique formula, although the ‘art-punk’ label seems destined to stay-put. Constructed from a tightly-wound bass-guitar-drums palette, their sound ‘demonstrates’ both intense accuracy and, especially vocally, a panic-inducing degree of mayhem. The album materialized and is, according to the band, a direct reflection of what they’d endured over the previous year. The LP is essentially the story of a would-be insomniacs struggle with terrifying nightmares by fighting sleep at any expense. This character decides to document his own personal war on sleep-induced terrorism, and ultimately the disintegration of his own sanity.

Dmonstrations, a Southern California/Tokyo post-punk band, tries to carve a place for themselves in the same space as Deerhoof, but end up just sounding like a tribute band.
