Biography

Drezniak was a / band from . With Chuck E. Whore (Chuck White)on Bass & Vocals, Den I. Phosphate (Dennis McCarthy)on Guitar & Vocals, Nikki Razor (Carmen Marusich)on Keys & Vocals, Tommy B. (Tommy Brosnan)on Guitar, and Yippa (Paul I.)on Drums. They formed in 1980 while some of them were still in high school. Inspired by early Ultravox, the Buzzcocks, and The Kinks, they pioneered a brand of synth-driven electro-garage loved by some and feared by many. They recklessly performed before audiences far and wide, risking their necks to enlighten even axe-wielding lumberjacks who resisted, and could only describe their sound as “bip-bip shit.” As and grew more popular in the Boston scene, Drezniak was booked consistently, sharing bills with legendary local acts such as The Atlantics, The Neighborhoods, The Real Kids, Willie Loco Alexander, November Group, Boys’ Life, and The Prime Movers, to name a few. In 1983 Drezniak appeared on MTV’s basement tapes with the songs, “Change of Heart” and “Positive Attraction,” affirming that their frenetic brand of had finally struck a chord with cynical rednecks and pogo-ing Devo-lovers alike.

If you missed them in the ’80s, you might just get a chance to experience Drezniak live in the not-too-distant future. Three original members (Chuck, Den, and Nikki) are casually rehearsing again…in Chuck’s basement, of course.
