  • Members

Diagram Brothers (sometimes spelled as The Diagram Bros; Manchester, United Kingdom, 1979-1982), were a high-concept post-punk group made up of four arty science students who devised strict constricts for their songs and diagrammed the planned unfoldings of their studio sessions, interviews, shows, and record sleeves. Says bassist Andy Diagram (also trumpet player for Dislocation Dance):

"The music was made to a strict formula, or set of rules. All the guitar chords were based on discordant notes, all the beats were very simple rock or disco, and all the words were very straightforward and down to earth."

So it's twistedly straightfoward, it's got beat, and it's got loads of jagged, dissonant guitar, which all adds up to awesome.

Line-up:
Fraser Diagram (Lead Vocals, Guitar)
Laurence Diagram (Guitar)
Jason Diagram (Bass)
