about

DRUNK DAD, Portland's one and only fuck-you-all-wave group, is on a seemingly unstoppable trajectory. In the last two years they have hard-won the turned heads and knowing nods of enthusiastic youngsters and old cynics alike with their all-out assaults on rock and convention. Their art-fucked sludgy hardcore free-jazz noise rock is as unclassifiable as it is enthralling, the splendid result of a rare new band that not only knows what it wants but how to get it. With their first LP Ripper Killer, DRUNK DAD breaks down the stifling genre walls of yore and rewires the wreckage into an mega-heavy alloy of scuzz, filth, and noise in a knock-down, drag-out war of ill will wrapped in a nasty bow. Crusty riffs, off-kilter sludge hooks, bombing-and-weaving bass, cracked-out noise (aided by horrorshow harsh noiser REDNECK), and scorched solos collide over drums that run the gamut from breakneck beatdowns to thuggish clockings to gonzo new math complifuckingcations. Throw in vocals that shift through gruff rock, degenerate screams, morose croons, pulp poetry, and more to push and pull it all together, and you got yourself one savage platter to devour. It rips, it kills, it's DRUNK DAD.

about

Drunk Dad Portland, Oregon

In a surprisingly short time DRUNK DAD went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. ... more
