Dog Fashion Disco - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Dog Fashion Disco was a band from Baltimore, MD, notable for combining many different music styles (70's psychedelic, jazz, piano recital, circus music and vocals, among others) they are, howerever, primarily considered a metal band. The band's lyrical content is often highly esoteric and satirical, with constant tongue-in-cheek references to the occult, drug use, mutilation. They are often referred to as DFD and were originally called Hug the Retard, but changed their name to Dog Fashion Disco before releasing any material, as they felt the name Hug The Retard was too politically incorrect and might cost them fans. Also of note is the fact that they recorded a track with System of a Down frontman, Serj Tankian called "Mushroom Cult" on the album Anarchists of Good Taste, and often wrongly attributed to System of a Down, even though Serj Tankian was the only member to perform on the track.

They are currently signed to Rotten Records and completed their sixth studio album, Adultery, earlier this year. It was released on April 4th, 2006. They recently finished up their tour for the release of Adultery.

On December 5th, 2006 Todd smith sent out a bulletin on myspace stating that Dog Fashion Disco have called it a day.
