Lurching out his Frankenstein’s monster of a studio built from old electrics, fuzz boxes and creepy puppets, arises Dez Dare. Buried deep in the bowels of Brighton, England, he has spent the last 2 years seething and spitting apathetic venom at the hyperbole that frames modern society and the comfort of the void that is the human condition. Dez Dare(aka Darren Smallman of BATTLE WORLDWIDE, Low Transit Industries, Thee Vinyl Creatures, The Sound Platform, Warped) grew up in Geelong, a port city located on Corio Bay and the Barwon River, in the state of Victoria, Australia where he became involved in the local punk and rock scene in 1990, playing in a band called Warped, sharing stages with the likes of 5678s, Fugazi, The Dirty Three and the Hard-ons, going on to play in multiple bands spewing out sludgy punk rock, heavy drone and noisy pop abundance. Darren was embedded in the scene, playing music, running labels (founding record label and touring company Low Transit Industries in 1999 working with bands such as The Essex Green, Lilys, Elf Power, Okkervil River, Of Montreal, Black Mountain, Trans Am and CW Stoneking) before moving to the UK in 2010 where he has operated ever since.2023 is a big year rising, two albums in the works and 6 animated film clips, all self-produced in his home studio and the road beckons. Armed with projections, his guitar and a bunch of noise boxes, he will travel far and wide delivering harmonic chaos to all.
Shakin’ butts since 2014.
