DFMK from Baja Califas

Started a few years back ( three to be exact), by Marco and Angel, as a Hardcore Punk super group, with an unafraid attempt to display a little 70’s riff based rock influence (ala Black Sabbath). There were a lot of line-up changes back in those days, including people entering and leaving the band like it was a fucking cheap motel, leaving only Marco and Angel as the original remaining members. It took a lot substance experimentation, wild partying, prison and detox hospitals to get the band back on track and with a sound set on simple Rock n’ Roll with that Punk Rock attitude. Having gone after all that trouble, finally they found a lasting and solid line up on Marco’s little bro Alex teaming up with his previously mentioned elder on the rhythm section. A gnarly dude that goes by a lot of aliases, but better known as Boti or Tacubo joined later on second guitar, which brought a cleaner, more Ramonesque guitar approach with a slight touch of surf to the band’s sound. And last but not least, the vocalist and the main man on stage, Mr. Cap (aka Cachuchin), unashamed to reveal a soulful and emotive singing style, much similar to early proto-punk singers, but in its own unique way. With these five elements they set out to go beyond the limits of all time low Rn’R standards. Playing around all the local neighborhoods relentlessly and putting out a self-released first Demo entitled “Manual Practico Para la Autodestruccion”. Translated to “A Practical Guide to Self-Destruction”. Lyrical themes range from pretty much each member’s personal experience. You don’t get Political Punk statements, Youth Anthems or Whiny songs about love and break ups, simply, a straightforward, I don’t give a fuck attitude.
