Dog Fashion Disco - _The Embryo's in Bloom_
(Outer Loop Records, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (
Strange band name. Strange album title as well. And the music? You guessed it... strange. With some of the most bizarre song ideas since the early days of Strapping Young Lad, DFD is a unique set of individuals setting out to make not only heavy music, but music with enough diversity to not allow a genre tag to be placed upon it. Bingo! They succeeded. The closest band I can pinpoint them as being similar to is the ultra heavy 'n' cool outfit System of a Down, as well as maybe a touch of Faith No More. Will the hard rock / metal world be open to the music of DFD? Probably not. I mean, can you see denim 'n' leather metal heads welcoming the baggy shorts and Hawaiian shirt wearing freak into their fold? I don't think so -- but anything can happen. Best of luck to DFD, 'cause they seem to have a blast at what they do and they sure let me onto some weird musical numbers such as "Leper Friend", "Toothless Dream" and "Pervert". Who said heavy music couldn't be weird?
