Fire At Will

This southwest Virginia four-piece draws stylistic cues from mid-nineties punk mixed with ska, hardcore, and metal. Much like their musical influences, their lyrical content runs the gamut as well. Songs about zombies, video games, and daytime television hosts are mixed with songs about more serious topics. Fire At Will is musically unique, often amusing, and always entertaining.

DDAA

The full name of DDAA is Déficit Des Années Antérieures.
DDAA was an obscure group of radical experimental noise makers used improvisation and collage to craft strange sounds and deconstructed songs for highly creative music that is as far off the path of conventions as that of similar but more known visionaries like the Residents and Nurse With Wound. In fact, DDAA roughly began the same time as NWW in the late '70s, started by three visual artists, Sylvie Martineau, Jean-Philippe Fee, and Jean-Luc Andre in Lion sur Mer, France.
