New album "Hairline Ego Trip" out on June 4th!
Darren 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.
Speaking of the forthcoming Hairline Ego Trip album, Darren says...
"This album is about the disconnect the human race has built between themselves and the natural world. How we are collapsing as a society through digital technology, capitalism, religion, nationalism. The failures of the human psych and the beauty in the world around us we fail to see."
Dez Dare helps to shine a light on that beauty. A wonderfully vibrant, colourful world of sound and vision.
Transmission one ends here. Tune in soon for the next pulsation.
