Dan formed his first band, The Breakables, at age 3, featuring himself on Yamaha electric organ, bass drum and nudity. After waiting a decade for the listening audience to catch up with his avant garde leanings, Dan again turned his hand to music. Inspired by the Beatles' Revolution No. 9, the proximity of his father's Sony 777 reel-to-reel tape deck and copious amounts of 1/4" recording tape courtesy of the German Press Review, a series of music concrete compositions ensued, again leaving most listeners stunned.
The desired effect having been achieved, Dan moved on to new challenges, learning guitar, bass and enough piano to fool people who don't know any better. Subsequent years saw him performing in the greater Washington, DC area with Mao & the Modern Conveniences, Suburban Onslaught, Age of Consent, Danger Ritual, Hooka, Seraphim and Absolutely Boxspring. Since moving to Los Angeles, Dan has kept himself busy with The Dorian Wood Guilt Trip in addition to 8 Minute Morning, and continues his quest to find sounds that will make a dog's head turn sideways.
The picture above shows the last incarnation of my "tap dancing" pedalboard (plus stray effects it had picked up by the side of the road). Now I've got an Axess Electronics switching system and an NGM Pedalboards case to put it in. Check out this monstrosity here.
