Or so they say…we’re not sure that when the name was coined it was meant to be literal. In fact, truth be told, we don’t even know where the name came from. Because like nearly everything else about DAFP – the answers to any questions just seem to lead to more questions…
What we do know to be fact. There are three of them. We know they were formed in Gent, Belgium sometime between 2007 and 2008. They recorded both their albums with one Niek Meul, himself from Gent music royalty. We know that somewhere deep in the anals of their history, one member was once once a member of Soulwax. We know this record is their second. And there the trail gets – well, blurry…
“Master” produced by Niek Meul and Reinhard Vanbergen (both Das Pop) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana’s Nevermind..), pun intended, is a masterpiece, just like that. As bold as brass it’s a whirlwind of timeless and audacious sonic attacks on mediocrity and complacency. ”Master” combines the urgency and creative need of your favourite punk records with the unbounded musicality of like-minded free spirits like Fantomas/Tomahawak, Mastodon or even John Zorn. We’re not even going to mention the Melvins or Masters of Reality (featuring the band’s long-time supporter Chris Goss) but fuck it, we just did…“Master” is passionate and pure just like it’s makers. This instant classic of epic and heavy sonic beauty is now also available on top quality final. To enhance your acoustic experience “Master” was especially re-mastered for vinyl.
