Dope Body + Atatakakatta
Dope Body Baltimore, USA
Dope Body, Baltimore, MD’s four-headed beast, writhe under their own influences and experiments, swinging from gutterish sludge-punk to snake charmer-on-fire within the confines of a single tune. Rather than compare their ferocity to another contender, just know that Dope Body is punk spelled other-wards and standing on its hands.
Dope Body fired their second salvo, Natural History, on May 22nd. Borne in 2008 from the dance-friendly confines of the city’s Wham City scene, this unclassifiable heavy ventured out into the night to find more like-minds, but came back empty-handed – i.e., they stand alone. Evolving from blasting three-piece to blistering four-piece, they enjoy writing their own songs, touring endlessly, having fun and pummeling basement parties with a gleeful, wide-eyed fanaticism that the more reasonable among us mightmistake for insanity (it ain’t entirely so).
Dope Body released their LP debut Nupping [Hit Dat/Hoss] in 2011. Natural History is their first release on Drag City.
Highly recommended for Fans of: Jesus Lizard, Double Dagger, Metz, Unsane, Fugazi, Pissed Jeans, etc.
