DOES IT OFFEND YOU, YEAH? You Have No Idea What You Are Getting Yourself Into
Does It Offend You, Yeah? have taken the dance music blueprint laid down by Justice, The Neptunes, and DFA 1979 and have given it a complete fuckover. They sound dance. They act rock. DIOY,Y? have loaded up on Prodigy, Daft Punk, and Devo records, pulled an all nighter with some broken gear and turned out the dirtiest clean dancefloor track "Lets Make Out " since Gary Numan made stoned Brit teens get all sweet and sour to " My Shadow in Vain".
Underground clubs have been pummeled by tracks from Does It Offend You, Yeah since 2006. Rob Bloomfield, Morgan Quaintance, Dan Coop and James Rushent of DIOY,Y? have remixed Bloc Party, The Raconteurs and Muse., Equal parts Breakfast Club and Live Aid concert DIOY,Y? have turned the screws on the Cure, Bowie and Talking Heads influences and wrap the 80's package in a 00's plastic bag. " We Are Rock Stars " and " Feels Good Being Bad" deliver huge choruses that incite moshpits, screaming and stage smashing (UK term for destroying property) during their live show which has been described as "amazing" and "insanely dangerous". Does It Offend You, Yeah? are not your typical skinny, subway tanned scenesters but regular kids interested in kicking your ass with synths and Marshall stacks. Their debut on Almost Gold, " You Have No Idea What You Are Getting Yourself Into" comes out on April15.
‘An intergalactic dog fight between primal rock and highly-evolved dance.’ The UK’s best new party band.’ NME
'It was dirty, sleazy robo-rock at its best; and when they launched into a hectic rendition of their latest single, Lets Make Out, the frenzy continued. The throng of convulsing bodies thrashed about unrelentingly, and the venue was transformed into one big arcade game ... There's no escaping the beat..' -BBC (live show review)
'Responsible for some of the crunchiest, filthiest -sounding electro out there.' -DISORDER
'Like Chemical Brothers' "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" before it - with five talons fellating the mainstream and as many satisfying any warehouse party worth its electricity bill.' -LOUD AND QUIET on LMO
