WHAT IN GODâ€™S NAME DOES DFMK MEAN?!
Tijuana Mexico, besides being the most visited border in the world, having donkeys disguised as zebras and being a haven for drugs, cheapÂ prostitution and crime, it can sometimes be the cradle of some of the most underrated rock and roll in Mexico.Â I mean, even Santana learned how to play guitar in the downtown strip clubs and no one else, besides we locals, know that. This statement can be well attested to in the all out chord attack of DFMKâ€™s Rock & Roll sound.
The band was started several years back in 2009, by Marco as the bass player and Angel as the guitar player, in the efforts to be a hardcore punk super group, unafraid to display a little 70â€™s riff based rock influence (ala Black Sabbath). There were a lot of line-up changes back in those days, including people entering and exiting the band like it was a fucking cheap motel, leaving only Marco and Angel as the original remaining members. It took a lot of substance experimentation, wild partying, prison and detox hospitals to get the band back on track and with a sound set on simple Rock nâ€™ Roll with that Punk Rock attitude.
Having gone through all that trouble, they finally found a lasting and solid line up in Marcoâ€™s sibling, Alex, teaming up with his previously mentioned elder on the rhythm section playing drums. A gnarly dude that goes by a lot of aliases, but better known as Boti, joined later on second guitar, which brought a cleaner, more Ramonesque guitar approach with a slight touch of surf to the bandâ€™s sound. And last but not least, the vocalist and the main man on stage, Mr. Cap aka Cachuchin, unashamed to reveal a soulful and emotive singing style, similar to early proto-punk singers, in its own way. With these five elements they set out to go beyond the limits of all time low rock & roll standards. The lyrical themes vary as widely as each memberâ€™s personal experience. You donâ€™t get Political Punk statements, Youth Anthems or Whiny songs about love and break ups, simply, a straightforward, I donâ€™t give a fuck attitude.
In regards to the name DFMK, it really does not mean anything in particular, long time ago when Marco and Angel started the band they had a name for their crew which was named â€œDiario Fumo Mota Krewâ€ or â€œDiario Fumo Mota Karnalâ€, which loosely it translates to â€œDaily I Smoke Weed Crewâ€ or â€œDaily I Smoke Weed, Brotherâ€. However, in time it really lost its meaning and is encourage to for anybody to create their own interpretations, here are some examples:
â€œDonâ€™t Fuck My Kidsâ€ â€œDirty Filthy Mexican Kabronesâ€ â€œDamned Fucking Mexican Kidsâ€ â€œDistrito Federal Mortal Kombatâ€ â€œDionisio Formo Mi Karacterâ€ â€œDonâ€™t Fondle My Kansâ€, etcetera, etcetera.
At the end the name does not matter, what matters is if you ROCK, do not forget to ROLL with the music that you create.
