BIO

The Defectors play 60's inspired garage punk in the vein of bands like Miracle Workers, Fuzztones, Gravedigger V and Stomachmouths. They're into the sounds and looks of 60's instruments like the Farfisa Organ, Rickenbacker guitar and bass, Vox guitar and Fender amplifiers, also using the effects of the period - fuzzboxes, trems, spring reverbs and tape echo - to re-create the sounds they admire.

The members are all "defected" from other bands to join under the psychedelic banner and spread the garage virus. The band was formed in 1997 as Thee Fuzz Arts by Martin Budde (drums/organ) (of psychobilly band Godless Wicked Creeps), Nikolaj Grummesgaard (guitar/vocals)(now guitarist in Godless Wicked Creeps) and Torben Skovgaard (bass). This constellation contributed a song to a tribute album to local football team AGF, before recruiting Jonas Jorgensen to play drums. This freed Martin to concentrate on plying organ and enabled the band to play live. Shortly after that Mort Harder took over lead vocal chores and they changed the band name to the Persuaders. The Persuaders was, however, by no means an original band name, it turned out, so late 1998 saw them change again - this time to their present name. Nikolaj left to join Godless Wicked Creeps shortly thereafter, and he was replaced by Mik Stegger. They recorded their debut album early 1999. They worked for a month on old analogue equipment, which means they spent five days recording and 26 days soldering things that were broke.

The album is called "Let Me" and it is released by danish label E.S.P.Recordings/Kick Music (www.kick.dk/defectors). It is available on both CD and vinyl. They plan to go on the road to support the album - in Denmark and abroad. Look out for concert dates.
