Darediablo is an instrumental rock trio from New York City. They draw influences from such 1970s heavy metal bands as Black Sabbath and AC/DC, their bassist/guitarist often wearing an AC/DC T-Shirt. Their catalog of music have all been independent releases on Orchard starting in 2000, with their latest being released on Southern Records main label (2003).



Darediablo started in 2000 with the personnel as listed: Jake Garcia (bass guitar), Matthew Holford (Fender Rhodes, organ), and Peter Karp (drums). They later changed drummers after their Sky Cohete/Subaquatico double-EP, enlisting Chad Royce for Bedtime Stories, and Feeding Frenzy, as well as for live performances. Jake Garcia also started to play double-neck bass/guitar combo for live performances, and played guitar in addition to bass on Bedtime Stories. For Feeding Frenzy, he played only guitar.

They contributed the song Shipping & Handling to the television show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, for February 2004.

Self description

Darediablo started out as a kind of mish-mosh of hard rock, jazz, and stoner rock, but have managed to focus these sounds into a style that's particularly suited to the instruments: an undersized bass ("the Midget") played with nods to Jake's guitar heroes, a Fender Rhodes and Hammond Organ pumped through reams of effects and distortion, and a drummer with an innate sense of rock and rhythmic subtlety.

We take it as a good sign that neither we nor any of our fans can describe our sound. We hear a lot of "kind of like MMW, but with a lot of AC/DC," and "like Pink Floyd, but with power chords." Whatever works for you, we say.

Time Out New York has said, "darediablo is a smoking, sometimes atmospheric, bass-drum-organ trio that comes on like Medeski Martin & Wood with an MC5 fixation."

That works, too. Our plan is to keep writing whatever kind of style this is, and playing it all over New York and the Northeast.

You can also hear us in soundtracks, especially on ESPN. We were in five episodes of ESPN's "The Life" in its first season, and we sound the opening notes of the documentary "The Wild Onion," which aired in November 2001.
