The DHDFD's (rumored to mean "Don't Have Dogs For Dinner") are a four-piece
New Zealandrock band who formed during the summer of 2005 in the Point Chevalierarea of Auckland. They released a five track E.P, "Pastor of Muppets", in September 2006 which has subsequently sold out, going on to record a video for their single "Pompino's Magical Blast", receiving considerable rotation on Alt TV.
The band was met with some criticism from the Auckland music scene for dismissing their original drummer and rhythm guitarist with detractors citing this as being a means of 'garnering attention and boosting their image.' Despite this, the band have remained a popular part of the community playing alongside such internationally recognized acts as
The King Brothers, The Mint Chicksand local artists White Birds and Lemons, The Coshercot Honeysbut to name a few.
Their live shows have drawn both acclaim and criticism for their anarchic, chaotic performance - in mid 2008, Scott Brown's ascension of the lighting rig at Auckland venue Space saw the group barred for the foreseeable future.
The DHDFD's cite influences as diverse as
Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Stiff Little Fingers, Fantomas, and Primus. Their energetic live shows have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Flag, The Stoogesand 2008 touring buddies The King Brothers.
