Blectum from Blechdom was an experimental electronic music duo, formed in 1998 by Kristin Erickson (Kevin Blechdom) and Bevin Kelley (Blevin Blectum) and disbanded in 2001. Erickson and Kelley met at the Mills College in Oakland, California. They initially performed locally, in the San Francisco Bay Area and recorded their first EP, titled Snauses and Mallards, in March 2000, followed by their first full length album The Messy Jesse Fiesta (that won second prize for Digital Music at Ars Electronica in 2001) later that year. The duo broke up in May 2001, with both artists retaining their noms de plume and continuing work on solo projects.

Their music has been described as exceptionally irreverent and humorous and though experimental in nature, with heavy glitch influences, never pretentious and always rhythmic.
