ĐBB, a 3-piece band based in Saigon – Vietnam, influenced by punk, grindcore, black metal, shoegaze, post-rock and many genres but like to call themselves a comedy band.
“The album, Nghèo Keo Dơ (poor, stingy, dirty) contains 16 improvised songs which has a certain feeling and certainly was a wonderful experience making improvised music, not perfect, not musically “right”, just us.
Life in Saigon can be found in the album which can be as simple as winning the lottery (Trúng số), snooping girls (Rình gái), wanting to poo in a traffic jam (Mắc ỉa lúc kẹt xe), natural birth control methods (Biện pháp tránh thai tự nhiên) or more sophisticated like how to play music (Chơi nhạc như thế nào), etc. Some are real social issues in Vietnam such as sexual harassment in the song about grabbing ass (Bóp đít) which is about cased of sexual harassment officially fined 200 thousand Vietnam Dong (10 USD) each time with no other consequences or drug abuse can be found in Suck into the sun (Hút vào mặt trời) tells a story about a guy, on drugs, who went to the airport and claimed that many airplanes were being sucked into the sun.
The album was our first one recorded by ourselves in many practice rooms. We made lots of mistakes during the process and would love to learn and improve in the following music to come.”
