    D.I. Biography

    Coming out of the streets of Fullerton California, DI was formed in the shadows of The Adolescents back in 1983 in a studio behind a pawn shop. The Adolescents, Social Distortion, Agent Orange and several other local early punk rock pioneers were the breeding ground from which DI was born. DI branded their own form of punk rock that complemented the Orange County Punk scene in sound and attitude. DI was thrown to the forefront after the band performed "Richard Hung Himself" with the original line up that recorded the bands first EP in the 1984 movie, "Suburbia", directed by Penelope Spheeris who's previous production was "Decline of Western Civilization." When the band went through a line up change after the first EP titled Team Goon, members of emerging Fullerton band Almost 21 became the backbone for the sound that DI is known for today. During that line up change, front man Casey Royer known for his cutting and outrageous social commentary through humor is joined by Rikk Agnew of The Adolescents on guitar. Rikk brought to DI a handful of songs written in previous years, such as "Falling Out" and "OC Life" which were featured on Rikk Agnew's solo album, "All By Myself" and were made wildly popular though Casey Royer's style and personality. Over the many years that DI has been on the scene, the band has went though a lot of line up changes that has made DI a very incestuous family of players. Most of the former and present members were all part of the Fullerton and north Orange County Punk scene which proved to be the key ingredient to keeping the personality that makes DI what it is. DI has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, and everywhere they performed DI left the audience not wanting the show to be over. The current line, which many have stated could very well be the hardest hitting and most cohesive line up ever, made up of Casey Royer on vocals, brothers Eddie and Joey Tatar as the rhythm unit of bass and drums, Chickenhead on rhythm guitar and brought together by lead guitarist Clinton Calton.
    DI is proud to bring you the band’s 8th release, “On The Western Front”.

    I never really thought they were very good, T.S.O.L. was the best in my opinion.

    Saw D.I at Hogue Bar Michael's in 2004/2005 and the crowd was all skin heads and yelling white power and the singer said it once and continued playing the songs, didn't care really, first and only time i've seen them, i walked out after seen that display, fucking stupid.

    i actually smoked out with rikk back in 96ish... he was a way cool guy, i agree with punkmar77 as far as i liked tsol better (until they're singer left) But casey was a nice guy also when he came into the record shop i used to work at. Little know secret.. DI actually originaly stood for Drug Ideology (according to rikk)

    Oh yeah Kaaos on a somewhat related note, I cut and pasted something you said about Rikk Agnew being the best American punk guitarist a few months ago and sent it to him on his birthday and he got a big kick out of it...

    haha there weird trippy rock&roll that are lumped into punk for some reason. They do a cover of Please Don't touch which isn't bad but the rest of there stuff is garbage. Some good old melbourne bands: GASH, Psychotic Maniacs, early Vicious Circle, Permanent Damage, Bastard Squad, Civil Dissident.
