ALL THESE BLUESY LICKS

Art Of Dysfunction
Art Of Dysfunction

Art Of Dysfunction pulled together their first line up around 2017 and have gone through the obligatory personnel changes that are an inevitability of any band’s growing up.  Having spoken to their members recently, we can’t guarantee that they’re in any way grown up, but they do have a stable line up now and their members seem to like each other, or, at least, they can mostly remember each other’s names.

“The name means finding something good,” said Michael Menna, guitarist and founding member of Art Of Dysfunction, “or the art out of something not very arty.  Or just dysfunction.  Finding the good out of a bunch of dysfunctional blokes.”

They certainly gave a good impression of being dysfunctional when we spoke, but, talk to them about their music, and you find they’re hard edged and steely eyed.  Music means everything to this band, and they could care less whether anyone else digs what they’re doing, as long as they get to do it.

“There’s not really many people around doing it,” said Menna, “because, maybe people don’t think it’s innovative and things like that, but we don’t really care about that, we’re just having fun playing music that we like.

“That old school style, but with a modern edge to it. All these bluesy licks.”

Check out Around The Sound’s video interview with Art Of Dysfunction right here and get to the Milk Bar early on 28 May for Gargantua to see them opening the show.  We guarantee you’ll have a good time and, from what we’ve heard and seen we think some of the other bands on the line up might just be a little bit worried that Art Of Dysfunction might do a Van Halen to their Black Sabbath — blow them off the stage!

Gargantua features Psychonaut, Electric State, Maverick Firebird and our new besties, Art Of Dysfunction.  Get your tickets here.
