ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Dehumanizers began as a bet between two brothers in 1984. David Ulysses Portnow bet his older brother, Infra Ed, that the latter could have far greater success playing the punk music that he loved than continuing to work as a union musician playing covers at parties, company functions, and bar mitzvahs. David came up with the name and had a band logo created. Because of David’s marketing skills, the band started receiving international orders for a non-existent demo tape entitled “Save The World”. Infra Ed wrote some songs, and laid down each instrument one by one, turning a fictitious demo into a thriving success. All was well, but they still had no band.

Zoli Semanate was recruited for guitar and John “Mort” Mortensen for bass. These three original band members recorded the “Kill Lou Guzzo” EP, but Mort wound up leaving unexpectedly. The next album, “End Of Time”, featured Infra Ed, Zoli, and two new players, Joe Daut on vocals and Phil Bentz on bass.

A few years later, “Here’s To You” was released, featuring the “Kill Lou Guzzo” line-up on one side, and Joe, Infra Ed, Lonnie Troll, and Muddy Watanabe on the other. Phil had taken a leave of absence.

In 1991, the band released a fourth album, “Go Hollywood”, with a different line-up yet again, featuring Infra Ed, Phil, and Keith Livingston.

Today, the Dehumanizers are a community band featuring a rotating line-up. David and Infra Ed are the two stable components involved with all of the line-ups. Mort, Joe, Zoli, Lee Conley, and Infra Ed fill out the current roster. Mort also doubles in his internationally famous band Mono Men. Phil, Lonnie, Muddy, and Keith are welcome to rotate in and out as needed.

The Dehumanizers play a unique form of Skate Punk that is filled with humor, drug references, and politics. The constant line-up changes have been due to necessity, rather than loss of interest. Their rough lifestyles, drug use, and other inherent problems have led to several members being incarcerated or taking ill. These issues have not corrected themselves, and therefore they prefer to have a rotating line-up. Recently, Joe was taken into custody and extradited to Nevada for some serious narcotics violations. The band continues without him, but are awaiting his return. He will be back after his release date. It is a community band that (dys)functions as a family!

These punk rock legends have existed for over three decades as a hardcore band, and appear to have no thought of letting up. They have been called the Rolling Stones of punk rock.
