Diztrict Allstarz / Press

“Diztrict All Starz, a funky hip hop punk band from Danbury, Conecticut, recently released a music video for “9 to 5″, an infectious and upbeat song about the drudgery of the work week. The band features Cee Reed, a well-known hip hop artist, and the members of the former post-punk outfit Total Dick. Together they create an “electrifying sound that cannot be pigeonholed, and keeps the fat booties shaking”. W. Miles Dupree crafted the video for “9 to 5″, a crowd favorite at Diztrict’s shows.”

“Band members Bruce Wingate and Wayne Garcia went on to form a three-man band Bruce Wayne in tribute to both of their first names and the secret identity of comic book hero Batman. In the mid-1990s Wingate was the musical director for two tours by cult figure Harvey Sid Fisher. He has continued to write and record as the frontman for many groups, including The International Brunch Mummies, Shyster Shyster & Flywheel, New Reagans, The Earls Of Sandwich, and the TXT PSTLZ (text pistols). He also formed a joke-techno band called Total Dick which progressed and renamed itself to District Allstarz.”

“IT was just before 11 p.m. on a recent Saturday and about 40 people were pressed together at the front of the stage at the Monkey Bar in Danbury when Cee Reed, a popular M.C. in the local hip-hop scene, picked up the microphone and blared, ''Can you hear me Connecticut?''”

“Wednesday, January 25, 2006 THE HAT CITY INTUITIVE Saw The Hat City Intuitive play a classically great set on Saturday at the Warehouse Next Door. I'm biased b/c I put out one of their records and I'm pals w/all of them, but I knew their music before I knew them and if liking music is a bias, then objectivity's for chumps. The set started with double-guitar splatter-rock, swung through heavy chunks of sax & bass clarinet interlockings, a slice of meditative noise, and back to a great guitar-battle denouement. There were highs and lows and middles, and they were all awesome”

“It's always nice to find punks with a sense of humor. Although AOD didn't exactly blast off with Let's Barbeque — six songs on seven inches recorded in 15 minutes — these New Jersey natives grew into a far better band. The first record's sound is barrel-bottom, but the playing has a nice industrial buzz; creative use of spoken and shouted vocals punctuates the drone. ”

“We're not done with our search here in the state of Connecticut. Here, I bring you an MC by the name of Cee Reed out of Danbury, CT. He's been putting in work for some time now and maybe you need to hear it.”
