Biography

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, post-punk trio My Disco were formed in 2003 by brothers Liam and Ben Andrews and Rohan Rebeiro. Named for a Big Black song, the band specialized in angular, cerebral indie rock. My Disco made a name for themselves with their busy touring schedules, but found themselves slowed down in 2004 when Liam Andrews was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The band continued to play shows, squeezing in gigs and rehearsals in between Andrews’ chemotherapy treatments. During this time, the band began to develop a more minimal, biting sound reminiscent of the metallic thump of Shellac. In 2006 they released their first full-length, Cancer. The following year, My Disco journeyed to the other side of the world to begin working on a new album with Steve Albini at the famous Electrical Audio in Chicago. Paradise, released in 2008, found the band shifting even further away from math rock, delving deeper into more minimal waters. The band set off on a world tour in 2009 and releasing the uptempo, dance-leaning single "Young" in 2010. The group returned to Electrical Audio that year to, but after recording with Albini, My Disco decided to go in a different direction with the production, instead taking the album to Silverchair producer Scott Horscroft. The album, Little Joy, was released in early 2011 on Temporary Residence. "Wrapped Coast," another single that flirted with dance rhythms, was released as a 12" in 2012, and included remixes by Factory Floor and Justin Broadrick. For the group's fourth full-length, they stayed in Melbourne and worked with producer/film composer Cornel Wilczek, recording entirely with digital equipment. Titled Severe, the album was released by Temporary Residence in 2015. ~ Gregory Heaney
