Data versus Data (pronounced Data versus Data), henceforth "DVD," was formed in the first few calm months of 2007, coming together using studio space in the home of their unofficial "official" band friend. In this small and poorly lit room, DVD recorded their first ep, Touching Books EP, began fusing mutual loves of lo-fi and hi-fi, and helped put pants on a dog. When there were no dogs left to clothe, they moved into a larger studio space, in which they have continued to write and record.
Luke Lukas, purveyor of all things lo-fi, is DVD''s lead vocalist, guitarist, key tickler, harmonica-izer, and often plays the drums when Brad T leaves the room. Before DVD, Luke Lukas primarily played solo, although he did collaborate with a friend to create and perform as the FroBots. Luke Lukas is a proud supporter of crispy rice.
Brad Thomason is DVD''s drummer, keyboardist, sequencing and electronics guru, and does vocal work on the band’s recorded albums. If Luke Lukas is running late for practice, Brad will sometimes grab the mike and belt out a few songs, mostly for his own entertainment. Brad is also the creative director for DVD''s promotional artwork and can hang a flyer straight as a board, without a level.
Chip Beyer, the bands bassist, was involved in several different musical groups over the years with Brad. After their band Mossmoon dissolved, Chip joined the military, and thus initiated his extreme punctuality and ability to make a bed with hospital corners. Chip can also be seen (and heard) playing keyboards and belting out vocals on some songs. Chip has a dog named Pilot, who is not an actual pilot.
Today, Data Versus Data spends their spare playing shows, recording their upcoming EP, Five Foot DeEP, perfecting their British accents, and helping each other move.
