The modern Californian garage rock scene has thrived on cross-pollination. Los Angeles’ The Birth Defects is the embodiment of this ideal. The band features former Bleached drummer Jon Safley and Petey Dammit of Thee Oh Sees backing local songwriter Jason Finazzo, plus the newest edition, guitarist Tim Dawson. Both of their albums First 8 Mistakes and Everything is Fine were produced by Ty Segall.
The Birth Defects’ live shows are described as “an all out assault on pop sensibility and widely accessible music with their bastard child of punk, thrash, noise and every genre of heavy music that services the outcasts and the misunderstood of society”.
