It's the new venture from Guy McKnight...

Way back when The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster were arguably the most thrilling, intoxicating, liberating live music experience in the land.

Collapsing before their time, the band's incendiary force blazed a trail for others to follow, with frontman Guy McKnight retreating to lick his wounds.

New project THE DSM IV is an exhilarating return from the frontman, a new project with a new ethos but a highly familiar attitude.

Matching caustic, Mark E Smith style lyricism to proto-techno beats, the band seem to sit somewhere between The Stooges primal garage punk and Suicide's screeching futurism.

Playing a Deep Cuts Night at Phase One in Liverpool on March 7th, the group are ready to share brand new single 'Funland'.

Raging towards incoherence THE DSM IV forever pull back from the edge, a blistering dance-punk fusion that aims both for the body and the mind.
