Syd.31 was formed by Dr Magic from an urge to create an exciting band, something he would love to go watch himself. Bored of paying big bucks to watch formulaic bands, he decided to craft angry anthems, by merging a love of hard-core punk, metal and sickly-sweet Vengboys pop. He blended it all together to put on a hell of a show, giving people something worth seeing, and give a place for the freaks to be united. Recruiting Liam C on drums and Dani Graves running samples and vox, he hit the road and vowed never to look back. Following support slots with bands like XP8 and Combichrist, God Module, Faderhead, Syd.31 have shown how to deliver and have expanded to a live four piece – consisting of Dr Magic (Vox), Dani Graves (live synths/vox), Charlotte Evil (guitar) and Kara Wolfe (drums). They are now keen to ramp it up and go for broke.
Syd.31 describe themselves as leather clad, pro-Queer, industrial punks, who like to dress up and get messy. They share make-up, argue over camera angles and get cross over game endings. They buy fake blood in bulk and grew up watching far too much Mad Max to be considered healthy. They are also fiercely political.
