Led from the highly reputed singer/songwriter Dave Dobbyn, DD Smash was being among the most popular New Zealand rings of their era. Shaped in middle-1981, the group was originally called Dave Dobbyn’s Divers, and in addition contains ex-Lip Program guitarist Rob “Revox” Man, drummer Peter “Rooda” Warren and bassist Lisle Kinney. After a small number of gigs they rechristened themselves DD Smash, and shortly issued their initial solitary, “Repetition”; it quickly reached the very best 25 and resulted in the 1982 launch from the LP Awesome Bananas, which joined the graphs at number 1. After a car accident, Kinney remaining the music group, and with fresh bassist Ian Morris, DD Smash resurfaced in 1983 using the strike “Perspective for Wednesday.” After a concert LP, Live: Deep in the Heart of Fees, Dobbyn terminated everyone but Warren, documenting 1984’s The Optimist with program players. On Dec 7 of this year, the brand new DD Smash performed a free of charge concert which finished in rioting; Dobbyn was produced the scapegoat from the event, and was attempted for inciting the masses to assault. The charges had been eventually dismissed, however in the wake from the trial, DD Smash silently disintegrated, as Dobbyn started focusing increasingly more of his energies on single work.
