Easily probably the most cynical from the D.C. Dischord rings, Wise Went Crazy combine the Psychedelic Furs-like ironic and honest portraits of the surrounding picture with well-orchestrated, edgy punk within the vein of Shudder to believe. The band began as a studio room task with Chad Clark (vox, electric guitar, piano), Abram Goodrich (bass), and Hilary Soldati (vox, cello) and added Tony Dennison on drums to record the Cubbyhole EP released independently label Cozy Disk. They started playing concert events being a quintet with Jeff Boswell on electric guitar and farfisa within their indigenous Washington D.C. and Devin Ocampo emerged in after Dennison past due in 1997. Their 1996 full-length, Today We’re Even, starts the band’s ultra-black laughter and noisy make of art-punk. Con Artwork shows the music group at their finest with razor-sharp portraits of previous fans and depraved close friends dropping over Ocampo’s mid-tempo tumult drumming and Soldati/Clark’s sing-sneer vocals. The group disbanded soon after their 1998 tour. Ocampo today comes with an instrumental rock-band named Faraquet.
