DADA TRASH COLLAGE


When Detroit natives Dada Trash Collage (William Freed and Richard Bell) re-located to Minneapolis, MN in fall of 2008, the long-time duo was starting from scratch in a place where they didn’t know a soul. With two self-released full-lengths in less than six months and a hypnotizing live show, it didn’t take long for the duo to go from complete unknowns to being one of the most talked about bands in Minneapolis. It wasn’t until Dada Trash Collage traveled to Seattle in October of 2009 to work with super producer Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Yeasayer, Prince Rama) that word began to spread beyond the twin cities.

With the release of the Rain War EP in Feb 2010, and their third full lengthNeighbors in May, the more refined sound of Colburn’s work with the duo was met with national and international praise from music publications and to Internet listeners across the globe.
 


Shortly after the release of the Rain War EP, Bell took a short hiatus from the project due to medical reasons. Freed continued to perform solo under the Dada Trash Collage moniker. He hit the road on a tour with Zola Jesus as well as making stops including CMJ and Pop Montreal, where he performed both as himself and as part of a special collaboration with Italian underground sensations Father Murphey, which was recorded live for a compilation benefiting the Italian label Hybrida. Shortly after returning from the tour, Freed released Cool Waves/ Bad Days, Dada Trash Collage’s fourth full-length and only solo release.
 

While on tour, Freed began writing what would become Ambitious Out Of Control, a multi-media collaboration with Bear Ears (Jessica Freed) and Richard Bell, once again returning to the group. The full-length record/film was over a year in the making, and was released as a 12” vinyl LP and DVD on the band's very own Burn The Witch Collective Records in October 2011, and featured a silent film directed by Freed meant to be synced up manually with the vinyl copy. With Richard Bell returning from hiatus, the duo hit the road again in early 2011 before returning to their Michigan studio to begin work on their newest effort theFun Fund EP. Spanning 22 minutes over 6 songs, Fun Fund is easily the bands most sonically ambitious work to date. Moving seemlessly through psychadelia, dub, experimental electronic soundscapes, and hard driving west african grooves, Fun Fund creates a world of its own and shows once again that the far reaching experiments in pop music Dada Trash Collage have become known for have no plans on settling into complacency any time soon.

 
The Fun Fund EP is now available on cassette via MJ MJ Records, and digitally from DDTC’s own Burn The Witch Collective Records.
