D-A-D is a danish hard rock band, formed in 1982 by Jesper Binzer, Stig Pedersen and Peter Lundholm Jensen. Jespers younger brother Jacob Binzer (nickname Cobber) joined in 1984. Originally the band was named Disneyland After Dark. The first album was released in 1986 (Call of the Wild) and mainly consisted of songs that one might categorize as âcow punkâ. Simple bass rhytms and drumplay with catchy guitar tunes and storytelling lyrics (blended with humor!) gives strong associations to country-music. As did their liveshows. At that time many country-fans actually saw Disneyland After Dark as the savior of the country-genre.
The members of the band however, never had these ambitions; their music was meant to be funny and ironic.
Partly because of this and partly because of more serious ambitions in the band, their second record (D.A.D. draws a circle) was more of an experiment with different genres in hard rock and (cow) punk.
