Originally formed in 2000 by core members Max Nye and Eric Purtle, Dayton Ohio’s Dark Backward began primarily as a studio-based art-damage collective. However, 2008 saw the band morph into a more traditional, live-based “rock” outfit while retaining its original anything-goes ethos; their general mission statement as amorphous as the 1991 cult film after which they were named. Nye and Purtle both labored in seminal Dayton new-wave act Dementia Precox; additionally, Purtle up until recently worked the Midwest punk circuit with Luxury Pushers. Jeff Brelsford and Jim Ingram toiled notably with Mondolux and Colonel Bleep respectively, among many others. Simply stated, DB’s members’ combined rock-years total is a staggering number… Guy Capo’s 2005 skin feature “Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll” brought Dark Backward an AVN award nod for best soundtrack; the film also showcased Max in a substantial (albiet non-f*cking) role. Expect the loudest.
