Discography

So far, the Disclaimers have a 5-song demo, recorded in the summer of 2003. Three of the songs can be listened to here: "Let Go," "Just Dessert," and "Talk Radio Breakdown." All the members are happy with the recording, and they're presently preparing to record another set of songs this August. They want to capture a rawer sound than the first demo -- one that gives a good representation of their live act.

Bio

The Disclaimers strive to be a true “band,” rather than just the vehicle for a particular frontperson. Dan and Dylan began playing together back in 2001, and for a while the group was their little project. But since they’ve found the right collaborators in Phil, Andrew and Naa Koshie, it has become a truly collective effort. So far, three of the members have written songs, all five of them sing, and everyone contributes ideas and constructive criticism.
The band’s brief foray into a studio last summer left them with a demo they were pretty happy with, but more importantly, it left them with a sense of how much more they could accomplish. Since then, they have improved significantly, and they are aching to get back to recording. In the meantime, they are concentrating on their live act, a high-energy romp though melodic, harmony-laden rock and roll. Two years ago, their set consisted of mostly cover songs – they’re embarrassed to admit that they actually performed two Lovin’ Spoonful tunes in one set, but they don’t really regret it. Now, they have over 20 original songs, and there are plenty more presently in the works.
The Disclaimers try hard to please. They want to make you dance. They want to make you sing along. They want to make you find yourself humming one of their tunes while you go about your day. They are inherently creative souls, but they refuse to see the point of creating something that only a handful of people will (at least pretend to) appreciate. They definitely have a certain vision, but they try hard not to be constrained by any sort of aesthetic pretense. They’re still developing, confident that a clear path lies before them. Check out the three songs on this site to get a taste, but keep an eye out for any of their live performances if you really want to know what the Disclaimers are all about.
