Biography

VEEDEE will rearrange your mind. Out of the Chicago underground crawl VEEDEE like a snake on it's belly. Three sons of broken homes with an appetite for apathy have delivered their debut album FURTHUR. A testament to Midwest life at it's most dangerous.

2004 haas been an important year for VEEDEE, January saw them debut two songs on the critically accllaimed, MAYBE CHICAGO? compilation (Criminal IQ/Protomerssh) along with the TYRADES, PONYS, BASEBALL FURIES, FUNCTIONAL BLACKOUTS, MANHANDLERS. A single followed on Italian label, Goodbye Boozy, in May, and a full-length followed on CRIMINAL IQ RECORDS (Functional Blackouts, MOTO, Krunchies, Manhandlers) in June. VEEDEE have recieved naationwide college radio airplay and notably caught the ear of BBC Radio 1 legend, John Peel, who plays songs from the album, Furthur, regulary. VEEDEE toured the midwest with Caalifornian legends, the WEIRDOS, in May 2004 and are planning an east coast tour in August. Their album has received rave reviews in Punk Planet, Razorcake, Maximum Rock and Roll, New City, Chicago Reader, Horizontal Action Magazine, Pistil Magazine, and skate rock mainstay, THRASHER.

Coming on like a deranged BUZZCOCKS, VEEDEE have their own brand of tripped out, buzz-fuelled, beat driven punk that hasn't been seen from a Chicago band since the days of the SHADOWS OF KNIGHT.
