Dissfigured started as a fun project with no intent to ever release anything.

The idea was just to write a bunch of music and play it as a hobby.
Several of the songs are actually rehashed versions of songs written in the early 00's back when we were a trio called "Twisted Coil".
What a horrible name but there was a good story behind it and and we had a bunch of internet radio play so we used it for awhile.

thousand yard stare is the first disc as Dissfigured but a second is already in the works.

This set of tracks was recorded mostly in home studios and mastered in Kraljevo Serbia of all places at a studio called AB Sound Production.

The driving force behind the home studio / outsourcing model was money but in the end, it works.
It is less refined and there are little quirks here nad there that most musicians would have punched in and refactored but leaving them in makes everything a bit more real.

Stepping away from the world of airbrushed people in magazines, we see that everyone is a little Dissfigured in real life.
(That made me cringe)
Same with music though. No over processed, auto tuned, sampled, ultra polished thing that cannot be recreated. Just the music.

Phillip Foxley

Phillip Foxley is a songwriter/guitarist from Wales in the UK. He first picked up a guitar in the
1970s, playing clubs and bars. Over time, he found himself in studio sessions, house bands and
writing music for TV and film soundtracks. With influences like Snowy White, David Gilmour, Mick
Ronson, Alvin Lee, Leslie West and Gary Moore, Foxley released his own debut EP entitled I'll try
'till I die" in July 2015. An eclectic collection of original blistering blues rock guitar and soft acoustic
and piano tracks, written over the years. Foxley says "Every track on this album means so much
and every note is from my very soul".
"If you’ve never heard of Phillip Foxley then you should seek out his music, turn up the volume and
zone out. It reflects the maturity so loved and appreciated in the great blues rock players. His song
collection has all the right stuff; edgy blues to classically styled rock to soft acoustic and piano
tunes. It’s like listening to three generations of blues-rock on one album". Jamsphere Magazine.

Cherry Grind

Cherry Grind are a hard rock band writing truly original, modern music with a distinct groove.
Their song writing is imaginative and fresh, exhibiting scope that belies their years, with each member contributing equally to their huge sound. The reintroduction of vocal harmonies into a hard rock setting has been long overdue and adds to the depth of their sound. Combine that with bone rattling riffs and an unrelenting groove and you have a band with a lot to offer.
Cherry Grind enjoy what they do and it shows. Their raucous energy onstage is fuelled directly by the music which is heavy but soulful. Though they’re in their early 20s, between them they have the combined experience of 40 years playing pubs and clubs in various successful bands.
Lead singer Sam Patsouris is the ideal front man for the outfit with his commanding presence and friendly demeanour onstage, he invites the crowd in. Lead guitarist Jack Stevenson's dynamic playing confidently leads the band through many landscapes, weaving and cavorting with Sam's melodies. Peter Cerlienco's robust basslines are the key to the band's huge sound, providing an expert low-end counterpoint to Jack and Sam’s explorations. Zach West is the glue that holds the outfit together, directing and driving the music, holding the groove and maintaining the pulse. Together they have chemistry on stage that is usually exuded by seasoned professionals.
