Inception: San Diego, 1980
In the early 1980s. DFX2 seemed poised to blast out of San Diego and on to big arena gigs and fame. Led by twin brothers Douglas Farage (vocals and rhythm guitar) and David Farage (lead guitar and vocals), the other members were drummer Frank Hailey and Eric Gotthelf on bass who would replace Matthew Pray after the release of their album Where Are They Now.
DFX2 released two EPs, and their songs “Emotion” and “Maureen” were minor radio hits, and their videos saw much airplay on early MTV broadcasts. The band officially broke up in 1989.
David Farage would later play with Sensational Big M.R. and His All-Bitchin' All-Stud All-Stars, while Matthew Pray would turn up with Barefoot Hockey Goalie.
DFX2 songs have been recorded by several other performers, including Scottie Blinn’s bands the Mississippi Mudsharks and Black Market III.
