Dufus

Within the music of Dufus resides a severe tension in constant jeopardy of hurtling out of control;  aggressive and nurturing, chaotic yet structured, solitary and social, apolitical and revolutionary.  It is complex genius, yet there is something innocent and pure, something so subconscious that one gets the feeling they are in a strange and new land unsure of what has changed.  Dufus wears experimental song structures and their own handmade clothing, improvising often during live performance with a blend of different forms in often unexpected and pleasantly surprising ways while all the time maintaining an uplifting experience deliberately for the listener's benefit.  The use of all forms of art seem to be included, musically/visually stimulating with a degree of performance art unknown to most audiences.

Seth Faergolzia is the ringleader.  In addition to his work as a musician, he also creates dissassembled/reassembled garments called Clothestumes, paintings and sculptures.  He has hung work with Jean-Michel Basquiat, receiving honorable mention for his “Celibacy Pants” in an article by Roberta Smith of the New York Times, and more recently was pictured with Jeffery Lewis and Chriss Sutherland (Cerberus Shoal) on the cover of the New York Times weekend arts Section.  Seth has also written and performed an experimental rock-opera called Fun Wearing Underwear and has a second one called 23 Psaegz in the works.

The live performance set up can vary from acoustic guitar with choir to full band and auxiliary instruments... up to 20 members but as few as 2  Seth Faergolzia also tours as a solo artist visiting cities and forming impromptu bands with fans and members of friendly bands.
