The DLF Collective
YouTube link: DLF Collective
The DLF is a collective*. It's existence is hard to explain. It started out as people who were involved with Wet Shoelaces as occasional contributors, and was officially birthed when these same musicians came to collaborate with Steve on a recording session that Allen could not attend. No Allen, no Wet Shoelaces. So a new name was needed. As this was a collaboration with E Aubrey Andrews, we decided on the name E Aubrey Andrews and the Discordian Liberation Front. One member of the collective got cold feet about the "Liberation Front" part of our name, and we just became the DLF. Then we made an album under the name DLF, even though Allen was a contributor. So what's the difference? DLF records are similar to Wet Shoelaces, but often darker, and with a more post-punk feel.
As time has progressed, the DLF has become centered around the core improvisational trio of Jeff "Bear" Bengston (pictured), Steve Gregory, and Steve Zone.
