San Francisco, CA, United States
Deerhoof is an American rock band whose erratic style veers between pop, noise punk, and avant-garde. The band's live shows are known for their minimal gear, maximal volume, and surrealist banter. Since their formation in 1994 in San Francisco they have been leaderless, have self-produced their records, and have self-managed their career. All members contribute songs and play various instruments. The band's current line-up consists of John Dieterich, Satomi Matsuzaki, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier. Rob Fisk and Greg Saunier founded Deerhoof in San Francisco in 1994 as an improvisation duo of bass and drums.
