The DHDFD's (rumored to mean "Don't Have Dogs For Dinner") are a four-piece New Zealand garage punk band who formed during the summer of 2005 in the Point Chevalier area of Auckland New Zealand. They released a five track E.P, "Pastor of Muppets", in September 2006 which has subsequently sold out, going on to record a video for their single "Pompino's Magical Blast", receiving considerable rotation on Alt TV. The band have played alongside such internationally recognised acts as King Brothers, The Mint Chicks, The Black Lips, and local artists Rackets, The Demi Whores, and Pikachunes to name a few, as well as the 2009 Big Day Out festival in Auckland.
Their live shows have drawn both acclaim and criticism for their anarchic, chaotic performance - in mid 2008, Scott Brown's ascension of the lighting rig at Auckland venue Space saw the group barred for the foreseeable future.
The DHDFD's cite influences as diverse as Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, Frank Zappa, The Melvins, The Easybeats, Beach Boys. Their energetic live shows have drawn comparisons to the likes of The Jesus Lizard, Black Flag, The Stooges and 2008 touring buddies King Brothers.
