Deerhoof vs Evil documents the bands' 'coming-of-age'. The result is polished, blissfully exuberant, and huge-
sounding. Going DIY meant freedom to reinvent themselves, playing each others' instruments, altering those instruments
so drastically as to be unrecognizable, (those aren't Joanna Newsom or Konono No. 1 samples, those are John and Ed's
guitars), and generally splashing their sonic colors into the most unexpected combinations.
To document their musical "coming-of-age" the band members could only trust themselves. Besides their cover of an
obscure Greek film soundtrack instrumental ("Let's Dance the Jet"), and a song done for NY artist Adam Pendleton's
documentary film installation BAND ("I Did Crimes for You"), these songs were completely self-recorded, mixed and
mastered in practice spaces and basements with no engineers or outside input.
