DMZ was a first-wave American punk rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, strongly influenced by 1960s garage rock. In early 1976, Jeff Conolly (sometimes credited as J. Connally, Mono Mann, Monoman, etc.) stole the lead vocalist position in the nascent band by out-performing their singer at one of the band's practices. Along with his vocals he brought two things the band lacked: keyboards and original songs. Just over one year later, in April 1977, the band went into the recording studio with Craig Leon ( the Ramones first album). Four songs from that session were released by Bomp! on a 7" vinyl EP. DMZ was signed by Sire Records and went to New York to record their debut album, produced by Flo & Eddie. It was released in 1978 without much success and by the end of the year the group had splintered. Guitarists J. J. Rassler and Preston Wayne left to start the Odds, and J. Conolly, bassist R. Coraccio and drummer Paul Murphy formed Lyres.
DMZ has re-formed periodically: a 1993 set appears on the "Live at the Rat" album.

DMZ: "When I Get Off" (cd 1992)

"...The dueling guitars, slashing riff, and great Corraccio bass complement Mono Mann aka Jeff Connolly's blitzkrieg vocals..."

Monoman ... with DMZ or with Lyres... is one of the best !

Absolutely right! Their cover of "You're Gonna Miss Me" is almost as good as Radio Birdman's! Now, that means something! Thank you S.O.T.D!
