As far as I can tell, The Bavarian Druglords (TBD) are pretty much Syed Druglord and his sometimes drummer/collaborator. Although TBD have Facebook and MySpace pages, information about the band is limited. Most of what I learned was via Pete Cogle’s interview of Syed from December of 2010. Syed claims Detroit as his hometown, but is currently based in Brooklyn. He started his own record label, Kill Art Movement, for the single purpose of unleashing himself upon the world.
Although loosely fitting, Syed doesn’t especially like the terms psychedelic or shoegaze to describe his music. Instead, he finds the term “hollowrock” more interesting than the former labels. So what is hollow rock? Check it out below.
