Hometown: Chicago, IL (USA)


Trenchmouth was a Chicago–based band that fused hardcore with post–punk, no wave, reggae, jazz, industrial, and funk to create a manic and danceable hybrid completely their own. Throughout its existence, the band consisted of Damon Locks (vocals/percussion), Chris DeZutter (guitar), Wayne Montana (bass), and Fred Armisen on drums. Their third LP, Trenchmouth vs. The Light of the Sun, was released on East West Records, a division of Elektra Records. Armisen went on to be a cast member of Saturday Night Live. Locks went on to be in Super ESP and later reconvened with Montana to form The Eternals.
