With a curated storyline - iDKHOW was initially believed to have been a band from 30 plus years ago that never got their big break. A band that time forgot. But in 2017, an anonymous donor began to release recovered video footage of iDKHOW. The videos, released out of chronological order, span the years 1964 to 1983 and hint to a different story than that of a band lost to obscurity. As this footage of iDKHOW has surfaced in the past three years, fans, music historians and conspiracy theorists have converged on internet platforms to debate the story of iDKHOW. ***** UK press reaction to iDKHOW Razzmatazz is fun, flamboyant, and entirely of its time – DIY Bright, vintage-pop-indebted tracks - DORK Razzmatazz comes at just the right time and it was well worth the wait – Kerrang! a brightly lit, dance-ready time machine - The Line Of Best Fit "[Razzmatazz is an] emo pop banger" - NME a glorious, larger than life record to get you through the rest of the year - Punktastic ..ambitious, bizarre, life-affirming debut album, ready and waiting for you to fall back into whenever you want to forever and always. - Rock Sound Albums of The Year 2020 - Upset iDKHOW: Facebook | Instagram | Spotify | Twitter | Website | YouTube
