Hey this is Dominic.
Thanks for being here. I've been playing music for a long time but I'm starting to get my business stuff together. So if you sign up for my email list it would be really helpful. In return I'll send you an unreleased live performance video.
I've also been making a lot of music and I want to share it with you.
In July 2020 I released "Sun Will Show Again" with the help of Community Records. It's my first label release and it's my first entirely self produced record. Find it under the "music" tab here. If you want to support the music buy it for $10. There are $10 cassettes available too (with digital download included) at Community Records or just email me.
Here's what a British guy who writes about music said about "Sun Will Show Again":
"New Orleans based multi-instrumentalist Dominic Minix has just released his powerful new EP release “Sun Will Show Again” via Community Records. Dominic produced the EP himself and is known for his years of experience with his band. Dominic has toured worldwide playing backing guitar for Solange – now the artist has created a monumental record to share with the world." -Circuit Sweet (UK)
But I'm really excited to announce BAD OPERATION, a new ska band I'm singing in. Believe it or not, the first punk shows I went to were ska shows. Our record comes out December 18, 2020. Buy it here. Bad Operation broke the internet on release day and sold out of our black and white variant vinyl! We have much fun in store.
The Bad Operation record is a co-release between Community Records and Bad Time Records
"Bad Operation’s debut album somehow captures the most exciting elements of The Specials, the grit and energy of Op Ivy, and combines it with something more modern and refined from the members current and past projects; PEARS, Fatter Than Albert, Dominic Minix Quartet, and All People. Driven at the forefront by DIY ethics and presciently progressive messaging, the band’s backbeat swings between. circle pit-inducing blasts and laid back traditional grooves... they'd be at home in the sweatiest basement punk show, or the smokiest dub lounge. With great riffs, memorable hornlines, dripping organ, and vocals that swing between a croon and a punk rock panic attack, this will go down as one of the defining sounds of this current generation of ska. This band and this record excite me. NEW TONE is here, and I'm here for it." -Bad Time Records
