about the band
DF & The Alibis were formed late in 2011, when Belfast born guitarist Das Fenster got together in Norwich with double bass player Will ‘Pearly’ Gates and a drummer known only as ‘The Chemist’, to jam some songs he had written. Our music combines elements of Rockabilly, Swing, Afro-Caribbean, and a macabre sense of theatre. We quickly established ourselves as something ‘a bit different’, and we have played at numerous festivals, and landed support slots with bands like The Wedding Present, and The Troggs to name but a few. We released our first album in 2015, but in 2019, whilst recording our new album we decided to augment our live sound. We discovered that multi-instrumentalist Donna Matrix was free and performed the necessary arcane voodoo ritual required to initiate her as a full member of the band.
DF & The Alibis sing tales of crime, insanity, and close calls with the devil. The rumbling drums, twanging guitar, thumping double-bass and wailing sax are sure to possess your soul and your soles, and make you want to move to our sinful rhythms.
The band performs under the protective power of our ever- present voodoo-shrine.
October 2020 Sees the launch of our debut second album “Lucky Charms & Firearms” on Vinyl, CD, and Download.
