"Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Jonas. He plays the guitar and the ukulele and writes songs and all that. He loves to play in his band with his buddies in front of lots of peeps and he also loves to play to no one too. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced it enough." - The Stranger
Destrung is a three piece band from San Diego. Their sound has the energy and quirkiness of bands like Pavement and the Violent Femmes with a raw Lou Reed feel.
Destrung was set in motion by Jonas (guitarist of the San Diego band, Buck-O-Nine). Our sound is evolving into something like... if Stephen Malkmus and Gordon Gano saw The Plimsouls in 1983 and decided they wanted to start a band that wrote songs like "A Million Miles Away".
We haven't quite captured that exact sound on tape yet, BUT we are getting close.
