Dom in his DOM days, Brooklyn Night Bazaar 2011 (more by Erik Erikson)
Kiss 1O8

Sometime this year DOM ceased functioning as a band and Dom, the frontman, is now recording music under the moniker Kiss 1O8. Why the name change? He recently talked about it to Exclaim:

I chose the name Kiss 1O8 after Kiss 108 FM, a pop radio station I used to listen to as a kid. That and 108 is a sacred number in some cultures, as it represents one, nothing and everything. When I hear 'Stargate,' I don't immediately think of the '90s sci-fi soap, I think of two bald men from Norway. To be honest, I don't really care what Ryan Seacrest or anybody else thinks about it.
The name change also marks a radical shift in musical styles, saying Kiss 1O8 is "more like Streets of Rage versus S Club 7, on some maximalist level." You'll be able to hear that for yourself when Dom releases Kiss 1O8's debut, HYPERFANTASY XL LP, on Halloween (10/31). You can stream a track from it below.

There's a listening party for the record happening before that at Le Poisson Rouge on October 29 featuring DJ sets from Kiss 1O8, Pictureplane, Ollie Sabin (Unicorn Kid), Devin Perez (DIIV), John Rambo and "Super Secret Guest TBA." The listening party is free but you do need to RSVP by sending an email to RSVP@newtownradio.com.

Flyer for the show and the track stream below...

So easy for anyone on here to talk some shit and be a hater. I find it funny that all negative messages were send by someone "Anonymous" cuz y'all some bitch ass pussy people talking shit behind your computer or smart phone screen with nothing good to say about anything. You hate your lives and you hate yourself and need to spread your pathetic misery to everything that you consume. You hate on people for creating music? What the fuck do you do? Try and create bitch ass hate and talk shit on blogs. Suck a dick. Ya dun.

^ Your message is also quite negative, and if your name is not 'Hate hate n some more hate' then haven't you also posted anonymously?

@12:10 - He grew up in DYS. Probably doesn't have a dad.

Wouldn't be surprised if our friend 1:02 was Dom himself! Right? Jimbone thinks so! Bring back DOM, man. That Pitchfork video you guys did a while back was so choice. Seriously, re-form DOM!

I'd like to fight in real life, not in the comments. I am willing to meet you on the Hadley town common Saturday night, where we can settle our differences like men.

DOM, the opening band of all NYC shows in 2010. I swear I must've seen them 100x by mistake.

@12.48, I was asked to by DOM and am pretty delighted to do so.

@5.06, I actually just got a job blowing guys at The Gowanus Canal Tuesday through Thursday nights.

By the way @5.06, if you see your dad, tell him he owes me $20 from last week.
