Fronted by Dallon Weekes, long-time bassist for Panic! At The Disco and drummer Ryan Seaman, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me (shortened to iDKHOW) have released a video for their latest single Choke. The track is taken from the band’s debut EP 1981 Extended Play, out now via Fearless Records.
iDKHOW is a musical entity with a conceptual backstory. The name, a key to their remarkable odyssey, is taken from a piece of dialogue from the 80s classic film Back To The Future. They are a lost act from the late 70s early 80s that never quite made it, but their rare and long-forgotten music has recently been unearthed thanks to today’s technological resources.
The recent discovery of the long forgotten performance of Choke was accompanied by the following description: ‘Pop Time Live’ was a short-lived music television program that aired briefly in Eastern Europe in the early 1980’s. The show and its producers had hoped to capitalise on the then popular ‘Italo Disco’ movement, but audiences found its lack of authenticity objectionable.
Labeled “NOT FOR BROADCAST,” it’s believed that this particular iDKHOW performance never made it to air due to the band’s refusal to properly pantomime to their own song.
