DCxPC Live are back with another dose of fantastic live punk, this time from San Diego rockers Some Kind Of Nightmare. The Orlando-based record label was launched during the pandemic by veteran rockers and Call in Dead bandmates, Mister P and Mike Hellbound. When the pandemic shut down venues around the world, the duo decided to bring live music directly to the fans.
Fashioned after the legendary VMLive recordings of the 1990s, DCxPC first offered raw live stream recordings. Regular readers of The Static Dive will remember previous releases from Call in Dead, Year of the Fist and more. They have since expanded their portfolio to include full live shows from the past and present. All of their records are pressed to vinyl and delivered in some wonderfully barebones DIY packaging.
“We Take Form” is the brand new single from the band Some Kind Of Nightmare. The San Diego rockers have been touring incessantly since their formation in 2006. Mister P is an old friend and took the opportunity to record them when they passed through Orlando last year. DCxPC Live Vol. 9 Some Kind of Nightmare Live at Lou’s LMGA is the result. The record is a smoking 5-song collection of raw punk energy. “We Take Form” opens the set with a three-chord dedication to cancer survivors everywhere.
Check out “We Take Form” below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Dive playlist, or listen on your favorite streaming service. However for the full effect, we suggest you head over to Bandcamp and pick up the full vinyl release. The package includes unlimited streaming of DCxPC Live Vol. 9 Some Kind of Nightmare Live at Lou’s LMGA via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

8 Questions with Some Kind of Nightmare
Where are you from?
A few different places. We started the band back when we were living in Ohio. That’s where Molly and I grew up. Then we moved to San Jose, CA to try and get our music off the ground there. After about a year we moved to San Diego, CA and that’s where we really became the band we are today, and still like to think of that as our home.
How long have you been making music?
I got my first guitar when I was 15. I learned a few chords and after a while started my first band when I was 17 or 18.
Who are the musicians involved in your project?
My wife Molly plays bass and does all of the singing that people like ha ha!. Myself, obviously, on guitar and doing the other half of the singing. And then we’ve worked with a handful of drummers over the years from all over the U.S.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
I grab influence from punk bands of all eras and all areas. It’s too difficult to file it down to any specific band or genre. I like to pull from anything that moves me.
What is your greatest non-musical influence?
What inspired you to create this project?
The desire to be a part of something that has given so much to me, and the chance to share it with others.
What are your plans for the future (musically)?
To keep moving forward the way we always have and see where the journey takes us next.
