One of the recent next wave of punk bands made up of members of earlier groups in the Taiwan scene, Damnkidz can back up their style with experience. Forming in the summer of 2005 in southern Taiwan, frontman How-die was the former vocalist of a fei scene band called Oi! while drummer Xiao-hung and guitarist Ah-long came from Silly What?, a pop punk group with some ska-core stylings. Together Damnkidz takes a comedic approach to Hi-Standard skate punk and have formed a collective with other south Taiwan bands satirically named S4RS, or Search 4 Real Self. The band also released their first EP Show Hand in 2008. Damnkidz avidly promote themselves at fests like Spring Scream handing flyers to passersby and usually have a pretty good turn out because of it. They often perform with other south Taiwan bands like Maho, Fire Ex and Orangedoll at S4RS organized events.
