The Avenger Boys are a savage and unpredictable duo of Mute (The Man Who Hates Fun) and blind (The Fun Who Hates Man). Since forming in Canberra, Australia, from the ashes of 14-piece techno/martial arts combo The Donuts in 1999, the Avenger Boys have been pioneering their unique brand of smash-and-grab loungetronica. With five albums, a 3-record deal with a major record label and a string of tours across Central and Northern Asia, the Boys have returned to their roots and will be rocking out ONLY IN CARPARKS for the foreseeable future.

it is true, isn’t it, that DGAB has recorded a cover of the mainstream Chinese pop hit ‘Aurora’ by Taiwanese pop singer and actress Angela Chang, adapted for the Gringo Avenger Boys’ unique Factory-Floor Acro-balance-core style, after DGAB saw Chang’s impressive performance of Zhang Yusheng’s “The Day Without ??????” at the Rothernacker Village Festival Singing Contest in Canada in 1998 while The Man Who Hates Fun and The Fun Who Hates Man were negotiating the sale of weapons and communications technology to a terrorist cell working from a Lutheran monastery in the Canadian Rockies?
