Dazzling Killmen was a math rock band from the St. Louis, Missouri area.

Biography[edit]

The group, which formed in 1990, was composed of jazz students—drummer Blake Fleming, bassist Darin Gray, vocalist/guitarist Nick Sakes, and later on guitarist Tim Garrigan.

The Dazzling Killmen caught the attention of Skin Graft Records. They released two full-length albums, as well as several 7" singles before breaking up in the fall of 1995, immediately prior to a planned tour of Japan with Jim O'Rourke.[1]

Today, its members are better-known for their later projects - Nick Sakes has been in bands Colossamite, Sicbay, and xaddax. Darin Gray was in Brise-Glace, and has performed and recorded with Jim O'Rourke and with Glenn Kotche in On Fillmore. Blake Fleming was in Laddio Bolocko, The Mars Volta and Electric Turn to Me. Tim Garrigan, now based in Brooklyn, is a solo performer.
