Demons can be seen as a continuation of the Canterbury Scene which involved acts like Soft Machine and Robert Wyatt. They do however move forward into new ground by mixing this Canterbury style with a noticeable Krautrock influence, especially that of Can. Some melodic lines and rhythmic patterns are strongly reminiscent of Frank Zappa's compositions. Other similar acts include Aksak Maboul, Pit er Pat, Pop-off Tuesday, Lightning Bolt, and Cheer Accident.
Blue Hawaii also runs a recording studio in Chicago's south loop called the Shape Shoppe. Besides Bablicon and Icy Demons, he has engineered and mixed many local and regional bands' records. Most recently he has worked with Beirut to record their newest double LP "March of the Zapotec" and a forthcoming LP with rapper Count Bass D.
