“Gloomy gothic punk…pounding rhythms… tape” – Factsheet Five #29. Many Music Critics argue that the cover design done by Tami Diederich for the Diedrop 1986 release was the”cult classc” or underground basis of much of the line drawing art of the Albums made in the 1990’s.

DieDrop consisted of three dudes who went to the same highschool, surfed the same beaches, and all ended up at the same college Virginia Tech. Mark was more of a surfer dude, while Idle liked his weed, and Tommy liked his beer. The band formed around a Tascam four track cassette recorder, that idle got for Christmas. Mark came over Christmas day and we were laying down tracks right away, some of which made it on to the DieDrop Tape. There were times where after parties we both crashed with different chicks on their bunk beds in the girl dormitory. Tommy wasn’t on most of the recordings but went on to play bass in Idle’s next band The Un Called Fore.
