Welcome to the Universe of
Guitarist & Vocalist for the real-world band known as 1-900, and creator of the '80s-influenced sci-fi storyline that pits the fictional version of the Power Metalwave band against the interdimensional (and potentially Earth-conquering) phone handset known as The Operator.
Bassist for 1-900, and writer of the comic book series of the same name. DD brings to life the steampunk-esque story of 1-900, steeped in the technology of the 1980s, which pits the Metal factions of American freedom against the touchtone totalitarianism of the Synchrons.
Rise Of The Operator is the ashcan that introduces 1-900, Jacob Murdock (Modem), and the interdimensional Synchrons. It's a prequel to the upcoming Band Of Heroes comic.
You can read the whole thing right here, and you can get your hands on a physical copy (plus the TouchTone Attack CD single) by heading over to the 1-900-BEGINNINGS Kickstarter, which is live right now!

Don't Dial "0"...
It’s 1989, it’s Earth (Reno City, NV to be exact), and advancing 8-Bit technology is driving a strong economy and vibrant Metal scene. What more could you want?
The 1-900 story is set in the ‘80s
It's steampunk-esque, but instead of 20th-century technology reimagined in the Steam Age, it’s 21st-century technology reimagined in the 1980s
Some people always want more, and mad scientist Jacob Murdock is one of them.
8-Bit technology is cutting-edge in the 1-900 world
U.S. Government agent Murdock is conducting unauthorized experiments into the awesome power of 16-Bit technology. It doesn’t turn out so good, if you wanna know
Meanwhile, in another dimension…
The evil conquering race of energy beings known as Synchrons have, ages ago, harnessed 16-Bit energy for their nefarious purposes
Coincidentally, they’ve just set their crackling eyes on Planet Earth as their next conquest...
