About Fred & Daily

Identical twins Peter and Paul Wilm were never truly social children. At family gatherings, reunions, and funerals, one would more than likely find them under a table somewhere, pointing and whispering funny things and imitating the people around them.

At home they spent nearly every waking hour dressed up in disguises, making their own “radio stations” and “hit songs” on countless audio cassettes. When their family members would chance upon them in these disguises, the twins would tell them that they were in fact “Fred and Daily,” and that they had no idea who these Peter and Paul characters were.

The songs on Fred & Daily’s debut album are essentially audio costumes. Each one is dressed up in such a uniquely strange and ridiculously entertaining fashion that sometimes you think you can guess who’s hiding underneath, but when you get a good look at the eyes, you find that you’re only looking at another mask!

Using the underground 80’s soundtrack of their youth as a wardrobe — borrowing from Yello, Cabaret Voltaire, Devo, The Residents, and Tom Waits, to name a few — along with their shared love of Saturday morning cartoons and Halloween, Fred & Daily’s “sound costumes” amuse, shock, frighten and oftentimes astound the listener.

Enter at your own risk and leave all traces of self at the door.
