Babyland is a performance-based "independent electronic junk punk" band from Los Angeles, California, featuring Dan Gatto performing vocals and electronics and Michael Smith on percussion.
Formed in 1989, they are advocates of the DIY punk ethic and part of the musical underground culture. They are well regarded in Industrial music, punk rock, indie rock and electronic music communities. Known for their live performances, Babyland have shared the stage with bands such as The Offspring, Legendary Pink Dots, Dystopia, Foetus, Add N to (X), Nitzer Ebb and Psychic TV. Most of their live performances occur in underground locations that have included places like LA's Jabberjaw, Kontrol Factory, The Smell and 924 Gilman in Berkeley.
Recordings prior to 1996 were released on the Los Angeles Punk rock label Flipside, and the band participated in several of this organization's Mojave Desert events. Subsequent material has been released by the band's own label, Mattress. The fifth full length (The Finger) and a compilation of earlier songs (Decade One) was released in Europe by Dependent Records. Most recently, a deal with Metropolis Records has resulted in the commercial release of the sixth album (Cavecraft).
Their slogan is: "We will not go away"
