Does It Offend You, Yeah? - No thought went into it whatsoever

Also known as DIOYY, these natives of English Reading, especially operating in the field of dance punk, electro house and synth pop. 

Band name Does It Offend You Yeah - No thought whatsoeverThe band's name sounds like a bold statement but is not intended as such. According to keyboard player Dan Coop, who was interviewed by New Musical Express (NME), the name was chosen on the spot: 'When me and James Rushent first started writing music together, we decided to put it up on MySpace. We needed a name to put as our profile name.' It was agreed that the first thing they would hear on TV would be used as their alias. The television was turned on and what did Dan and James hear? The voice of Ricky Gervais as David Brent in an episode of The Office: 'Does it offend you, yeah? My drinking?'. 

Coop: 'So we just went with that. No thought went into it whatsoever.' 

Active: 2006-present, GBR
