Daniel Higgs made his first appearance in the '80s hardcore punk band Reptile House, who broke up in 1986. Lungfish emerged in 1987 and released the Necklace of Heads 12" on Simple Machines. Almost immediately thereafter, they found their permanent home at Dischord, where for the next 20 years, Higgs and company created music that was challenging and thought-provoking. The most prolific of any Dischord band, Lungfish recorded 10 full-length LPs for the label before going on hiatus in 2006.
In the time since the pause in the Lungfish journey, Higgs has been pursuing a solo career, often playing just a feedback-drenched banjo and a jaw harp, and setting about to record his newest masterpiece, as well as working on a continued partnership with longtime musical / artistic compatriot Asa Osbourne in The Pupils. Most recently, Higgs has been gathering notoriety for his artwork.
