De Facto! Megaton Shotblast (2001)

De Facto was...

Cedric Bixler-Zavala
Omar Rodríguez-López
Jeremy Michael Ward (Died May 2003)
Isaiah "Ikey" Owens

Spawned from jam sessions that followed At the Drive-In shows, the musical explorations here by Bixler-Zavala and Rodriguez-Lopez evolved into their current project The Mars Volta. Megaton Shotblast is a beautiful example of experimental dub music infused with electronica, latin, salsa and jazz.
