Friends of Dean Martinez is an instrumental rock band featuring members of Giant Sand, Calexico, and Naked Prey. FoDM has been described as a combination of bits of electronic static intertwined with surf rock guitar inspired leads, reminiscent of pre "dark side" Pink Floyd, all droning to the beat of Nick Mason-esque drums, stretched over 30 minute intervals.
