Damion Romero (b.1970, Los Angeles, Calif.) has been actively recording, performing and organizing events in the L.A. area since the early 90s, working under the moniker Speculum Fight and now in his own name. Recent collaborators include Hiroshi Hasegawa (as Astromero), John Wiese (as Waves), John Olson (as Speculum Spyked), Daniel Menche and Zbigniew Karkowski. He also runs the P-Tapes label.
