I’ve seen this EVERYWHERE! All Music, Pandora, iTunes and more. All over the internet, there’s an ill informed bio for Anarchy Club that says my name is Keith Artez Smith, which it most definitely is NOT. And is to blame. I’ve tried to contact them to fix it, but my request seems to fall on deaf ears, as they most likely think I’m an imposter or something…

So for our fans, and anyone else who cares (or doesn’t) I will clarify: MY MIDDLE NAME IS NOT ARTEZ! My middle initial is D., and depending on the day and mood, I might say it stands for any number of things. Also, I never use it professionally. And the only alias I ever use is Anarkeith (a name coined for me by Helen McWilliams of Vagiant/ Tijuana Sweetheart fame).

…So, there, I got that off my chest. Doesn’t really change anything, except that now there’s a documented statement from the Anarchy Club camp stating that the All Music/ iTunes bio was poorly researched. Maybe, in ten years or so, they’ll fix it…

If you made it to the end of this rant, thanks. Sometimes we just need a virtual ear to vent to :-). I’m well aware there’s bigger fish to fry in the world today, but this thing has been like a splinter in my nuts since it’s spread around. Anyway, thanks again.

Yours in Rock,



  1. Hahaha!
    Yeah… i read somewhere that your middle name is Artez…
    I didn’t think that’s truth!
    So… Keith don’t worry haha ๐Ÿ˜€
    They will not spit at you if you don’t say your real middle name!

  2. Shame, Artez is a cool name.

    You should just make your middle name Ishbel ๐Ÿ˜€
