MoRE FiENDS

An explosion of vivid colours both in looks and personalities, More Fiends prove to be illuminating musically too. With superfuzz thrash, disoriented voodoo rhythm and gloriously camp vocal extremities, they have come up with one far out wild party. The powerful effect of the Fiends’ multi-ingredient homebrew is a drug free buzz for quality kitsch lovers everywhere.

More Fiends freebase an explosive mixture of hardcore and no wave–the two primal movements that’ve done so much to shape the course of the U.S. underground this generation–with a healthy appetite for the bizarre. A garishly cluttered wall of sound, More Fiends seem like the soundtrack of a street battle being waged in a phone box. We’re talking overcrowded here and there’s one helluva lot of debris floating around in this mix. Raw shreds of post no wave fallout rub shoulders with the off the beaten track eccentricities of Euro-American punk. Colourfully eccentric in the extreme and fatally shaped by their urban environment, More Fiends are by turns hilariously intense and crazily off the wall. — SOUNDS magazine, London England
