FM KNIVES: Keith Levine/Valentine: 7″

In the pages of this very magazine, the FM Knives claimed that they sound nothing like the Buzzcocks, but I’m here to tell you that they were lying. I’m gonna go so far as to say that they’re trying to sound like the Buzzcocks, because there’s no other way for them to pick up Pete Shelley’s British accent growing up in Sacramento. Still, that doesn’t stop the FM Knives from taking their influences and making something fresh and new. And, no matter how you look at it, the FM Knives are fucking awesome and this two-song forty-five is worth every last penny.
