FM KNIVES: Useless and Modern: LP

Jul 09, 2009

This album isn't exactly new, but here's my two cents on it anyway: What Amdi Petersen's Arme is to hardcore punk, the FM Knives are to '77 punk. Unlike a band like the Briefs who sound like a modern update to that sound, this band sounds like one of the bands that pioneered that sound. And they're good. Real good. Also, on a purely historical note that will interest everyone, this album was recorded on my seventeenth birthday.
