FUCKFACE: Self-titled: CD

May 18, 2010

A rhythmic blast from my past, straight out of Milwaukee. I was a fan of Fuckface from their frequent shows in Green Bay during my early twenties. They made quite an impression on me with at least four drummers pummeling floor toms behind acidic post punk guitars and vocals, or so I remember from the perspective of fifteen years later. Flash forward to 2010, when I get my new batch of reviews for Razorcake and, lo and behold, a fresh release by Fuckface. The sixteen tracks on the CD stand the test of time. To a certain degree, it is a time capsule to that meaty post punk sound that had a stronghold in the western Great Lakes region with bands like the Jesus Lizard, God Bullies, and the entire Amphetamine Reptile Records stable leading a hellaciously noisy charge in the ‘90s. Thank you Latest Flame Records for putting out this slab of Wisconsin noise history.
