FUCKEMOS: w.a.g.p.s.g?: 7”

The name alone was enough to make me roll my eyes, but it definitely set me up to be surprised. Who knows? This might be my new favorite band. I couldn’t have been more wrong (and confused). FuckEmos is a parody band – I think. The songs are a fusion of electronic bleeps and bloops and robotic vocals that are pitched down to sub-bass levels; I adjusted the speed of my record player countless times and the singing was always unintelligible. I don’t find FuckEmos’ schtick funny, and a band that describes themselves as “retard pUNK mETAL pop” just isn’t my thing. –Sean Arenas (Slope, sloperecords.com)
