Fucked Up

Bathroom session part II – After having raged in a bathroom in Toronto on MTV Live some weeks ago, the Canadian band Fucked Up returns to the lavatory – this time abstaining from flexing their muscles – for a musically impressive performance. The heydays of British Oi or the early 80s American hardcore have surely waned, when at the beginning of the new millennium Fucked Up formed to a refreshing breeze. They succeed to combine an archaic and brawny straightforwardness with the openness for melody and choral anthems. There is an infecting power to their songs that gets young kids moshingly destroying MTV sets and J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend or Moby to rock with them at their 12-hour marathon gig in October 08 in New York. As furiously Father Damian aka Pink Eyes may roar and bawl, as inviting it is to join in bellowing. Damian’s disarming grin might even disperse your grandma’s fear and make her sense the awesome fun behind noise and destruction.
