(UK) Fake Club, the raucous and brash London guitar band whose do-it-yourself-because-we-do-it-better-anyway attitude has finally brought them to the release of their debut album, ‘FUCKABLE’, set to release on March 24th.
This balls to the wall, diamond in the rough is a must-listen record for 2014. Anagrammatically self-titled, written and released by the band themselves, it’s an impressive 10 track onslaught of honest rock & roll music that flashes between pounding drums, screaming guitars and killer-chorus’ perfectly entwined with unforgettable riffs. The record is produced by FAKE CLUB and Oliver Son, mixed by Kevin Killen (Tori Amos, Elvis Costella, Kate Bush) and mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig (Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Daft Punk).
FAKE CLUB boast a genre-defying ethos, sound and line-up that transcends them into a realm of their very own; their musicianship, writing prowess, mind blowing live force and admirable spirit set them apart from all of their counterparts. Opener and live favourite, ‘Do What You Got To Do’ sets the tone emphatically with a heavy groove and a riff that just gets you. ‘Do It Like Me’ and ‘Generation’ are songs to walk the streets & grow up to while ‘Midnight At Koko’ shows off the band’s delicate attention to melody that can sometimes get overlooked. (As seen in the Universal Pictures release ‘Powder Room’ late 2013).
‘FUCKABLE’ sets the tone of a new rock inspired musical landscape, representing the imminent wave of accomplished girl bands that ditch the ‘girl’ tag and make honest, fun music for a new generation.
Fake Club will be supporting The Answer on their UK tour this February and ‘FUCKABLE’ will be available on iTunes from March 24th.
