Fist City to play The Prince Albert

Canadian quartet, Fist City, are preparing to bring their super-charged basement fuzz-punk anthems back to the UK. Their new ‘AA’ side single ‘Let’s Rip’/’End Of The Good Times’ released through Transgressive Records on Fri 13 Nov. But if you can’t wait until then, they play at Brighton’s The Prince Albert on Sun 1 Nov.

Culled from the bands sophomore album ‘Everything Is A Mess’, released in June of this year, the single’s were laid down with producer Ben Greenberg (The Men, Hubble, Uniform) at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago. Both tracks buzz with the band’s trademark distorted garage-pop tone with lyrics that express both joy and destruction in equal measures and sounds that seize onto their influences (The Wipers, Sonic Youth, the Flying Nun roster).

“While ‘Let’s Rip’ is a tune about finding your partner in crime,” explains guitarist Evan Van Reekum. “The kind of partner in crime that gives you stick and poke tattoos and tries to fight you in an alley sometimes, ‘End Of The Good Times’ is about smashing your car into a wall in the middle of the night, throwing the keys into a gutter and leaving the steaming pile of shit behind. I guess it’s about getting older.”
