The Fartz, hailing from 'neath the dreary skies of Seattle, terrorized the Northwest in the early 80's and reformed in 1998 after a long hiatus.
Finally, here's an album of all new material channeling their pent up hardcore rage of post-Reagan years! Blaine's caustic paint-peeling vocals are still intact, fortified by the return of the original bassist/lyricist/art "genius" Steve, plus Alex Maggot Brain (ex-Accused) on guitar and Karl Fowler (ex-Detonators, North American Bison) on drums.
This album was set up, recorded, and mixed on December 22 and 23, 2001 at Private Radio in Seattle by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Zen Guerrilla, No WTO Combo, etc., etc.), showcasing some serious production chops in addition to the robust, no-frills songwriting of the Fartz.
These are the first new songs the band has written and recorded since they reformed four years ago. (As you recall, we re-issued their early 80's material in 1998 and last year's 'What's In A Name...?' was a re-recording of those songs.) The band's current lineup has been solid for the past three years, occasionally playing in the Seattle area to instill fear and reverence in the youth of today.
Steve Fart- original bass player, artist, lyricist.
Blaine "Zippy" Fart- worn out vocal chords.
Alex "Maggot Brain"- 666 string. Replaced Paul Solger in 1999. Alex was the bass player for Seattle's Maggot Brains--an early 80's outfit that simply featured bass, drums and vocals. He later went on to join Blaine in the Accused.
Karl Minus - the drums. Been with the Fartz since the day they reformed. Former member of the North American Bison and the Detonators. (A.T.)
THE FARTZ - "Injustice", 2002: Twenty years prior, THE FARTZ unveiled their happy talent for offending the easily offended via their blaring, club-footed clatter and lewd lyrics. "Injustice" finds them showing the youngsters how it's done in 2002, but this time the vehicle is inconceivable speed...and lewd lyrics. For a band determined not to take itself seriously, these guys kick up a major ruckus with "Injustice". Stuff like "God Fearing Christians" makes high-velocity ZEKE or SPEEDEALER sound like some kind of FLIPPER demo.
ACCÜSED fans that haven't checked this one out should take a break from Ebay (you're never going to get that original CD of "Open Casket" anyway) and lose themselves in these cheap thrills. "What Do You Stand For" would fit on any splatter rock collection, and if THE FARTZ version of "Buried Alive" was any faster, it'd be grindcore.
Plus, there's a bitchin' version of DISCHARGE's "State Violence, State Control". Damn, they thought of everything.(Peacedogman.com)
