MONDAY 25TH FEBRUARY
FUCKED UP W/ SPECIAL GUESTS
Canadian Hardcore kids Fucked up have created a shroad of mystery that protects them from the real world, that has managed confrontation without using their secret identities as a gimmick. Seamlessly plowing through punk's varied past, a Fucked Up song can invoke the melodic anthems of British Oi, the brawny directness of early '80s American hardcore and the artistic autonomy of a band that doesn't care what its forebears have done before. Fucked Up manipulates everything from its lyrics and artwork to song length and writing to make a distinct, singularly unique point. Threading the best elements of Killed By Death obscurities through the Undertones' melody, Black Flag's aggression and Minor Threat's Marshall-driven guitars, Fucked Up rarely makes for direct comparisons, arriving instead at something wholly intense and new ... and isn't that the point?
