Were they actually good? I heard the songs on their myspace and they seem quite good...
please listen to view from this tower. it's brilliant!
...may listen now :D
Enough talk. Just buy their record, okay?
Still need to buy that Medications record, although I'm not in too much of a rush...
Smart Went Crazy are better
Medications and Beauty Pill are definately worth listening to as well
Con Art and View From This Tower are two of the greatest records I've ever heard.
Really good more like.
Didn't they reunite for a show in Brazil not too long ago?
i went to www.dischord.com to check and found out that one of Void died yesterday :(

Faraquet To Re-Unite For Shows in Brazil, US
The members of Faraquet have announced plans to re-unite for a Brazilian tour this September and are gathering recordings from their various singles to look into re-issuing them onto a CD compilation. The Brazilian shows will feature a line-up featuring original members, Chad Molter and Devin Ocampo -- but not Jeff Boswell. However, the band hopes to play DC area shows upon the release of the CD with the full original line-up. Faraquet tour dates will be posted on the tours page as soon as they are confirmed.
Fans of Medications, fear not. According to the band members, the Faraquet reunion (Chad and Devin are in both Medications and Faraquet), and news of drummer Andy Becker's recent departure, do not spell the end of Medications. Chad and Devin will continue to move forward with their writing and hope to record a new Medications album later this year or early next.
Meanwhile, Andy Becker has started a new label called What Delicate Recordings which will make its debut with releases from avant - rockers, The Rude Staircase and Condor Moments in September and October respectively.
about Sean Finnegan. Great band despite their relatively small output and pretty much ahead of the game with what they were doing.
As for Faraquet, they really need to try and sort something out and release some new stuff. I found Medications a little disappointing and sounding like a watered down Faraquet without the songs.
-- too good.
