Stuck On Repeat: The Cutting Sound Of FM Knives

fmknives.jpgWe rescued FM Knives’ 2001 debut Useless and Modern from a used-CD bin a while back, years after our original copy got lost in some inter-office move. It was worth the $2, as Useless is full of the sort of brash, two-minutes-and-you’re-done punk tunes that recall the Thermals and the Exploding Hearts, especially on the following super-bratty tracks:

FM Knives – 16 D.O.A. [MP3, link expired]
FM Knives – Down The Street [MP3, link expired]

    Did you get a chance to see the one show they played in NYC at Pianos? Holy moley.

    Great band. Hail Sacramento! 20/20 was the standout track on this, though. Now you guys need to put some Yah Moh’s (sucks that bands like them and Lifter Puller have to move to NYC and change their name to get noticed) and Sewer Trout up.

    Super post

    I know how learning piano can be. My brother is a really good piano player, and myself I am making my way as professional .

    I recommend to anyone who’s thinking of starting to playing piano to read a book or two on this topic, as there so many mistakes and blunders that are possible to make when you first start. And keep playing each and everyday!

    Thanks for sharing this with your us.
