THE FANATICS: The Fanatics
By Claire Nelson
Yowzer. Get ready for a punch in the face. Get ready to like it. You'll know what I mean if you've seen the Fanatics before. This is the electronic version of Batman's BIFF! ZAP! POW!... and they don't even have a drummer. Why bother, they've got all they need. Electronic mayhem, punchy guitar riffery and techno-shocked beats hammered into your brain with more clout than you could ever expect from a two-piece. The Fanatics are surely one of the most energetic and least comparable bands around, and their debut will be enough to get your heart pounding and ass shaking. Pay special attention to the brilliant cover of the great Snapper track Buddy... and then there's the increasingly famous Models - you can't forget it. If you know The Fanatics, you'll want this. If you don't know them, it's time you did. Out now on CapitalRecordings.
