The FAPS have been a long time coming. Since their early teens, Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata have been exploring the sonic landscape with little boundaries. Working together in the indie-punk outfit, Go Jeff!!!, and apart in projects ranging from acoustic folk to thrashy skate-punk, they each developed a distinct musical perspective that is both broad and focused. Drawing influence from the likes of Q and not U, Liars, and Nick Cave, The FAPS throw out catchy, eclectic post-punk noise arranged in whatever way they see fit - raw, heavy and strange. Lyrics come from both parties and cover a lot of ground; from imaginary murder mysteries to personal life experiences all wrapped up in surreal metaphors, vivid imagery and a touch of humour. For better or worse, this naturally different 2-man band won't go unnoticed.
