Winterruption -- Fucked Up w/ Home Front and Soul Mates
- January 27, 2023 - Showtime: 8:00pm
While Canadian punk provocateurs Fucked Up play aggressive and incendiary music, that's hardly where their desire to stir up trouble begins and ends. The group stray far from the standard template of four-four punk stomp, incorporating extended instrumental workouts, unusual arrangements, and lengthy experimental passages along with the furious guitars and ranting vocals, while showing no reluctance to embrace other genres and influences along the way. Fucked Up have paid homage on record to pioneering anarchist movements and creative and political troublemakers of all stripes, incorporating startling historical photos in their artwork, embracing elements of obscure mysticism, and incorporating complex narrative lines to challenge and confront their audiences.
Created on the western edges of the infinite plains and prairies of coldest Canada, Edmonton, Alberta's HOME FRONT dance freely and madly along the edges of time and create their own moment. Their music is bubbling over with analog synth, guitar loops, slammed 808 drums, and anthemic vocal pushes tugging at the great moment in between the “death” of punk and the “birth” of new wave, pulling fresh sounds into their punk roots and shoving a studded leather jacket around a silk robe.
An ill-mannered rock ‘n’ roll outfit with tweaked-out riffs for miles and swagger to burn. They have the elusive severity of classic hardcore, but with an evolved and bizarre approach to tapping into that sound.
