FATAL FLYING GUILLOTEENS
Release "Quantum Fucking" TODAY on Frenchkiss!
"A punk-as-fuck groove for more than 30 minutes, with enough yelping and yanking to get a room of Jesus Lizard fans grinning." - DECIBEL MAGAZINE
"Aggressive, raw, cutthroat and chaotic is what best describes the Houston, Texas five piece Fatal Flying Guilloteens. In these days of modern, punk bands, with their "guyliner" and manufactured angst, one would think that the band's name is sort of symbolic. It's like coming out of nowhere and beheading the industry with their abrasive sound." - URB MAGAZINE
"This is exactly the right time for Fatal Flying Guilloteens to unleash their spastic, dissonant, and vile punk rock mess Quantum Fucking upon unwitting ears. The Houston band has been churning out a bastardized version of garage rock for nearly a decade now, yet on their first album on Frenchkiss Records, and their third full-length overall, FFG have the right amount of polish to let their oily blemishes glisten amongst the ooze from which they emerged." - TREBLE MAGAZINE
"A shifty, grooving and frenetic listen, all wrapped up in a tight half-hour." - PUNK NEWS
Quantum Fucking, the new album from Houston's FATAL FLYING GUILLOTEENS, is a lesson in, well, fucking; fucking your ears, fucking your mind, and fucking your insides (especially in the live setting). Formed in the late 90's, the Guilloteens have been causing a severe ruckus in the dark and septic underground over the past few years, thanks to non-stop touring w/ incredible bands, allowing the world to witness and be owned by a living case of what-the-fuck-is-this-ness, while simultaniously releasing a seminal back catalogue which has created a now cult-like following.
Often misdiagnosed at the hands of reviewers and listener alike, the reference is never the same. Compared to everything from The Stooges to Jesus Lizard to Drive Like Jehu, the otherwise straight line has been blurred. Point A to point B is lost in the translation and what occurs in between is signature in its delivery. With floor show swagger and fire on the teeth, FATAL FLYING GUILLOTEENS have abandoned the verse chorus verse devices of "once was" and have created the upright working model of "what will be"
Quantum Fucking: a fictitious true life account of young love in the streets, was commissioned by Frenchkiss Records of NYC and is the highly anticipated third full length release of Houston's Fatal Flying Guilloteens. Following their split ep with Clevelands This Moment In Black History for the GSL label, Quantum Fucking not only assumes clever asterisk placing for the more reputable publishing houses, but that listeners from the previously inducted to the previously unaware follow suit in short order. From the standing room only unhinged humid throws of Texas haunts and dives to sharing larger stages with the likes of Sonic Youth, The Fall, Blonde Redhead, and other established types, the illicit sound once uttered amongst the lips of those belonging to the 4th largest city in the lower 48 is growing as the Guilloteens become increasingly well traveled.
Suggestions for alternate phrasing of Quantum Fucking for aforementioned reputable publishers listed as the following:
Quantum Sexual act without intent to procreate
Quantum Third Base
These 5 young men return as John. Adams(drums/guitar) Shawn Adolph (guitar/vocal) Mike Bonilla (drums/vocal) Roy Mata (bass) Erik Bogle (guitar/vocal) respectively.
They plan to visit your town in the fall/winter 2007-2008.
