Album Review

It’s doubtful that even the most diligent collector has all of F****d Up‘s material, since the group's seven hand-pressed releases were generally only available as limited editions at select shows or internationally.

The group strays 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 Fucked Up have paid homage on record to pioneering anarchist movements and creative and political troublemakers of all...
