The Fartz, hailing from 'neath the dreary skies of Seattle, terrorized the Northwest in the early 80's and reformed in 1998 after a long hiatus.
Finally, here's an album of all new material channeling their pent up hardcore rage of post-Reagan years! Blaine's caustic paint-peeling vocals are still intact, fortified by the return of the original bassist/lyricist/art "genius" Steve, plus Alex Maggot Brain (ex-Accused) on guitar and Karl Fowler (ex-Detonators, North American Bison) on drums.
This album was set up, recorded, and mixed on December 22 and 23, 2001 at Private Radio in Seattle by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Zen Guerrilla, No WTO Combo, etc., etc.), showcasing some serious production chops in addition to the robust, no-frills songwriting of the Fartz.
These are the first new songs the band has written and recorded since they reformed four years ago. (As you recall, we re-issued their early 80's material in 1998 and last year's 'What's In A Name...?' was a re-recording of those songs.) The band's current lineup has been solid for the past three years, occasionally playing in the Seattle area to instill fear and reverence in the youth of today.
Steve Fart- original bass player, artist, lyricist.
Blaine "Zippy" Fart- worn out vocal chords.
Alex "Maggot Brain"- 666 string. Replaced Paul Solger in 1999. Alex was
the bass player for Seattle's Maggot Brains--an early 80's outfit that
simply featured bass, drums and vocals. He later went on to join Blaine in
Karl Minus - the drumms. Been with the Fartz since the day they reformed.
Former member of the North American Bison and the Detonators.
The title track "Injustice" was featured on our latest label sampler
"These Seattle punks may be famous for lending members to Guns and Roses and The Accused, but their infamy comes from discs like 'Injustice.' Armed with just noise and oversimplification, The Fartz stick it to W. and the system he represents. The back cover is a 9/11 memorial; however, since it reminds us we're all just 'victims of our collective leaders' ongoing stupidity and inability just to get along,' we'd imagine it ain't hanging in the Pentagon."
