Product notities

'You Thought We Were Ants' Recorded & Mixed by Jonathan Plum (Blind Melon, Candlebox, Pearl Jam, etc) and 6FG. 'it's only on your knees that you can see the things you thought you knew but missed from that altitude you thought we were ants stealing crumbs from you' Anyone who comes to 6FG for easy answers is looking in the wrong place. There's the name of the band itself, to start with.  The band has been known to claim it stands for 'Six Finger Girl,' 'Six Freaked Gnomes,' or even just part of the postal code for Nottingham, England.  They're teasing, of course.  In the end, 6FG is a signifier that only signifies itself. 'That's why we choose the name,' says front man Jason6fg.  ''6FG' is technically just a symbol, and it doesn't create many preconceptions in anyone's mind. Plus it looks cool on t-shirts.' But there is a style to 6FG's music, easy to recognize, impossible to pin down.  The band lists such diverse influences as The Damned, XTC, New York Dolls, The Clash, Depeche Mode, Sex Pistols, U2, and The Cure, and the end result sounds like all of these and none of them.  The music plays against your expectations and plays with the tension of opposites: a loose yet polished production, with lofty and heartfelt lyrics set against heavy and dissonant power-chords and catchy hooks; cynical jaded nihilism touched with boundless hope.  The cover of their first CD release featured a fetish model French-kissing a Ronald McDonald statue, a perfect visual metaphor for their flair for reinvention and contrast. Jason6fg used to be a fixture of the 80's East Coast punk/post-punk scene, playing in bands like Chronic Disorder and Thick as Thieves, and sharing stages with the Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, Moby, Gang Green and Nuclear Assault.  Chronic Disorder signed with LA's Posh Boy Records (Social Distortion, Agent Orange), with a release mixed by Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion, Epitaph Records).  'When Chronic Disorder fizzled I started building a back-catalog of chords and melodies in my head,' Jason says, 'It helped passed the time between bands, and once 6FG came together we had a lot to work with.' His subconscious seems to be satisfied with nothing less than reinventing pop music from the ground up.  Despite their 80's underpinnings, 6FG are writing and playing guitar-pop music for the new century, cheerfully ignoring the mainstream and it's pre-fab boy bands and teen divas and serving up great melodies, electric dissonance, shadowy feedback, and the occasional suicidal violin along with Jason6fg's distinctively powerful and vulnerable vocals - all with breathless enthusiasm.  Hearing them play is like hearing pop music for the first time. As one reviewer put it, it's music that's 'rough, ready, unsteady, and rumbles right at you - smart, unshaven and direct as a drunk with a bone to pick.' With a homebrew music video, a live multimedia stageshow presence, slick and polished production values on their CD liner art, and a canny eye for eye-popping graphics, 6FG demonstrate their keen grasp of rock's aesthetics. The band's lineup includes Jason6fg on vocals, guitars, and multimedia; Jason Larson (front man for Tacoma's Sea Jayne Trip) on vocals and bass; and Kyle Murphy on drums. 6FG's releases include 'Devotion,' a 6-song CD produced in 1999, and their recent full-length album, 'Songs the Lord Asked Us Not To Play.'  6FG releases their CDs on Squish Me Down Records, their own independent label. The label has also released 'Eighteen - A Compilation of Eighteen Original NW Artists to Benefit RAINN (the Rape and Incest National Network)', featuring a veritable Who's Who of local bands, including Ruston Mire, Doll Factory, Sea Jayne Trip, Chris McFarland, Murder of Crows and Noxious Emotion. 6FG worked on their new full length CD with renowned producer Jonathan Plum (Candlebox, Blind Melon, Pearl Jam). .
