Fuck Knights – “Kristina!” b/w “Mod/Kilos”

Fuck Knights - "Kristina!" b/w "Mod/Kilos"

Fuck Knights - "Kristina!" b/w "Mod/Kilos"

With monikers like Sir Getsalottapus, Sir Fuxalot, and Lord Ballahag, Fuck Knights doesn’t take itself too seriously. Neither should you. The Minneapolis, Minnesota based band is about as in-your-face as a crusty garage rock trio could be. Take it or leave it, because the two sirs and the lord don’t seem to have time for much else.

“Kristina!” is frantic. The scrappy lo-fi punk will whip you into a frenzy, and the singer sounds like he’s stuck inside a dumpster. The lyrics, like “Oh Kristina, I wanna ball you in the shower”, won’t move most – unless you’re wholly devoted to couch surfing or living in your van. B-side “Mod/Kilos” is two songs recorded in one swift take. You get assaulted with more of the same gutter punk, with one song about the group’s enjoyment of certain substances and one about – you guessed it – getting laid.

The immediacy of now seems to be the focus of Fuck Knights, whether by design or necessity. A 7″ is a great format for on the cheap, lo-fi recordings. The group hasn’t been together all that long, and based on all that buzzing energy this is a trio that could just as easily implode as stay together for years to come. Something tells me that if you like to spazz out to frantic garage rock you shouldn’t wait to check this out.
