Famines - Complete Collected Singles lp (Mammoth Cave Recording)


Mammoth Cave .."The Famines are our favourite band. They are a band that we gladly wave the banner for, a band we would take a bullet for, and they require your attention. Personally, Iíve only ever been brought to tears by a live show once, and it was for The Famines who were closing out Wyrd Fest II, in a performance that was both visceral and unexpectedly sweet. As Bruno Latour would say, we have been enrolled. The Complete Collected Singles is a small encyclopedia of minimalist-maximalist modernist noise garage songs from 2008 to present. These songs range from sly to monstrous, teething to biting. Indeed, The Famines are a band working in extremes, pushing two-piece dynamics simultaneously toward new highs and new lows. In a culture of disposability, The Famines offer something worth holding on to. When you find yourself weeding out your record collection in five years, you will hold onto The Complete Collected Singles. Famines guitarist/vocalist Raymond Biesingerís sleeve visuals give these things a lasting appeal.

Praise for The Famines - The Complete Collected Singles LP:†

"Where the fuck have I been? Not Canada, obviously. Because if I were, Iím pretty sure the Famines would be my favorite band. On the soon-to-be-released (pre-order available now, with a November 11 release date) The Complete Collected Singles LP, the Famines grab you from the beginning with ďHi Hi HiĒ and never really let loose throughout their eleven song assault." Get Bent (November 4, 2011)

"If The Who had come of age in the 21st century, this is what ďMy GenerationĒ might have sounded like. The mighty, very British-sounding racket that ensues here is all the more impressive when you realize itís being made by two guys from Edmonton." - John Sakimoto, Toronto Star (November 3, 2011)

"With the raw energies and blasted out recordings of this noise rock twosome, the Famines will melt your face, leaving you feening for more..." Mondo Nation (November 2, 2011)"
