THE FADES Score Paranoiac Punk Soundtrack For Night Horror Parties On Halloween

Standout longpayers

25 October 2022

Who: 4-piece from London with a punk DIY
aesthetic making noise since the mid-90s.


“Tales of fear and loathing in darkest South London.”

Turn Up The Volume: Instrumental chainsaw chant Time Is Right opens the blustery debates. Next up comes a tenacious trio of sharp-teethed garage eruptions (You Follow
Me Around / The Pessimist / Drives Me On
). Wait, we only get started.

Scream-out-loud belter Lost My Job is based on a real-life situation and having to
deal with selling your stuff on eBay to make it through) and People In General features
a psychedelic monologue by Les ‘Fruitbat’ Carter from London’s post-punk legends Carter USM.

From there on the pace and vibe changes showing The Fades‘s versatile songwriting side with the horns-injected rollercoaster title track, the paranoiac mid-tempo guitar-deranged jams of Know It Along and Television and sing-along closer Wake Up Generation, a the Clash-like reggae earworm featuring (again) vivid female . Applause, applause, applause.

A Band You Should Stalk – From London THE FADES With New Anxious Single ‘YOU FOLLOW ME’

aesthetic making noise since the mid-90s.

“The song recalls the time when lead singer Dave Lightfoot was the unfortunate recipient of too much attention from an ex-partner but was also experiencing a campaign of harassment from his cat. Due to a split, Dave was now around the house a lot more and the cat would not leave him alone. Sitting on top of his computer keyboard, following him from room to room, hassling him constantly for food and attention.”

Turn Up The Volume: Expect a sizzling steamroller going everywhere fast.
Energized by hectic guitars, a muscular drums/bass tandem, and frontman
Dave Lightfood‘s anxious vocals. This is a band you should stalk, but beware
of night terrors.
