Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Andrew Falkous (vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards).
  • Recording information: Monnow Valley Studios, Monmouthshire (10/2006-03/2007).
  • Formed by members of two disbanded Welsh outfits-- noise-rockers McCluskey and electro-punks Jarcrew-Future of the Left picks up where both those bands left off. The band's debut, CURSES, is full of surging, nervous, and fractured post-punk tendencies, following a line back to genre icons like Pere Ubu and the Pixies.
  • With songs like "Real Men Hunt in Packs" and "Suddenly It's a Folk Song," it's clear that Future of the Left have a quirky, sometimes comic sensibility, but this is no cutesy indie band. Confrontation is the primary m.o., and at times (the ferocious "Plague of Onces"), the band verges into post-hardcore and screamo territory. They're quirky, no doubt, but it's the razor-sharp angles of the band's tunes and the jagged stab of their rhythms that makes CURSES immediately appealing.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.94) - 3.5 star out of 5 -- "CURSES is so audaciously over the top you just have to laugh in delighted appreciation."

CMJ - "If they continue to shake up their formula in unexpected ways like this, these Welshman should have quite a future indeed."
