Friendly Foes


ARTIST / BAND: Friendly Foes
SONGS (MP3): My Body (Is A Strange Place To Live) /Get Yr Shit Together

ALBUM: Born Radical

Label: Gangplank Records

INFO: Inspired as equally by 70s punk-songwriters like Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello as they are the glory days of 90s indie rock (Superchunk, Guided By Voices, Chisel) – with a healthy dose of Husker Du and Replacements-style bash ‘n pop thrown in for good measure – Friendly Foes craft rag-tag, rough around the edges rock songs that do away with pretense. Instead, they choose quick routes to get to the gooey guts of what makes for rock-solid jams: whip-smart lyrics and anthemic melodies delivered at an unrelenting pace.
