A frantic seizure in pop's cerebral cortex, The Bastards Of Fate will not be silenced.
The band's cult debut album 'Who's A Fuzzy Buddy?' committed gleefully evil operations on the flesh of pop culture, a tumbling mosaic of ideas which inspired at every turn.
Somehow, it found an audience. Leaving behind their home in Roanoke, Virginia, the group were able to take this mesh, this collage of disparate spirits out on the road. It was all rather inspiring.
A genuine blast from the left field, The Bastards Of Fate have now seen fit to deign the world with another full length.
The gloriously titled new album 'Vampires Are Real And Palpable' drops this Autumn, with Clash able to premiere the video for 'One True Love'.
Sheer manic invention, it sits somewhere between Captain Beefheart's demonic desert blues and the retro-Futurism of Ariel Pink.
All those are just trite comparisons, though, since The Bastards Of Fate come off like no one before or since.
