Featuring two two piece garage n psych rock bands. Loud, heavy and full of energy. This split embodies everything that stolen body loves and is the second in the split series. You can clearly here the US garage sound VS the UK garage sound on this record….
Black Fruit are from Grand Rapids, Michigan and play garage n psych mixed in with surf and blues influences. Haunting distorted vocals over a backdrop of a driving guitar and solid drums gives Black Fruit a sound that can go in so many directions including self destruction. The band have previously released an album called She which has done very well online and put them solidly on the garage n psych map.
Factotum play heavy garage n psych rock with blues influences and a solid energy. From short punchy garage songs to heavy psych to grunge the band cover a lot of ground and do it with an energy not seen for a while. For two people they can really make a lot of noise. This is their 2nd release. We previously released their debut album Knife Gun as well as featuring a couple of tracks on Vegetarian Meat.
In sticking with the split series style the vinyl as half frosted clear and half red.
