Fatal Figures are the members of The Blowtops latest, a band I'm just getting to know also on Big Neck Records. These guys are making it happen in way way western New York where it's winter six months a year. Buffalo was the big city we would occasionally drive to to either go across the border to drink in Canada or go to Darien Lake and see a huge show. I played with someone from Buffalo who would tell me about all kinds of cool shit that was happening and I imagined living there one day. Their latest builds on that garage intensity with some hardcore influences while keeping that raw, live sound.

Fatal Figures - Blue Zed Reviews


Reviews from 5 zines on Blues Zed!

Here is just one from Ripple Effect:

Fatal Figures - Blue Zed b/w Alright
Released earlier this year on Big Neck Records, the Fatal Figures are made up of Aaron, Tracy, and Scott from the Blowtops. After a decade of plowing one gushy vein of garage rock horror show after another with the Blowtops, the remaining members decided to move on and explore new territory.  While that sounds like something dramatic, in reality the Fatal Figures are doing what they've always done best.  This is pure garage punk-death rock n roll.  We got amped up, creeped-out Cramps here, some serious Pussy Galore and a whole lotta fun.
"Blue Zed" is the highlight here with Aaron Adduci being a hypnotizing front man.  I don't know what this cat takes before a show, but lock it up, you don't want that getting loose in public.  His vocals are a sputtered death moan of Boris Karloff meets The Sonics hysteria.  The bottom end of this song is purely subsonic.  An intense, mesmerizing listen. "Alright" is a Pussy Galore cover and really holds place until these cats dawn the creepshow punk and blast out their next original.   Released on blood red vinyl, of course.

............"The A-side is a lurching, muscular, blues-based dirge mired in so much blown-out muck and filth it could have been recorded in a grave. “In the red” doesn’t even come close. The flip side is a hyperactive PUSSY GALORE cover recorded in much the same fashion. Imagine a combination of Jon Spencer, Nick Cave, and Lux Interior but performed without event those artists’ casual acquaintance with sonic fidelity"...........

KFJC 89.7 FM

Red-ass vocal holler, slack Rickenbacker bass rough-throats along, buzz whirr guitar. Boozy, chomp rock from the leftovers of the Blowtops. On the flip-side, a cover of Pussy Galore’s “Alright” brings a little more karate to the mix. Again the bass leads the charge, guitar just zings in feedback on the verses, the vox are a bit more tweaked/treated…kind of a tunnel effect early on then blares the air towards the end. Not quite Mainliner as a US bar band, but definitely a Pabst Blue Zed ribbon kind of rock.

Razorcake:

FATAL FIGURES: Blue Zed: 7” This here is a two-song single featuring members of the Blowtops. Fans of that band will find a whole lot to like here; the same noisy garage-influenced stuff is at play. Not my favorite sound, but this band is as good as any of their influences. –Mike Frame (Big Neck)
