Product Description

Product Description

Critics have referred to Fraud as "exotic", "thrilling" and "intrepid". Combining the dynamics of rock with the techniques of jazz, compositions are nipped and tucked with the wizardry of electronics. The music is both wildly unpredictable and disturbingly unexpected. Like a stream of consciousness narrative, their compositions leave the listener disorientated yet gripped. With the ground constantly shifting, no audience can feel complacent in the company of Fraud.


"...It's what the phrase cutting edge was invented for, and a
very impressive debut." **** -- John Fordham - The Guardian, May 2007

"...a raspy ear-shredding sax wails over glitchy electronic
percussion, wobbly synth splurges and "baritone guitar". It's rather good"
*** -- John Lewis, Uncut magazine, June 2007

"...this young Hackney quintet are currently setting the agenda
for the future of British Jazz. Their clattering eponymous debut Fraud
(Babel) doesn't disappoint..." -- Robert Shore, Metro, May 2007

"Each time I listen to Fraud I hear something intrepid
and intensely contemporary sound. Music this spontaneous, focused and
robust is extremely hard to find." -- Pete Wareham, Acoustic Ladyland

"Welcome to the new century of improvised music" -- Jazzwise, Feb 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a whiff of deception! 13 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Fraud are THE BUSINESS! Their music has everything - power, subtlety, integrity, innovation, beauty, ugliness .......
Difficult to classify but then again that's possibly the whole point and possibly why this excellent album has not yet been followed - these peerless musicians seem of such a high degree of creativity that the musical world and his wife rush to join them in all manner of ensemble.
Listen out for a blissful dissolution of improv, bebop, funk, punk and techno with a liberal sprinkling of the smarter shades of rock and metal.
These guys have gone on to deservedly reap many awards, and from folks who know their onions, so give 'em a go and then on, as have I, to all the other, many and equally brilliant musical outlets which Messrs Allsopp, Giles, Westerhus and Hochstratte have provided both before and since this brilliant masterpiece.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Critic on Fraud 12 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is for those that want some background music albeit strange electronic noises with a jazzy saxophone blowing away in the distsnce. It's genre, Jazz, ambient. Whether its got the x factor, I don't think so; it is definitly not something I would play to my mates at home. It is more sax and weirdness than full throttle rockn'roll. Its the sort of album you might pick up on a rainy saturday, think you have found a true gem but find once in the CD player it is just a random piece of background muisc for the insane.
