Biography

On one hand, Future Of The Left are a band much like many other bands are a band. Three men, wielding bits of wood and metal strung with strings and skin, often to be found playing to rooms of other men mildly intoxicated on watery dilutions of strong lager. On the other hand, however, you can take that most basic factual definition and dispose of it by any means deemed socially and legally ... Read more in Amazon's Future of the Left Store

By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A musical renaissance is occurring in the wonderful Welsh capital but the band which anchors it has remained constant for many years. The Future of the Left were born out of a dastardly marriage of two former giants of the Welsh music scene Jarcrew and Mclusky. Their anthem "To hell with good intentions" remains one of the most underrated rock songs of all time and the bands mission statement. FOTL build on this pedigree but also transcend this legacy. They are the frontier leaders in a style of rock which is brutal, witty, venomous and hilarious. They transcend the River Taff with a leg on either bank and bagged last years Welsh Music Prize drinking the Angel Hotel's complete stock of Babychams.

On this new album "How to stop your brain in an accident" all the mighty forces conspire to see Andy Falkous and crew produce their best album since their last best album. By doing so it confirms Falkous as one of the the most inventive rock lyricists who owns a pen and the band as possibly the best in the UK. The recent surging single "Bread, Cheese, Bow and Arrow" obviously about "the staple diet of rodents" was a superb taster for the album. No one quite matches the prickly observations of Falkous not least the line "The loneliness took my ancestors/ that and the lions". Another single in waiting is one of the standout tracks "Singing of the bonesaws". A deep rumbling bass underpins an often hilarious lyric which starts with the pronouncement that "the music industry is lying to you" and on the way observes that "Our survey says shouting inanities in a regional accent is valuable to our culture/ look at Eastenders, Soccer AM or the Queens Speech". You would be foolhardy in the extreme not to consider a download if only to hear Falco's mock English accent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spikey power punk laced with cutting wit. 25 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
`The music industry is lying to you, it is telling you that you are excited, and you ARE excited' are the opening lines to stand out track `Singing of the bonesaws' from Future of the Left's latest `How to Stop Your Brain in an Accident'. Not only is it a great example of the musical direction the band have taken but it also showcases the barbed wit and sardonic lyrics that infiltrate the whole record. A kind of Wire meets the Sex Pistols but laced with humour and Billy Bragg-esque street politics the fourteen tracks here are the musical equivalent of a chainsaw through fresh wood. Guitars buzz, punky and to the point as the bass and drums rumble low as a perfect backdrop. But it's really in the vocals from lead singer Falco that the real magic lives whether its spitting an anti-testosterone rhetoric or disguising social commentary beneath the faux British accent of an old world news reader there isn't a dull moment in his delivery. Imagine a welsh Jarvis Cocker fronting Blag Flag and singing about the themes touched on in Monkey Dust and you're in the right ball park, funny power punk for the downtrodden and disenfranchised in today's broken Britain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big heavy noisy fun 9 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love this album.

Not quite sure how to describe Future of the Left. You could call it indie but intentional indie albums are dull shoe-gazing affairs and this album is anything but. It's got bold noisy metal riffs, infectiously catchy songs and a sense of humour. There is definitely a punk aesthetic in the sound.

'Donny of the Decks' is a personal favourite. A genius chorus combined with a killer drum riff that will make you jump around like an idiot. So brilliantly simple you'll wish you'd thought of it.

The off-beated riff in 'I Don't Know What You Ketamine' is so good it's difficult to describe without using expletives. 'Future Child Embarrassment Matrix' is ridiculously heavy for a quirky alternative band from Cardiff. For three and a half minutes Slipknot can get stuffed.

I have listened to this album way too much. I am in danger of wearing out the CD. It's ace.
