Biography

The History

The term ‘under the radar’ could have been coined for the band Farrah. Releasing their first single ten years ago plus three critically acclaimed albums, which have propelled the band to sold-out tours in the Far East and Europe, the UK mainstream has taken a long while to wake up to the band’s shimmering hook-laden pop.

This album is jam packed with great songs. Farrah start from this basic and often forgotten premise. Write a great tune and the rest follows from there. Simple production doesn't harm this record because the tunes and lyrics shine through.Life's Too Short, Terry, Living For The Weekend, Don't Let Them Get You Down are stand out tracks. Within a single play you are humming away and longing to press repeat. They deserve chart success if only to alert more people to how great they are. I stumbled across them but then I was the Lucky One.

I discovered Farrah at a Colchester gig where they were opening for Four Star Mary. From the first note of 'Terry' to the end of 'Goodnight God Bless' this album will have you dancing round your room. Farrah make it impossible to stand still when listening to such upbeat, universally appealing songs. The cd has been on my player non-stop since I got back and my fave has to be 'Tired of Apologising' which I never seem to stop singing. 5 extremely well deserved stars out of 5!

Unashamed powerpop is the name of the game for these sexy skinny tie wearing geezers trapped in the Tardis with Tom Baker on a journey through songs that make you cry and smile at the same time, No mean feat. If you like Supergrass, Teenage fanclub, The wannadies and Elliot Smith then this is for you. Outstanding

Y'all, it really is worth pond hopping sometimes 10 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I hear it's not easy trying to sell the U.K. sound in the States. Believe me, I know. I live here in America and honestly couldn't tell you why. However, when a band like Farrah comes along, I hear it and think `This band can't miss'. Then all I can ever really do is cross my fingers and hope. Truly, I love to hear a band burst forth with so many obvious influences: Beatles, Cars, Beach Boys, Oasis; plus their self-proclaimed acknowledgements Supergrass, The Vapors, The Rubinoos, and Fountains Of Wayne. Not to mention what I hear as an even longer list.
Nevertheless, these chaps are certainly bright and trendy. I get the impression that this band is, only now, just beginning to spread their wings; and if their flight is any more awe-inspiring than their takeoff, you should just be still and look up: watch and listen. I can promise you'll enjoy a spectacular fanfare and display; and if you'll only give Moustache a chance. I know it'll grow on you. I think what has amazed me most about these guys, is their ability to punch out solid and hard hitting riffs song after song. From the love-challenged lyrics, the steamroller percussion, some white noise heavy grind, to the centrifugal guitar solos, you can tell that Farrah appreciates the full range of musical pop-rock styles, multi-part harmonies, and some non-classic retards. (No and don't be a retard. I mean: rhythmic effects of tempo.) There are the moody, love-challenged songs that have me hooked; like `Tired of Apologising' with those U.K. horns sounding out from our isle-cousins, `Lois Lane', and `Don't Let Them Get You Down'. Not to mention the tunes that aggressively levitated me straight up out of my seat. `Seventies Superstar' rocks with a slammin' new-century-retro appeal. (I definitely want to hear this one at the concert.) The Beatles-vision, too short `Only Happy When She's Sad' or Lennonisque `Good Night God Bless'. Which, by the way is a fabulous ado to end a well-strewn Peppers theme. You'll be blessed with a matrix of awesome drum licks, acoustics, glamour rock, dangling pianos, and an occasional blues'y almost hip hop feel. With all of this plus those serious eighties genre cuts like `Talk about Nothing' and the terrific stanza to stanza transitions offered in `Life's Too Short' prove this album is well suited for the bipolar disorder in all of us.
Therefore, I will simply state to my fellow neighbors, `Y'all, it really is worth pond hopping sometimes'. I give Farrah a perfect `10'.

Ken king's Review (Junkmedia) 12 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just in time for summer, Farrah has released a power-pop confection of cavity-inducing performances. Lush harmonies. Jangling guitars. Crashing drums. Throbbing, yet melodic bass. "Oooohhhs" and "Aaaaahs" shimmer in the background. Hummable songs abound, as well as choruses that beg the listener to sing along with them. If this CD were available as a set of scratchy 7" records, one would assume that a treasure trove of early 1970s pop had been located. It might also sound more appropriate if it were delivered via a transistor radio, as Farrah fits in well with musical peers such as Cheap Trick, the Raspberries, Badfinger and other three-chord, strategists.
Rubinoos "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" is the CD's token cover, and it gives a pretty good sense of the state of affairs that Farrah bring to the table. Frankly, for my taste, Farrah do a better job with it than do the Rubinoos. The advent of the post-punks helped to toughen the Farrah version of the song a bit, which removes a bit of the saccharine self-consciousness present in the original.
Their connection with power-pop movements of the 1970s is underscored lyrically as well as musically. "Seventies Superstar" could be read as an unironic description of a day in the life of Keith Partridge. At the other end of the musical and emotional spectrum is the skeletal "Only Happy When She's Sad," a brief and understated reflection on the pain of a dysfunctional relationship, written from an empathetic male perspective.
This is an ideal album for you if: you've worn out your copy of Raspberries' Best; you like to sing in the car; you like your music to have a certain seasonal resonance; the guitar, bass, drums format, to your thinking, is best used when playing aggressive, yet melodic, pop music.
Reviewing this CD is something like reviewing a bowl of chocolate pudding. It's pretty much the same from start to finish, it's really good, and even it you love it, you won't want to make your diet of this alone. Buy and enjoy, but in power-pop moderation.

This record shines! 12 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At last some real talent. Songs with tunes. Harmonies to die for. Riffs that could kill at 100 paces. This is a must-have album of classy britpop/powerpop genius. It's in my top 10 favorite albums ever.
Farrah Rule! 8 Sept. 2001
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is one of very few albums which has no tracks which are far weaker than others- they are all amazing! I don't think anyone could really hate Farrah's music (except maybe all you die hard Slipknot and dance music fans). Everyone buy this now and go to a farrah gig when they tour near you because this band are going to be huge one day. Plus the uncle of the bassist has the uk longest moustache!- what other reason do you need to support them?...
