BBC Review

First of all, there's that name. Don't let it put you off. F*ck Buttons may be the latest in the line of 'noisy' band names that alert/frighten, but really up against the likes of Jing Jang Jong and Does It Offend You Yeah?, it's relatively harmless, bar the obvious swearing.

Hailing from Bristol, the duo of Andrew Hung and Benjamin John Power formed the Buttons in 2004. Initially to bring about sonic terrorism, make as much noise as possible and to record something genuinely painful to the listener's ears. The duo soon saw the qualities of their extreme side and harnessed it into something far more transcendent and amazing. Using found sounds, pensionable electronics and tribal rhythms, upon which they overlay effected voices and distorted yelping - No, come back! If you were turned on by the Holy F*ck album of 2007 (clearly the word du jour in the realm of the far out), or indeed are on nodding terms with the work of Sunno))), Neu!, Blood Everywhere, Spaceman 3 or Can, Street Horrrsing - naturally named after a mythical equestrian sport - is the next album you need to wrap your head around.

Kicking off with Sweet Love For Planet Earth, any obstacles that could've been cleared in a bit for daytime radio play are still in place, building as it does into a head-nodding level of skree and thrash metal shouting. Imagine the austere workings of John Carpenter amped up into distortion, and you may actually believe the world is ending, or at least a hell mouth has opened up at the newsagents around the corner. Race You To My Bedroom/ Spirit Rise opens up the possibility of the Buttons doing sexy. God help anyone who would use this as a seduction tool, unless their bedroom is done in a tasteful Hellraiser theme.

At six tracks, Street Horrrsing is just enough noise before you start to pine for something more straightforward and tuneful. Loud, in a darkened room and aided by certain relaxants, it's like a musical re-birthing session - something that could provoke out-of-body experiences. Listened to in the context of a shoddy weekday, it could drive you to the paracetemol. However, there's an interesting form of elegance to F*ck Buttons, and while it's very easy to put out shields of unlistenableness, to have made an album as satisfying as Street Horrrsing takes a special brand of perversity that stops short of being sheer indulgence. F*ck Buttons have all it takes to rise above their attention-seeking name and become something very special indeed. --Ian Wade

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrrsing Around 3 Feb 2009
By DB
Format:Audio CD
I came across this album by accident on the internet, then simply had to buy it. Any fans of experimental music should investigate these guys. Street Horrsing is an avalanche of tribal drums and grinding Mogwai-like guitars countered by soft synthesizers and deft melodies. Each of the tracks tends to build up to a screaming crescendo and various samples and patterns emerge throughout the whole album...coming to an almighty climax in the last two tracks. If you catch a track in isolation, you can be forgiven for thinking that it's all a bit too weird, but as a whole I think Street Horssing is easily one of the best albums I've purchased in the last few years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rabbit in the headlights 25 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
I read somewhere that this was better listening than Animal Collectives' latest offering.......i'm not sure.Perhaps because i'm a pop fan at heart. Let's face it,anything slightly experimental and requiring some listening will either be classed as utterly pretentious or fascinating and great by others.It depends where you lie. It is hard listening and sometimes scary and rather lovely...but i think rewarding. I burned my copy onto the computer and then sat there utterly hypnotized! Rabbit in the headlights! They've definitely got something. I will say one thing though...drop the name.It's not big or clever. Listen to it with an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Euphoric noise 30 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
Bought this totally on a whim, as I was intrigued by both the name of the band and the album name, definitely not mainstream so it fitted into my music library quite nicely. Not sure what to expect, I put it on, and as soon as the opener got going I knew I was in for something a bit special. Sure, not everyone will like it, but me having grown up around oddball, leftfield electronica and noise music love it. It's the kind of droney album you can simply get lost in, yes it may be repetitive but thats the point. You can totally immerse yourself in the music, but be warned - it may hurt your ears if listened to loud enough. But the sweeet little melodic hooks in each of the tracks make it easier to listen to so it isn't wall to wall static for 6 tracks. Best track for me is Race You To My Bedroom/Spirit Rise, a 9 minute euphoric monster which you can completely lose yourself in

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful noise - shame about Mr. Shouty 16 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Any fool can make an unholy racket and call it art. It takes talent and a nuanced ear to be able to take noise and craft it into something beautiful. A bit of musical structure, the odd tune and knowing when to turn the volume up (and down) help too. Perhaps this is why I prefer MBV over Merzbow, Mogwai over Wolf Eyes. FB make precisely the kind of noise-based music I love.

FB's first album 'Street Horrrsing' is a curious experience, especially on first listen. Like Mogwai, they use a limited palette of sounds to create their music - loud distortion, tinkly piano, church organ, tribal drums, yelping and someone screaming obscenities into the void. Despite the high volume and abrasiveness, the warm layers of distortion and the endless repetition lull you into a calm, meditative state. I'm reminded of the more upbeat moments of Seefeel's 'Quique' played at maximum volume through a transistor radio. ...And then the Masonna-esque screaming starts, which kind of ruins the mood. It's a bit like crawling under a warm duvet on a cold winter night, only to find that someone has hidden a cactus in there with you. Still, on 'Bright Tomorrow' or 'Colours Move' the whole experience is genuinely euphoric, especially at high volume.

On their subsequent album ('Tarot Sport'), FB fortunately ditched the screaming, but then drifted a little too close to creating a soundtrack for Saturday afternoon sport (see 'Olympians'). Here they are at their noisy best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Music 29 May 2009
By AB
Format:Audio CD
I tracked down this band last year and fell in love with them.

I cannot stress how much this band changed the way i listen to and make music.

The opening track "Sweet love for planet Earth" - turns reality upside down. Beauty folds in on itself and turns into waves of static joy. The rest of the album falls nicely in line behind this.

I look forward to seeing them live in 2009 having missed them at Leicester's Summer Sundae festival last year.

Buy, live with, let it take you on a fantastic journey.

This is a vital record by one of the most important bands of the last 10 years.

Now go buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Noise + trance 30 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
If like me you're interested in some of the Noise bands that are doing the rounds at the moment but wish they would throw in the odd tune( I know, maybe not the point of the genre)then try this.
This is big,loud and ear bleeding but also works on a more trance like level.Six drawn out drones with sweet little melodies tickling them along.It has the same meditative effect as the likes of Alice Coltrane ,Gorecki,Earth..
Only four stars because I want to hear the push the boundaries even futher next time.
great debut.
