Armed with a loud bass, a louder, pencil-strummed guitar and a deceptively stripped-down drumkit, Fuck Knights have spent the past few years proudly upholding the hallowed tradition of EZ-setup portable scuzz-rock. Just set 'em up on the floor, wait for the crowd gather around and let 'er rip -- perfect for basement shows or VFW halls or anywhere the situation calls for '60s-vintage garage riffs with a deranged and blown-out modern appeal. No matter the size of the venue, they have room-filling power to spare, the kind of raw stuff that singes every tape it gets committed to (Exhibits A and B being the first two volumes of their FuKn Live! series). Sharing the bill will be Fret Rattles, who are celebrating the release of their appropriately titled debut album The First One.
