Fist City - Demos Live Fisting (2009)


So, by accepting Fist City as a Calgary band, we have an excuse to post this tape, which we think is from about 2009. But maybe it's from 2010. Surprisingly, even though it's on Bart records and carries their impeccable design stamps, we can't find a mention of it on their website. So, instead, we're going to make up stuff about it.

This is pretty low-fi, which makes sense considering these are demos and a live set from the band. One of our favourite things on here is a half-minute, fuzzed-out version of the Shadowy Men standard "Having an Average Weekend," which perhaps foreshadows the band's involvement with Don Pyle. We already mentioned how much we like Fist City, and this tape does a great job of capturing their gritty, manic energy.

Get fisted!
