One of the true gems of the local scene, New Fangs is made up of current and former members of The Blow Up, Tractor Sex Fatality, Make Out Choir, Texas Funeral, Tokyo Drifters, The Gimmicks, The Fall-Outs, Flying Dutchmen and The Sultanas. Here’s what The Stranger has to say about their record, Bayonets…

“The latest project of guitarist/singer Dave Bessenhoffer brings elements of his other bands, the Blow Up and Tractor Sex Fatality, to a climax of overdriven, anxious garage punk. Together with drummer Ken Viste, Austin transplant/guitarist Ron Miller, and bassist Karlis, Bessenhoffer steers New Fangs like a muscle car loaded with an airplane engine, driving his crew across sharply angled ground tread by local acts like the Popular Shapes minus the poppier choruses, or like Drive Like Jehu cut with the dry delivery of The Fall.” – The Stranger

Tune in to Audioasis every Saturday from 6-9 pm for three hours of local and live bands from all areas and genres of Northwest music!
