Fist City Share ‘Fuck Cops’ From ‘Everything Is A Mess’

Fist City Fuck Cops

Everything about Canadian punks Fist City seems designed to piss me off. First off their name is just silly, conjuring images of ancient dominatrices in seedy city basements servicing Wayne Rooney. On top of this, the first track from their upcoming sophomore album, Everything Is A Mess (recorded by Steve Albini and due out for release 22nd June via Transgressive Records), is called ‘Fuck Cops’.  It all seems like extremely deliberate attempts to draw attention to themselves. Maybe that’s what you need to do in 2015 to get attention. The irony is, is that ‘Fuck Cops’ is actually a really cool off kilter noise/art/punk track that would draw attention even without its incendiary title.

The band will also be in the UK next month, playing festival dates inc. The Great Escape plus a London show at The Islington.
