Fuck Buttons

Fuck buttons? Yes indeed!!! They are freakin top...
Noise beautiful noisy sweet noise. Scarey, sweet and frightening. Comforting and fuzzy. Warm yet cold...very cold, but warm still. Please buy, download...whatever.
I'm in love.

Fuck Buttons was conceived by Andrew Hung & Benjamin John Power in the winter of 2004, Bristol UK. 
Initially the group was born as an outlet for their nihilistic-noise tendencies but quickly, the two Fuck Buttons realised they could harness the use of noise as a tool to immerse and evoke. No longer afraid of melody or rhythm, the group started fusing all these elements to the point when drone becomes melody becomes rhythm.

With their electric live performances sealing the notion that the two Fuck Buttons are attempting some kind of transcendence between the listener and the Universe itself, one could easily envisage one’s psyches being shaken by the very rumbles of the earth’s motions.

Tribal beats and subtle beautiful melodies weave amongst contorting Technicolor drone-scapes while preaching distorted-vocals scream for dear hope herself…

Fuck Buttons straddle you between the wall of sound that lies between the beginning of destruction and the end of birth. This grand noise will fondle you into a state of immersed euphoria. From ATP website.
