THE FUSES (DRESS FOR THE NEW BOMB E.P.)

I really like this band, I'm not sure but this may be their first record . They have a great retro 70's punk rock feel to them, with just enough quirkiness to make them interesting . I agree with the comparisons below , that's why I included the review with this post . With out a doubt, a great record . All their records are worth owning . They have a tune on their Eastern Cities record called Sex Crimes that really blows me away. Maybe I'll post that some time .The Fuses, are a punk four-piece from Baltimore, known for their aggressive, minimalist sound. Combining elements of new wave, no wave, art punk, and political lyrics, they are often compared to Wire, Mission of Burma, and Gang of Four. The band formed in May 1997 and released their debut full-length, I Wanna Burn, in 1998. After releasing several 7'"s, they followed up with Are Lies in April 2000. ~ Alex Zorn, All Music Guide
