About this item

Hello Thor Records presents the debut single from their favourite band, Fists. The band have a tantalising and beguiling set of influences. From mid-50s skiffle and rockabilly, through lo-fi pioneers like Daniel Johnston and Simon Joyner, to proto-punks the Monks. Throw in the likes of Link Wray, Woodie Guthrie, Les Savy Fav, The Breeders, Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers, The Fall and Scott Walker and you might be nearing a place where Fists are coming from. It is DIY, lo-fi; both wildly experimental and toe-tappingly pop.
Steve Lamacq is a fan, here's what he said about this single "I love this record...utterly defiant and like it doesn't have a care in the world."
