General Fiasco – Buildings

NAME: General Fiasco
ALBUM: Buildings
YEAR: 22nd March
LABEL: Infectious Records
RATING: 2/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: Pop indie debut that bores.

LOCATION: Belfast, Ireland

LINE UP: Owen – Vocals and Bass, Enda – Guitars, Leaky – Drums

WHAT’S THE STORY?: After a string of big tour support slots, General Fiasco go for all with their debut album release.

SOUNDS LIKE: General Fiasco are like a musical version of General Studies; you learn something, but not a lot. Their sound/lyrics and general (forgive the pun) output acts like a check list of things an indie band should do to garner some moderate media attention. Chants? Check. Non-descript simple guitar lines? Check. A staunch, over-produced sound? Again, check. It’s all there in black and white, ready to be sold to lads with Stellas in their hands or girls in polka dot dresses. After a few listens of the album, you’ve delved into it as much as you can and log them in the back of your mind alongside other indie acts which possibly got there too late and fizzled out faster than budget cola on a hot day.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: Anyone they have ever had the luck to support.
