The Bastards of Fate

The Bastards of Fate are the corpus callosum connecting the rational lobe of pop to the irrational lobe of the avant-garde. They are the sturdy tether lashing rock’s analog past to its digital future. They ring the tocsin bell of triumph while blowing the slughorn of agony. The Bastards of Fate are nothing less than the auditory manifestation of the dark duality of the human spirit. Will you heed their call? WILL YOU?

LIMITED EDITION PACKAGE: The Bastards of Fate, "Who's a Fuzzy Buddy?"

This is the limited edition deluxe preorder of The Bastards of Fate, "Who's a Fuzzy Buddy?"  The package includes an amazing handmade LP or CD coozie made from faux fur, a tour poster, and a special zine.  The band has made each coozie by hand to make ensure that your copy is always cozy and stylish. The zine - "The New Orgonian: The Bastards of Fate Must Be Stopped", produced by Ben R. Williams, is madcap conspiracy and perverse delight.

The year was 2006. Doug Cheatwood—grocer by day, innkeep by night, musician perpetual—assembled his dream team. Benjamin Pugh as rhythm guitarist extraordinaire. Camellia Delk on synthesizer and heart strings. Jason Wellz as sinister bass-smith. Tying the package together: the wild rhythms of Doug Shelor’s pin-point percussion. A quintet of such skill seemed unstoppable, and yet Fate conspired against the Bastards from their inception. Their shows would end in mechanical catastrophe. Their wild antics would get them banned from popular venues. Their practice space burned to cinders, destroying their equipment.

And yet tragedy did not stop or slow The Bastards; if anything, it informed their unique musical sensibility. And now, at the end of their Road of Trials, we find their debut album. Who’s a Fuzzy Buddy? represents The Bastards of Fate at the top of their game, twelve tracks of catchy melodies, shrieking vocals, sonic weirdness. One cannot describe their sound accurately as all comparison fails; they have created a New Sound that is not of this generation of music, nor perhaps even of this plane of existence. You can listen to the album now, or you can listen to its influence in the future.
