ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FYDOLLA HO - UNHINGED

The Lunatics really have taken over the Asylum.......

Fydolla Ho is a twisting, twisted explosion of sound, taking equal parts Emo & Metal, creating an incendiary live experience.

FDH are fronted by cult film & T.V. actress Shawnee Smith, Seemingly lost in a world of her own, oblivious to her surroundings while the audience is oblivious to anything else. She demands your attention, being sexy and downright scary in equal measures.

It takes a special group of musicians to rein in such an in your face figurehead. From an initial studio line-up that featured members of Suicidal Tendencies, Skindred & Machinehead, Shawnee has recruited one of the most accomplished, intense & dynamic bands on the scene today. Original in an increasingly generic scene, this is the perfect soundtrack to Shawnee's downward spiral into dementia.

FYDOLLA HO - An aural train wreck of a band.

Agressive notes painted on an angry woman
I simply love the vocals on this CD. Shawnee Smith's voice is almost eerie in how it's both beautiful and full of distain. The lyrics have pretty much the same feel. As for the music itself, it is agressive and energetic, sometimes melodic, and quite often dark. Favorite songs: "Maja Thurup" and "Untied".

Bryant Dillard

Great CD with perfect sounds and beats
I thought that the cd was great. I wish that there had been more songs on the disc, but that's alright. I can deal with what's there. As for the individual tracks, while a lot of them do sound somewhat the same, they all have different purposes and meanings as to what's being said. The cover art, and the rest of it to, is quite interesting. Definitely a cd for people who are interested in something out of the ordinary and something actually good to listen to for once.

Brad B.

Great Punk/Hard Rock sound with awesome vocals
Great sound; the combination of brutal music and beautiful vocals is really interesting. Shawnee's voice ranges from a soft lullaby to a roar. Good instrument work too, nice metal/punk hybrid. BUY IT!

They could have been contenders
FYDOLLA HO - Untied

Some of you may remember this band as support on the Almightys illfated comeback tour. But probably not. I only popped this in the CD for purely venal purposes. After all, the vocalist is the delectable Shawnee Smith, one of my primary reasons for having the Paramaount Comedy channel. For six years she was lead singer/songwriter of the band Miriam Fay, and when they fell apart, the roots of Fydolla Ho were lain.

Shawnee founded the band with Robert Trujillo, formelrly of Suicidal Tendencies and now Metallica, Roy Mayorga, who has played drums with Soulfly, Shelter and Dave Navarro, Rick Battson also formerly of Suicidal Tendencies and a member of Miriam Fay, alongside Shawnee, and Benji, vocalist with Dub War and Skindred.

Naturally, enough that lineup didn't last, but Shawnee forged ahead with her vision. Influenced by Bjork, PJ Harvey, Beth Orton and Suzanne Vega, amongst others, but wanting to rock hard.

Playing the L.A.club circuit, and crystalised around a rhytm section of Carl Marrelli and Jahny Sprague, with James Mills taking on lead guitar duty, they have ended up with a punk / metal hybrid which, unfortunately, doesn't really break any rules or do anything different.

However, what they do, the do very well. "Untied" their 7 track mini LP offers up some excellent tracks, with quality songs and performances. Shawnee doesn't really sing in the classical idiom, rather utilises her voice as another instrument either playing with or fighting against the music, depending on circumstances.

Lyrically, it's surprisingly adolescent for a grown up, but they are very personal, and if that is how Shawnee felt at the time, so mote it be. As far as I can tell, the band is no more, as Shawnee later hooked up with former Billy Idol guitarist, Steve Stevens, to work on a new direction. A shame for this lot could have made it
