ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"More Songs About Humping and Booze"

You thought we were dead? You thought we'd broken up? You've never heard of us? Shit.

It'll take a lot more than a city full of Mormons and apathy to kill the mighty Thunderfist.

We persevere and thrive in the most adverse musical and environmental conditions known to man.

We are the beloved alcoholic cockroaches that Salt Lake City can't put down without an elephant gun loaded with Valiums and Makers Mark whiskey.

We're here on a rock and roll mission, and we're not letting up until we've played every dive bar in North America.

We enlisted the aid of Jeff Dahl (former Angry Samoan, and punk rock legend) to record the third installment of volume and energy that has become Thunderfist.

We wanted to do it like we do it live, and Jeff captured it with no compromise.

Right on.

Now the specifics; Thunderfist started in late 1997, with four members and began playing shows around the Salt Lake City area.

In 1998 we began (gasp) leaving town and playing shows wherever we could get them in open defiance of all the lazy motherfuckers who live in our little gem of a city.

We have put out two of our own albums under the El Chango Grande ('the big monkey') label, ('Barefoot and Pregnant' 1998, and 'Trash Culture' 1999) and have to date sold about 1300 copies of our first two albums through shows, word of mouth, and our local record store outlets that buy on consignment.

During this process we found a sick genius that knew how to screen print, and began doing shitloads of merchandise.

We will work any bands dick into the dirt, and aren't afraid to put our ass on the line to get things done.

We've played with acts such as the Bell Rays, Agent Orange, the ADZ, Texas Terri & the Stiff Ones, Murder City Devils, and Sloppy Seconds (and we're name-dropping assholes to boot.) I can't think of any more self-emphasizing bullshit, so let's get on with the show.

Does your local pub allow bestiality, fire eating, and self inflicted gun shot wounds? Then that's where we'll be.

Hold on to your girlfriend, your booze, and your mom, we look forward to passing out in a gutter near you..

My God.
I thought that everyone has forgotten what rock n' roll is all about. It's the loud, raw sounds that penetrate deep in your skull--the driving drums and bass and the flashy guitar solos. The vocalist seems like he's on edge, and ready to kill everything in his path. The energy of this CD is awsome. I'd recommend it to anyone who has an ear for the early sounds of the 70's that include bands like the Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Dwarves and Iggy Pop.

Jimmy Scott

Is Thunderfist Turning Over a New Leaf?!!
Show Me Something is an interesting departure for SLC locals Thunderfist. Rather than holding on to the speed and quirkiness of their last album, they've moved on to darker and more introspective pastures. The sense of humor involved in 'Trash Culture' seems to have been sidelined as singer Jeremy Cardenas delves into uncharted personal territory with unabashed sincerity and conviction. The musicianship of Thunderfist has improved immensely with the band actually adding leads and structure to their once chaotic repertoire. Salt Lake's reportedly hardest working band has a winner with this one, and we'll see what the future holds for this promising young band. -Jimmy Scott
