FUN is a three-piece noise-rock band from Helsinki, Finland since 2001.
"Fun". Three letters that say it all, really. Three letters, three guys, the bare essentials. The Holy Trinity of rock music; the condensed, boiled down essence of everything you love. From the biblical black of the Tennessee Three through the yawning cock rock of Cream and The Experience, through the crystalline amphetamine noise of Hüsker Dü through Big Black's clenched teeth to the supernova of Nirvana, this is what it boils down to: three.
So, in 2013, it would seem logical that Fun are releasing three 7” singles (their first in this iconic format!), starting with “1/3” in February. The second and third part will follow in six month intervals or so. They will be released through their very own label Cut Half Records in Finland, Rejuvenation Records in France and Tenzenmen in Australia.
For the uninitiated: Fun are a band from Helsinki, Finland. During their ten year existence, they've shared stages with The Jesus Lizard, Nomeansno, Polvo and Deerhoof.
Oh, and if you're not interested, please note that the third letter in the band's logo is underlined. The first two say “FU”.
