Fawn Spots

Fawn Spots are a bunch of punks, just about to release their debut LP, From Safer Place. They're raw, heavy and slightly off-kilter - like an unhinged Hüsker Dü.

There's deep thought behind Fawn Spots' raging song writing and their debut album is relentless. They're a fantastic addition to 2015 and are a shot of something pure and nasty into a diluting punk scene.

Raw Meat: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores we should look up, what’s the scene like where you’re from?
Fawn Spots: It's difficult to talk about our local scene - the last few years have seen some of our favourite venues shut down. Bar Lane (a Victorian basement space) and The Woolpack were both great and cultivated some exciting stuff here. The Fulford Arms has been recently done out and we've loved playing there.At the risk of sounding sycophantic we run a label called Bad Paintings. A bunch of our friends have labels here too - Sea Records, Swirly, Snowflake to name a few.Definitely check out The Inkwell - best record shop in York with a proprietor who can recommend listening like nobody’s business.

Name one track or band that you love from the past.
Joy Division.

Name one track or band that you’re loving right now.
Doctrines from Manchester.

Name one track or band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
Threads - they're from London and sound like Unwound. I heard a few demos this morning and am sold.

What are you up to now?
Right now? I'm laid in bed writing this before driving to Bristol to play another show with Naomi Punk - we're on tour with them at the moment.

What can we expect from you next?

STALKER RESOURCES:

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Paranoid, jaded, angry and loud. Okay Champ's debut single embodies everything we hold dear to our cold, black hearts.

After seeing Guttfull live, we became completely besotted. So we thought it was about time we asked them the only questions that really matter.

When the same band are recommended to you three times in a week it's pretty clear that you're not the only one that has fallen under Thyla's spell.
