The Fenwicks Represent The VANS Warped Tour on NBC
Mark Faulkner, Florida Times Union
from their potent performance at the CMJ Music Marathon...
jubilant explosion. The Fenwicks thrive on spontaneity better than
The Fenwicks are today's postmodern Mothers of
Invention. Extreme funk driven by a killer groove. This is a genuine
all-star lineup. Pathfinding songwriters with visionary ideas, up there with
the best of the best... It's big, bold, and mind-blowing".
|"The Fenwicks are
iconoclasts who put the happiest of mediums to work for
them. An ever-changing landscape of ska, punk and folk. Ken Nasta and Ed
Richardson (drums and bass respectively) compromise the tightest rhythm
section on the planet, propelling the band like an over-fueled locomotive.
The songs sparkle with horn-laden hooks and Jimmie Corrieri's jangly folk
rock guitar. The combination is perfect. As the guiding light of The
Fenwicks, Schub is a found object in a monumental work of calculation. He is
at once raconteur, misunderstood literate and off-in-the-corner performance
artist. Far-removed from today's power-chord posturing, Schub is the "Rage
against the Machismo", and his shtick seems destined to become a new art
form. The Fenwicks blast off and then intoxicate".
Arvid Smith, FOLIO WEEKLY
"SIGN THEM, DAMMIT! The Fenwicks have got great songs and that's the bottom line. Their material is catchy, fun, full of humor and appealing to a wide audience. The Fenwicks are the real deal, an oasis in a desert of mediocre poseurs."
Neal Mirsky, Program Director WDIZ 100.3 FM Orlando FL
"The Fenwicks' show is a heady mixture of brilliant and extreme original music and impromptu community theater. They have created a striking blend of unpredictable rock that's something akin to Bob Dylan doing heavy metal accompanied by Monty Python. This package pounds with all the subtlety of a train crash, yet moves with the grace of synchronized swimmers in intricate cooperation. Expect anything and everything from the Fenwicks."
October Micha, PLAYERS MAGAZINE
"Both live and on disc, this workaholic bunch of merry tunesters, churn out a quirky, angular mix of folk-rock, funk, ska and manic energy that's pulled along, kicking and screaming all the way, by Schub's satiric, hyperactive lead vocals. The combination really clicks for some high octane pop."
Kevin Roe, SOUND VIEWS
"Man, these guys are fun! They mix folk ballads, manic ska, and steel drums with punk energy and passion. The result compels you to jump around your bedroom making stupid faces."
MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL
"Live, the band is like a mummenschantz of choreography - a 22nd century three ring circus of the mind. The Fenwicks defy all expectation."
Leslie Marini, FLORIDA EXPOSURE
"Aggressively confident and wonderfully eccentric...pathfinding inventiveness... the overall sound is percussion driven which effectively melds The Fenwicks' influences into a cohesive and forceful orchestration. The effect is stunning. This is the band that could bridge the gap between the fringe progressive movement and the mainstream charts. I've extolled The Fenwicks' virtues in print so many times, I'll have to invent new laudatory adjectives to describe them."
Rick Grant, FIRST COAST ENTERTAINER
