Fish Karma returns with a new collection of scathing tunes entitled Lethal Fairy Tales. Targeting the world-at-large, this is their 9th road marker on a never-ending journey of social commentary. Backed by the Love Generation, the band has grown beyond their folkier roots and are pushing in a direction that recalls a mangled Bob Dylan fronting the Velvet Underground. It's clear that Fish Karma and the Love Generation are too skilled on their instruments to be pushed aside, they have a plan. Not fucked up enough to be twisted and not freaky enough to be outsider music, could this be an attempt to break into the mainstream? With heavier tracks like "American", "Swimming To The Homeland" and "Heavy Metal Jowls" or folkier political songs like "OckUPyd" and "Fema Camp," you'll be singing along: "I am a moron, I am American." Sing it loud and sing it proud!

Halloween In America by Fish Karma

Fish Karma

Halloween In America
Alternative Tentacles

Tuscon's twisted troubadour of twang returns with his second Alternative Tentacles record. If the Dead Milkmen met Bob Dylan and hallucinated in the desert outside of Tucson, Halloween in America would be the result! This new album proves that Fish Karma's rusted razor wit is just as deadly as ever. He's been called everything from Neil Young's bastard brother to the most horrible thing you've ever seen in your life. His career in creative antagonism began at the University of Arizona where Fish worked with a student-run comedy troupe. The stage bug infected him and, discovering that he could neither sing nor play an instrument, he decided to begin a life in music. His concerts made him a cult figure. Byron Coley wrote in The Village Voice, "Fish is a great entertainer. Live, he strums along at whatever tempo he wants & rants & raves the funniest observations this side of George Carlin." Fish Karma's punk rock sensibilities led him to work with Al Perry & The Cattle, Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra, who said, "Fish's music is your basic Fugs-style electric grunge folk, and his lyrics feature some of the meanest put-downs of American consumer culture I've heard in years." Fish is well-known for his wry wit and humor, as well as an insatiable need to spit on all things conventional. He says "Part of my problem is that the first record I ever heard was 'My Ding-A-Ling' by Chuck Berry. I have been struggling to overcome that disability...

Theory Of Intelligent Design by Fish Karma

Fish Karma

Theory Of Intelligent Design
Alternative Tentacles

FISH KARMA is not a jam band--he's a person, representing the delicious dementia side of our label that gave you WESLEY WILLIS, BLOWFLY and the CRUCIFUCKS. Born, raised and infected in Tucson, AZ, FISH turned heads, blew minds and tickled funny bones with two previous albums on Mojo Nixon's Triple Nixon imprint, and more recently Lunch With The Devil. His songs feature his unique skewerings of the dark side of Americana as mutated into the sun-damaged retirees, townies and pleasure-seekers only Arizona could create. Music is more basement rock than acoustic this time, recorded once again with FISH's longtime pal, Al Perry (of CATTLE fame). Now relocated to Texas, FISH once again provides badly needed relief from our increasingly Branch Davidian-like government and all those obnoxious, large, golden crosses shackled around puppet celebrity necks at the Grammy Awards. Kind of outsider, kind of blind-sider, with a barb or two at supply-siders, FISH KARMA's in the tent to enlighten and mangle your mind. Artwork by Winston Smith.
