Tongues of Fire

Most bands fit cleanly within a genre but Tongues of Fire don't. At their heart they are a punk band, their shows are unhinged, the music is straightforward and hard hitting, there is no trace of pomp or excessiveness but they are accessible and there is a well crafted feel to their songs. The production is clean and the instrumentals deceptively complex. They have many contemporaries and influences like METZ, Gang of Four, Nirvana and Jesus Lizard but avoid mimicry and pride themselves in creating an original sound.
