FAHRENHEIT 451 "the thought of it"

Fahrenheit 451 were another NY band that had that smooth groove. I don't know if it can all be traced back to Beyond or really where this sound started. There's just something way more diverse about a lot of these bands from that area and time frame. Bands didn't seem like they were just trying to write the heaviest breakdown, the cliche sing alongs, or the standard fast part. These NY bands just did their own thing.

F 451 are another one of these gems. There's plenty of blanks that I need filled in on this band and it seems like the people reading this blog do an amazing job of educating me and everyone else who reads it. So other than a few of these guys doing some stints with District 9 & maybe Vision I'm not really sure what else these guys had been up to.

I started searching the web for stuff about F 451 and it's kind of crazy I decided to feature them. Why? Well it looks like they are playing a show in a matter of weeks! Apparently they are releasing a discography CD along with a DVD and are playing a one time show. You can find more about that on their myspace page.

Here I am featuring 2 tracks from their CDep "The Thought Of It" which was released by Striving For Togetherness. Apparently every song they ever recorded will be on the discograpy but you can still pick up "The Thought Of It" from Very Distro. In fact, if you order from Very Distro and put the word "COREGASM" in your comments section upon checkout, you will receive 10% off of your whole order! Pretty sweet.

Sara the vocalist from Terrorcake (a band who I have always been searching for more stuff from) somehow found the blog and posted some quick info. Looks like she's working on compiling all of their stuff and will be putting it online. She also posted a link to a website that still has their one 7" along with the Albany compilation that I had featured a little while back. Pretty cool. I just ordered my Terrorcake 7", can't wait to hear it. I've only been looking for this for like 10+ years.

I was never a huge Fahrenheit 451 fan for some reason, but I did finally buy this EP sometime within the last 5 years. I saw them live once or twice in their day and always thought it was so-so, but I seem to enjoy it a little more now than I did when the band was active. Go figure!?

On Terrorcake. Wow. It's so cool to hear someone rave about Terrorcake when you've only heard the one song on the This Town compilation. I grew up in Albany and was a fan way back. I actually just moved my copy of the 7" to iTunes, but now think may∫e I should order a second copy of the vinyl myself, since mine is rather worn out with pops and scratches. Enjoy when you get it. It's awesome.
