After Djing twice and breaking his shoulder once during an alfresco noise set, John E Smoke is bringing the Flesh Eating Foundation posse to Infest properly this year, and fear not, guide dog JJ will be right there with them!
After two decades of not quite fitting in anywhere, Flesh Eating Foundation continue to evolve / deconstruct their electro punk sound. Their new album ‘We Are Fucked’, released digitally and on tasty vinyl, has impressed both critics and fans alike with its raucous and abrasive vibe laced with angry yet ridiculously catchy hooks. The live show is very likely to contain circuit bent and DIY instruments, hefty amounts of bass and noise, a dash of chaos and bad dancing, but hopefully no broken bones.
Flesh Eating Foundation are uncomfortable. The electro crowd aren’t sure how to dance to their music and the headbangers don’t think they are metal enough. The punks quite like them though. It has been said that they make too many weird noises and they look a bit strange. They really don’t care, they have spewed up seven-ish official releases over the last ten years or so. You’ll also find them on various compilations and tribute albums for Coil and Ministry, amongst others.
Co-founder John E Smoke is known as one of the few deaf/blind musicians working on the scene and can often be seen with his adorable, noise-loving guide dog JJ.
On the side they have remixed and collaborated with just about everyone who will have them and indulged themselves with their passion for experimental noise and horror. They have recently provided the score for the killer clown film ‘Crispy’s Curse’ while John E Smoke is also a film maker in his own right.
