    Mind Control
    (Rise Above)
    Within Mind Control's it’s blood soaked grooves you will hear shocking tales of bizarre desert ceremonies, religious brainwashing and drug inspired mass slaughter!
    Imagine the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges, whilst sitting on murder charges and you may get a glimpse into their fuzzed up world of exploding tube amps and cymbal smashing mayhem. However, this enticing act of musical manipulation is merely the icing upon a very sick cake. 
    Mind Control is a concept album with a theme that makes the acts and intentions of the likes of Charles Manson and Jim Jones seem like petty crimes. What makes Mind Control scarier than most albums is that it doesn’t seem as sinister on the surface as it really is deep down, within the core of its black acid-drenched world of pain and torture.
    RELEASED - 29th April 2013 
    Recorded in a beautiful and isolated house in the Yorkshire Dales, Fain is the sound of a band at the peak of their creative powers.  It’s an honest and natural album that allows its stories, melodies, themes and structures to breathe. The album draws on more traditional English and Scottish folk melodies than anything they’ve done before, but not straying from the drop-out fuzz-rock route they’ve made their own. The influences are vast – British rock bands like GroundhogsDarkMighty Baby and Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac are evident in the swirling and distorted guitars throughoutFain, along with the 60s revival folk of Fairport ConventionNic Jones, and Trees.  Additionally they have looked towards Scandinavian’s rich psychedelic tradition both new and old – you can hear the likes of Mecki Mark MenMikael Ramel and contemporaries Dungen.  You can even hear the band’s teenage forays into Hip-Hop in the drums of ‘Thief’ and ‘Athol’.
