Friend or Foe is a weird band. The members of the band hide their real identities, when they are not the demons they are on Friend or Foe, they go like common guys sold to establishment. Aha. We could wonder for ages which identity is actually the real REAL one. They are hiding because they don’t want to loose the good things they get from being daylight prostitutes, they think Friend or Foe can scare their clients. And they might be right, because Friend or Foe is a bit scary, disturbing at least. They like to wear weird dresses on stage, they yell a lot of things to the audience, and not everybody understands what they say, and they are most of the time pretty wasted on the stage.

Something is brewing down south folks… I’m not sure what it is but there’s definitely some quality coming out of Shanghai that we don’t get to see in Beijing. Don’t get me wrong, we have “some” quality up here but when you look at the quantity, the ratio is pretty dismal. Shanghai is not blessed with as many live music venues and it’s definitely harder to get noticed there so maybe that creates a sort of natural selection that we could use up here. One of the latest examples of this trend comes in under the name: “Friend or Foe”. My interests in this record was mostly from the conceptual and graphical perspective. I loved the artwork… then I heard the damn thing. How does it stack up?
