Album Notes
"The Fenwicks are not normal. They are a band with a message: enjoy one's life! The songs ask you to live with integrity, love with sincerity, and act to make your life better. The Fenwicks promote joy both in theory and in practice- they sing and perform with the joy they preach".
-G. Murray Thomas
The Independent
The Fenwicks 1st 7" Vinyl Single. Before there was a band. Before we were Ska. Way back when we were Acoustic Punks.
Member of No Tribe.
Words by Steven Schub. Music by Jimmie Corrieri. Produced by Stephen X. Popkin.

Member of No Tribe:
I've yet to find the Man who can rectify this Land.
I've yet to see a sign of a Great One up above.
I've yet to find salvation from a baby blown in two.
I've yet to find the girl who can take me home to sing...

It all has been distorted and the whole thing's been reported.
To the safety of civility we crawl off into bed.
Excess replaced the possible.
Objective disappeared.
Pop replaced the True, now I will replace you, to sing...

I ain't no member, no member of no tribe.
Just let me twist slowly in the wind.

The Messiah will soon be coming- to Las Vegas, place your bets.
We wait to see Elvis rise-up from the dead.
As I look between your thighs I see candy-coated lies.
Tell me, can you tell me, was it worth this song? And sing:

Member of No Tribe.
"Fiercely original. The Fenwicks are today's postmodern Mothers of
Invention. Pathfinding songwriters with visionary ideas, up there with
the best of the best... It's big, bold, and mind-blowing".

"The Fenwicks' show is a heady mixture of brilliant and extreme original music and impromptu community theater. They have created a striking blend of unpredictable rock that's something akin to Bob Dylan doing heavy metal accompanied by Monty Python. Expect anything and everything from The Fenwicks."

"Both live and on disc, these merry tunesters, churn out a quirky, angular mix of folk-rock, funk, ska and manic energy that's pulled along, kicking and screaming all the way, by Schub's satiric, hyperactive lead vocals. The combination really clicks for some high octane pop."

"The Fenwicks are iconoclasts who put the happiest of mediums to work for them. The songs sparkle with Jimmie Corrieri's jangly folk rock guitar. The combination is perfect. As the guiding light of The Fenwicks, Schub is a found object in a monumental work of calculation. He is at once raconteur, misunderstood literate and off-in-the-corner performance artist. Far-removed from today's power-chord posturing, Schub is the "Rage against the Machismo", and his shtick seems destined to become a new art form. The Fenwicks blast off and then intoxicate".
-Arvid Smith, FOLIO WEEKLY
