Album Notes
Gorch Fock are a 7 piece heavy rock outfit from Austin, TX that incorporate 2 drummers, two guitarists, a bass player, a electronics/effects/baritone guitar/vocalist and a trombonist/vocalist. Deriving their name from a 19th century German naval training vessal, Gorch Fock's polyrhythmic and undulating songs drive with gale force. The multiple drums, electronics and four guitar players combine to create a thick, layered, and textural sound that shifts dynamically like tides. Employing delay on both his trombone and vocals, Joey Ficklin, adds a dirge like quality to the music that is reminiscent of foghorns in the bay and sea shanties in the bar. For fans of experimental, heavy, psychadelic rock-

"Maniacal and explosive and wickedly confident"
-Monika Kendrick The Chicago Reader

GORCH FOCK, "Shirts vs. Skins": "Guttural guitar stampedes through a double-drum ditch while a Boeing trombone flies overhead"
-Christopher Gray The Austin Chronicle

"... from Scratch Acid to the Butthole Surfers to Ed Hall and the Cherubs...Aural assault fanatics can now add Gorch Fock to that storied, grimy list"
-Joe Gross The Austin American Statesman

"And Gorch Fock are an intense band. Even their quieter moments-- mostly in the spaces before the songs really get going -- are fraught with uncomfortable rhythms and vaguely disquieting samples: a woman reading what sounds like a religious tract, a snippet of a Vietnam-era antiwar ditty. Album closer "Suicide and/or Packed with Satan" features an equilibrium-disturbing whine that's absolute murder on a hungover morning."

"The band plays, abrasive, non-commercial music that recalls the glory days of SST records in its combination of sludgy guitar riffage and avante-weird attitude...the overall effect is oddly menacing."
- Max Price Greenville, SC Metro Beat
