Album Notes
In the banal,bloated and completely corporate modern (rock) horse shit that is supposedly alternative or indie, one finds little hope for anything original and full of hate for the mainstream and its culture of doom and class warfare. Rising from the voluptuous mountains of Montana comes the touchers, carrying the ethics and ideals of the late seventies early eighties punk scene. FUGAZI, NATION OF ULYSSES, MINUTEMEN, FLipper--minor threat BLACK FLAG, DEAD KENNEDYS< the Stooges and X. Ramones, heartbreakers, Daniel Johnston,tom waits and the butthole surfers, Frank Black, etc so we have a twang and a taste of johnny cash and Willie Nelson but the Fury of THE Jesus Lizard or the melvins. So keep being spoon fed the corporate whore's excrement and take a flying fuck at the moon

Las Vegas Weekly

Totally Addicting
The Touchers
The Underwater Fascist
Quite possibly one of the weirdest bands ever heard, The Touchers play manic and metal-tinged alt-country that's fun, unique and totally addicting. If you're a fan of strange music, this disc is a must.


rip-roaring abrasive rock music
The guys in Touchers represent the seedy underside of ski resort towns like Bozeman, Montana. While yuppy visitors are slipping down the slopes in their overpriced retard gear, these guys tuck themselves away in the background and play absolutely rip-roaring abrasive rock music (most likely to vent their frustrations about the yuppy visitors who are slipping down the slopes in their overpriced retard gear). The Underwater Fascist works. This self-recorded album succeeds because of the inherent sincerity of the delivery. Instead of trying to sound like the latest hipster band or drown their instruments and vocals in effects, these guys play like hell and just let the machine capture their sincere harsh energy. Fast, loose, and slightly trashy...these tracks are refreshingly effective. Top picks: "Aphrodite Has Gone Mad," "Country Killer," "77," "Fire When Ready." (We absolutely love the ad featuring sea monkeys who have been transformed into underwater fascists.) (Rating: 5)


an unbelievable and amazing album that should not be overlooked by anyone.
The Touchers, also known as Bipolar Ben and The Touchers, call Montana home and yes, Ben Spangler (also known as Ben Brisini in some text), is a self-proclaimed sufferer of bipolar disorder. It is my belief that this medical condition may be an aide to his mulit-sided and schizophrenic music. The Underwater Fascist rocks like a garage punk/alt country/rock ‘n’ roll/hardcore buffet of music. Throughout the record Spangler’s vocals go from his regular scratchy-throat to blistering screaming without warning and the distortion-laced music itself is hard to pin down and define as a whole. Trying to classify a band such as The Touchers only demeans what they are all about. Catchy hooks and dirt-throat singing, mixed with blistering screaming, along with insightful lyrics make up the masterpiece that is The Underwater Fascist, –Jeremy C. Wilkins
