Each song on the album is its own individual tantrum, while no one outburst is repeated the overall sound is youthful, dance-worthy pandemonium.”
“Six tracks of oh so noisy goodness..”
“A trio of barely 18-year-olds playing music that sounds like instrumental versions of Fugazi at warp speed, Fiasco has become a fixture at some of the best shows in the same Brooklyn underground scene that helped spawn bands like TV on the Radio and Yeasayer.”
“Brooklyn teenage math-punk phenoms Fiasco released Native Canadians, a 20-odd minute blast of instrumental fury.”
Like a hard-headed lovechild between Lightning Bolt and The Gun Club, Fiasco’s garage-prog is all sixteenth-note clipping and squeaky punk riffage; juvie jamming for wild, bottle-breaking souls. ”
“The Ventures covering Rachmaninoff”
8 out of 10, Lost At Sea:
“With no lyrics, no love songs, and no choruses, Native Canadians is the type of album to play while driving around smashing the mailboxes of senior citizens or pissing your name in the snow of some neighbor’s front lawn, with cheap beer in hand, only to turn around and see your buddies drive off. At under twenty-two minutes, Native Canadians is as gloriously brief as adolescence and close to being just as furious and fun.”
Fiasco’s noisy gem Native Canadians is OUT NOW on Impose Records

Press Hearts Fiasco!
One of the most blistering albums you’re likely to hear all year…. Darkly fascinating instrumentals.”
| Who are Fiasco!
They’re not out of high school but they’ve already been through the press circus. They’ve never gone on a major tour but their Brooklyn shows at d.i.y. spaces still hit overflow capacity. You could blame it on the hype, but Fiasco never would’ve left their parent’s basement if these kids were just another garage band.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Jonathan Edelstein (guitar / vocals), Lucian Buscemi (bass / vocals) and Julian Bennett Holmes (drums) hit a universal nerve in the noise rock continuum; it’s a sonic sweet spot that’s apparently everything for everyone. Impose Records signed them “because we loved the hardcore influences of the early 90s they recall – and were born in.”
The trio formed in 2005 at the tender age of 14 and by 2007 were self releasing their own records. Fiasco also play regularly throughout the tri-state area with their d.i.y. brethren – 2008 alone has seen them share the stage with No Age, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, High Places, Pony Tail, Parts & Labor, Kimya Dawson, Aa, Yacht and label mates Team Robespierre, to name a few.
Having just finished recording in their basement (mastered by Josh Bonati of Aa), Fiasco will release their instrumental sophomore record, Native Canadians, in a special vinyl CD packaging. The spastic anthems that recall their heavy rock antecedents are fully present, but Canadians also showcases their technical prowess and instinctual sense of melody and arrangement. It’s an early collector’s classic for a band burning with possibility and currently blowing up.
