Delivering a raging fusion of the most extreme forms of rock & roll, the Fireballs of Freedom evoke both the roots of punk rock and the furious and disturbing features of hardcore.

Whoa. Like an outsider VH logo in whiteout on your stoner cousin's grimy jean vest. Not enough psychedelic punk, or should we say.. Atomic Punk anymore. The Fireballs of Freedom, for the uninitiated are a full-tilt psych outfit, originally from the Fargo-Moorehead scene that turned Hammerhead and godheadSilo loose. They relocated, un-strategically, for about 6 years to Missoula where they played lots of seriously, excellently intense and sweaty, fist-pumpingly epic, insane shows, toured the northwest regularly and then moved on to Portland, to attack the west coast from closer proximity.

Aside from having an album called Total Fucking Blowout and being the band that many of us cut our underground punk rock show teeth on, the Fireballs of Freedom have just got a presence and personality that's fully impossible to deny. "FoF" started in North Dakota as a band called Honky Sausage, moved to Montana in 1992 or 1993 after Ear Candy Music's John Fleming told them these were fertile pastures for the kind of high plains, country-boogie-punk-whatever-exactly-you-wanna-call-it rock and roll they were blasting out. And it turned out that Missoula and the Fireballs was a match similar in potency to coffee and cigarettes, chocolate and peanut butter, Peaches/Herb, etc. etc. etc. Missoula loved, and I'd hazard loves the Fireballs like few other things.

It's exciting to me that the Fireballs haven't stopped. They still are a completely blistering band, and regardless of your thoughts on the kind of music they lay down, you owe it to yourself to enjoy the unhinged power and love for music they bring. ~ Josh Vanek, Wantage USA
