Vancouver’s Loose Fang are a twenty-first century rock ‘n’ roll band that collages the influences patched on their sleeves. Transatlantic sounds of the sixties wrestle with the early days of punk, kaleidoscoped with the steadiness and sonic force of the early nineties’ sounds its members grew up listening to and playing. The band is loud and they like it that way, and they’re not coy about the pop sensibilities they won’t shake.
Loose Fang’s personal and musical backgrounds are as diverse as the land they call home — a modern Canadian band.
Communist Czechoslovak refugee turned citizen Adam Sabla (The New Values) learned about rebellion and bootlegged rock ‘n’ roll from his parents at an early age.
Jay Slye (Catlow) is known as much locally for being pulled by his dogs on his skateboard as he is for being the secret weapon on guitar.
Catherine Hiltz (Bad Pop, Tegan and Sara's Hey, I'm Just like You) is solid, steady — a virtuoso bass player whose seismic activity rumbles from her native prairies to the west coast.
Ian Browne (The Pierce Kingans, Matthew Good Band) is the quiet giant that comes to life pounding on the drums as if he were exorcising demons.
Loose Fang recorded their debut "Live Wires, Black Sheep" with producer Howard Redekopp (The New Pornographers, You Say Party) for his new How Weird Sounds imprint in a tight, loud, and raw burst. The band put down eleven songs live with a minimum of overdubs.
