The Famines- Syllables 7”. The Famines are a cross between the Electric Eels, The Stooges, Red Kross and a case of Red Bull laced with speed. If you haven't seen a Famines show, your life is no where near complete. They are the best live band in Canada... period. If you go home without at least a bruise, you were likely passed out on the toilet. This is their third single and definitely one of their best! Import from Canada.
