Tragedy's Uncle

I tend to dote on the "Nightmares" LP by ...From Ashes Rise, so I've kind of neglected their earlier work. You know what? These guys were pretty awesome from the start! Take this first 7" for example, "Fragments Of A Fallen Sky." It may not be as Swedish or "Memphis" sounding as their 12"s, but the brooding atmosphere and crushing guitar thunder foretold of a band whose name would be used to describe hundreds of imitators in coming years. Hear how it all began...

"FOAFS" by FAR

Tragedy played near my home town last night but i didn't get there, my car decided to not co-operate and some problem with the breaks appeared on.bad luck.. My bro offered his vehicle but i was out of the mood and pissed off(and its a distance of 200+ km to travel..) bad luck,bad luck...
thanks for this little gem, cheers :)

you should look into (and post) the NO PARADE recordings. NP were a side project of FAR guys, and in my opinion much better.

The last time Tragedy played here, I wussed out too. I've seen both FAR and Tragedy before, and it's definitely worth motivating yourself for!

Chris- anytime dude.

Bry- I'll definitely take your advice on that, thanks!
