Review: FGFC820 Plays Alien Nation, @ The Fuze Box. 10.7.11

FGFC820-Martydom

Industrial monsters FGFC820 come north, to make Albany go nuclear. Let’s see what happens. FGFC820 is a duo out of Queens, New York, that is composed of NYC DJ’s Rexx Arkana (vocals, programming) and Dråcos (live synth, vocals, programming).  FGFC820 live delivers harsh and uncompromising electro.  

The band breaks out with an “Call to Glory,” a text-book example of the band’s electro brutality. The show was well attended and FGFC820 immediately has the club on its feet and dancing.  Without missing a step, FGFC820 goes into "Democracy," another blistering electro track. FGFC820 is tight and harsh, and kept the packed floor moving. The band thanked the crowd for representing Albany, and launched into some new songs off their new album "Homeland Security."  Fists went in the air and the crowd sang along.  For the next track, singer Rexx Arkana announces, we'll play a hit: the band launched into the more accessible “Society.” Less harsh, but the crowd did not seem to mind.  Calling all the "old school" people up, FGFC820 then did a wicked cover of Pop will Eat Itself's "Ich Bin Und Auslander,” and slayed the song. The cover was a high-point for the night.  Rexx Arkana, while beating himself in the chest, launched into "The Heart of America." --the song was an "older song" with screamed vocals interweaving with each other and at touch of Skinny Puppy.  The band kept the floor packed and people dancing. An energetic set, harsh and uncompromising.

Arkana says, "you're all the cool kids I wanted to hang out with, I love all of you." Then the band launched into “Killing Fields” with chanted, syncopated vocals. The band announces two more songs. Another highlight of the show: “God Bless America.” FGFC820 brought a guest vocalist on the stage, totally decimating the crowd. For the last song --a new song-- FGFC820 launched into “Doctrine.” The song pitched a poppy synth-line with a driving EBM beat. When the song broke into the verse, it devolved into frenetic screaming.

The band did a song as an encore (a love song): "Martyrdom.” FGFC820 brought Albany, NY an extreme and brutal set that had the club on its feet throughout.  The set was hard-hitting, political and intense.
