    The Family Curse

    Alternative Rock

    Formed in 2004 in San Francisco, The Family Curse's live musical exorcisms commonly earn mashed up comparisons to the Butthole Surfers, Ministry, Pain Teens, Big Black, Godflesh and Jesus Lizard. 

    Their debut album, Spice Rack, was released in April of 2008 on Fainting Room Collective:

    "Like an unholy cross between Captain Beefheart and the Pain Teens, trapped in a cellar with Mudhoney bashing down the door ...The Family Curse grind the face of poor old rock 'n' roll into the floor and stomp over its body, rocking up their avant-noise workouts all the way. Electro-percussion clicks and chatters, an incongruous intrusion of shiny new technology into the band's dirty, dirty sound...lovely, filthy, weirdness..."
    - UK Nemesis to Go

    Reviews from their second album, White Medicine, released November 3rd, 2009: 

    "Seattle’s The Family Curse have a good thing going…if ultraviolent art rock is what you’re seeking, look no further" - stonerrock.com

    "…the drug-addled love child of Big Black and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.…The Family Curse are not afraid to take a different approach, releasing a product of experimentation, and the outcome is effective, proving that not everything needs to be defined to be considered worthy." Exclaim! 

    Metro Spirit top 10 of 2009
    “White Medicine might even send Napalm Death-era Justin Broadrick running screaming from the room to find solace in a Swans EP. It’s what karaoke would be like if it were co-emceed by Satan and Doris Day." Metro Spirit

    “…an album that seeks to destroy all conventional notions of pop, noise and industrial music. What emanates from the speakers is too glitchy to be melodic, too structured to be noise and just too damn weird to be ignored. If Six Organs of Admittance cross-pollinated with Jesus Lizard and asked Bjork to provide vocals, you might come close to imagining the sound of White Medicine.” Performer Magazine

    “Roll Karen O and Get Hustle into a nice little spliff and you have the right idea, but that’s only the beginning. Sprinkle in a liberal dose of Albini, along with some PRE, Jesus Lizard, Death Sentence: Panda, Blood Brothers, San Francisco’s Pigeon, AIDS Wolf and maybe even some Sneaker Pimps every so often…” Fensepost
