Knife And Fork...

Man, talk about a band with a pedigree. Knife And Fork include the Hall sisters formerly of San Francisco's fabulous Ovarian Trolley. In addition to the sisters we have the talented Eric Drew Feldman playing most of the instruments. Feldman has played with Captain Beefheart, Pere Ubu, Snakefinger, The Residents, Pixies, Frank Black, PJ Harvey as well as producing for Sparklehourse and Polyphonic Spree.

Knife And Fork have been playing here and there, most recently at San Francisco's Noisepop music festival. The record Miserycord was released in October of last year and is available for purchase. This is very dramatic music. Full of pounding ryhthms, swirling melodies and an everything but the kitchen sink mentality as far as the density of the music goes. Through it all Laurie Hall's voice rides the songs, sometimes in complete control of the proceedings and at other times careening off like a surfer hurtling down the face of a wave.
