Is that a shark tattoo, you may wonder looking at this photo. No it’s Fake Fun from St Petersburg, Russia. In September they released their first album, a self-titled 7-track record that is only available digitally as far as I know. But who cares, since this is the best Russian punk since Total Rejects. Listen to the closing track “Reeperbahn”, complete with crazy guitar effects and saxophone. Who else would try something like that? Set that one up next to the classic ’77 punk of “Love Song” and you have a band that is in complete control of its limited means.
