About Fake Weed:
Three bearded lads who make noisy math punk music or whatever you feel fit to call it. Always noisy. Started in 2013 as a two piece, then lucked out with the tragic passing of Mammals (of which Woolly was also a member), because we harvested a fully operational drummer (Mike Fuksman) from the bones to create the magical 3 piece Fake Weed you hear and get confused by today. Genius drummer Michael Winkler then became genius bass player Michael Winkler, and we all lived happily ever after until genius Michael Winkler decided to move back home. It was great fun. Our album will be recorded in the next few weeks, and available to download from bandcamp for the usual 'name your price. Mike played in Incisors, and Mammals, and a bunch of other bands. Winkler has done loads of stuff, played most recently in Yantiao, is a fine producer and composes some excellent electronic/ noise music (armtrick, guijian). Woolly played in mammals, and played drums in a band called tda for many years in the UK.
Songs: 1) Napoleon 2) You won on points, but we won on skill 3) Always the child bridesmaid, never the child bride 4) God help those who help themselves
