Simply put, Flesh Panthers elevate fuzz into an art form. And going back to that 1972 Nuggets compilation, its liner notes include one of the first uses of the term, "punk rock." It is in this fine tradition that Flesh Panthers are garage punk rockers of the first order. (And unlike those indie flavors of the month, Flesh Panthers don't bite the hand that feeds.)
-B.C. Chicago / Indie Music Live


The dangerous sound of Chicago's Flesh Panthers lunges like a rattlesnake with the street-tough attitude of raw, wild rock 'n' roll. The revved up mayhem of 'Cassette EP' rolls off the tape reels with fury, four tracks chronicling excess in the areas of booze, dope and general recklessness.Tight lead guitar riffs over a solid foundation of fuzzed-out bass and solid drumming. Tangled in this melee is the dark voice of a buzz-saw rhythm guitar and angsty lyrics.

Their new untitled cassette EP was recorded live, without redos, leaving all the mistake in. The unpolished rawness of recording live gives them a real authentic sound a lot of “punk” bands are lacking nowadays.Their new EP pretty much encompasses everything rad about punk rock, including lyrical references to wearing leather and indulging in drugs, guitar rhythms steeped in reverb and distortion, and heavy uptempo drumming.
