Often sad, always funny, the band tries to spread some rage and some love around.
Jodie Faster plays short songs fast since 2016.
Formed in Lille, France, in late 2016, Jodie Faster is a fast hardcore, political punk quartet. Playing furious and frantic songs about modern life, oppression systems, life on the road and punk ethos, the band has released their first EP Complete Discography in 2017, then a split EP with Rouen’s Genital Jiggling 666 Cups of Black Coffee in 2018, before launching their debut album Blame Yourself on TNSrecords, alongside many other badass labels. They’ve toured Europe and UK several time, did videos, met some great people around, promote gigs in their hometown, played many great festivals (Manchester Punk Fest, Fluff fest, Xtreme Fest, Ieper Hardcore Fest to name a few), seen a lot of killing bands and personal idols, told some good jokes & some botched ones, crossed some borders easily and other less easily… Often sad, always funny, the band tries to spread some rage and some love around.
“Jodie Faster undoubtedly accomplished a lot with their debut full-length album, and with great assurance, I can easily state that Blame Yourself indicates more than a good year for the underground hardcore punk scene.” – Thoughts Words Action Webzine
“The hardcore punk four piece from Lille, France burn with intensity as they slam home sing along parts, blistering drums, parapet scaling guitars and a thundering bass foundation.” – Rock The Body Electric webzine
“Yet, for every bit of distortion leached from their sound, they operate at increasingly blinding speed. The effect is thrilling and ultimately feels like the Minutemen playing “four on the floor” hardcore punk.” – No Echo webzine
“Simply put, this is an album of seriously great, seriously short bangers. [..]Let it also be said that Jodie Faster are not only one of the fastest bands I’ve heard, but one of the tightest” – Tonko Jeff
“Fuck the Police™ the album. Really in your face, speedy, and chaotic in all the right ways and makes you feel like a badass rebel. These tunes will make you want to punch a cop.” – Someone on the internet
