Biography

NEWS 24/04/07: The Fault set to support Dukes of Windsor on their WA tour in May

The Fault
Take a brash dash of “screech and scrall” “stomping guitar”, a splice of volatile keyboard hooks varying from “cartoon Transylvanian organs” to “cocktail lounge” keys, “brilliantly timed and breakneck speed drumming”, a ballsy bottom end and flamboyant male and female vocals, and there you have a taste of The Fault.
