"Rave Magazine EP Review"

"Semi-spooky, demi-poppy fully-sick punk rock from Perth. Perth four piece The Fault have been making Perth audiences dance since 2005, supporting acts such as The Mess Hall and Electric Six and playing the Big Day Out. Their twitchy debut EP Prologue/Epilogue is likely to make people dance the world over"

- Rave Magazine Brisbane December 06

"XPress Editorial December 06"

“Rockin’ and rollin’ with a twist of acid, The Fault take what was great about 60s garage rock, and drag it kicking and screaming into 2007- hitting every decade along the way” - Xpress Magazine, Perth

"DB Magazine Adelaide EP Review"

“Bursting out of Perth like a hyperactive kitten chasing shiny objects across the Nullabor, The Fault’s debut CD doesn’t lack any energy…On the evidence of Prologue/Epilogue it’s pretty obvious why they’re considered one of Perth’s hottest live acts.” - DB Magazine December 06

"Drum Magazine Gig Review"

"The Memoirs of Dr Mafesto was a prime example of the band's talent and tightness, while a certain number of people took to studying time-keeper Cam Hines, no doubt hoping that his briliantly timed breakneck speed drumming becomes contageous the closer you get. By the end of the set a blind man could have seen the reasoning behind The Faults demand of late, and possibly due to vibrations shaking the floor, a deaf man could too" - Drum Magazine Perth November 06

"XPress EP Review"

"Prologue/Epilogue is a corker little EP from a band whose agenda for fun translates well through their quirky rock tomfoolery" - XPress Magazine 2006

"XPress Gig Review"

“The room was packed and the crowd was in full swing as the lads (and lass) belted out their set, which hovered between sweet saccharine hooks, experimental jams, flat-out rock moments and a few spots of ear-shattering screaming just to keep the punters on their toes.

Clearly a band making a conscious effort to continually create music that is different and not just rehash tired old clichés, The Fault are fully deserving of all their current success.” - XPress Magazine October 06


EP Prologue/Epilogue - Released September 06



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.
