american friction / Bio

Originally conceived as surface to air anti-itch cream in a chemical laboratory buried deep in the mountains of Norway, these four lab rats, fleeing federal inspections, dug a tunnel and surfaced in Portland, OR like a scared, ferocious garden weasel with sharp teeth and a penchant for fine gardening. Compared to the sounds of bands like Fugazi, Mclusky / Future of the left and some other bands that have connections to large bodies of water, American Friction is a rock band, post punk whatever you want to call it band. They write songs, and they play them, with their musical instruments. Therapy is expensive, so they play shows instead.
