Junk Farm biography
JUNK FARM were founded as a Jazz-Fusion trio in Ruhrgebeit, Germany, during the summer of 2001 by Berthold FEHMER (organ & keyboards), Benjamin SCHPPRITT (guitars & vocals) - two former band mates from HOUSE of SPIRITS - who teamed up with percussionist Michael STICKEN.

A self-styled "Fusion trio from Hell", JUNK FARM combine jazz and funk with hard metal riffs by interweaving driving guitar grooves and complex rhythmic structures with strong melodies and dissonant harmonies. These techniques and soundscapes aim at eroding the traditional borders between demanding, experimental compositions and catchy, hook laden melodies while spicing their wry & observational lyrics on life with sarcasm and acidity.

Having previously supported both FATES WARNING and FREAK KITCHEN on tour, they signed to Unicorn Digital, a Canadian progressive rock label, in 2007, for the world-wide release of their second studio, 'Ugly Little Thing', and are presently at work on their third album.

The eclectic nature of JUNK FARM's style will ensure that they garner fans of many different styles of progressive music. However, their quirkiness, originality and choice of strange chord changes might particularly appeal to fans of MAGELLAN, NIACIN, MASTERMIND, ECHOLYN, FREAK KITCHEN and even Frank ZAPPA.

4 stars Junk Farm is a german trio with 3 albums released so far. The second one Ugly little thing from 2007 issued at Unicorn Digital is a great example how must be played heavy prog with a good doze of jazz fusion elements. This band is fun to listen and is something elese in musical scene, to much time over populated by unintristing bands. JUnk Farm desearve a far more bettwr view, because this album is a total winner in my book. The arrangements, the harmonis, all the instrumental passages are very ok, very intristing and in same time quite original album. The combination betwen jazz fusion elements with the heavy prog ones, give to this album a special status in prog scene. Nice guita parts, some great keybords aswell and above all a fantastic drumer. I can't extract a piece to be the best, all has that unique german flavour, all are great , inventive and well executed. Nice album, underrated band, I can recommend this one because is very pleasent, fun and original.

4 stars Cool release by this German band.

The basis of their sound seems to be melodic 70's inspired hard rock; quite similar to what King's X did years ago. Strong melodies, good vocals and vocal harmonies; and using the traditional verse/chorus structure in most of their songs.

Junk Farm then mix in elements from funk and fusion to create their own little niche in the world of music; and do so successfully most of the time.

Not a release that will set the world on fire; but a solid release. And if you like King's X, there's a good chance that this will be cool as well.
