"Upon reading the other reviews of this band I got the feeling that the reviewers were saying this band was some sort of offensive and silly punk thing... like they were a joke band or something. musically, they weren't. They were totally ahead of their time... especially if you're into dirge, melvinsy, blacksabbathy type punk. FANG's music is slow, down-tuned and HEAVY. The sound is fat, fuzzy and dark. The best album in my opinion is "landshark"... great production on all the instruments with a heavy bottom that I actually haven't heard in a long time. They were released on BonerRecords very early in the 80's and I actually think that the recording they got on this "landshark" album is fatter, fuller and better than later recordings of even heavier, slower bands like the MELVINS. whoever was working in the studio that day knew what they were doing. a must get."

"Anyone that was around the east bay punk scene in the early 80's knows that fang was a great band. They sang anthems for the whole east bay...berkley heathen scum, I am one! They were also a great live band, so if you want to see what bay area punk was like before gilman st. pick this up. The bay use to have alot of bands that played music like fang..bands like sick pleasure or the f...ups or condemmed to death."
For the love of FANG..

"This band was without question one of the most unique and all- around fun bands of the early to mid 1980s. Not only was Fang's Landshark ep one of the greatest "get drunk at punk rock party" records of all times. Their shows were amazing.. These guys played at bar in Broadripple, Indianapolis to a coven of hard-core Fang lovers that by the end of the set half the audience was on the stage, at the mic singing - "Skin Heads Smoke Dope" with Sammy. I must have seen a 1000 bands, but nothing has held a candle to that incredible show with Fang. This CD is must for any comprehensive Punk Rock collection. The contribution Fang made to the genre is a worth while musical commentary on the Punk scene in the 1980s.."
