Fighting Fiction performed at Walk The Line Festival 2009

Fighting Fiction performed at Walk the Line Festival 2009, providing a popular rock set at the Frog and Fiddle. The band's sound is a powerful collision of indie rock guitar riffs, reggae tinged punk and socially aware lyrics. These are songs written with anger and sung with passion. The Bristol based four-piece evoke an honest and fundamentally English sound that is reminiscent of the brooding reggae guitar hooks of 'London Calling' era Clash, the lyrical wordplay and vocal delivery of Billy Bragg, and more recently, the acoustic guitar based sing-along sensibilities of Frank Turner and the King Blues.

Recorded with Producer Mark Williams (Bloc Party, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Oceansize) A buoyant energy shines through the recording. The un-apologetic sheer youthfulness of gang vocal infused choruses and hook lines show the listener these songs are made to be sung back at them.

"Stormin' Norman! Tight punchy playing and production with warped off-kilter lyrics in the great English tradition of songs like Arnold Layne and Tracy Jacks. A storming track." - Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music).
