Based in Johnstown in the USA Christopher S. Bell, Rod Fisher, Gerald Mattis and Matt Miller form the angst-rock band Fine Wives.
Those who remain alert will be pondering the idea of Christopher S. Bell as a name known and you are quite correct from the previous article about C. Scott And The Beltones – the one and same. However no need to get out the log-tables with Fine Wives who lay their hearts on their sleeves and make it slightly easier for the listener to understand.
A lo-fi jig-saw puzzle spreads across the room in hazy discolouration, though, rather than leaving the listener to connect the pieces the players tease the edges towards each other, whilst leaving the listener to fill in the spaces.
The members do not seek to add volume, rather generate textures which fan inside one another, like bird flight feathers, allowing Fine Wives to provide music which signals dissent, without trying to lead the revolution, as they ponder of dysfunction and request the audience to reconsider their own blind-side and leaving it to them to respond, whilst like a Matron, scowling at the unrepentant.
From the LP Thin Lives (available on bandcamp) the opening of the six tracks Western Standards.
