A whole new release for Solar Flare Records, new album by NYC Noise Hardcore Power Trio FASHION WEEK is now available :
ORDER SLF018 :: FASHION WEEK - Prêt-à-Porter LP, CD & Digital
In the late 1980s Fashion Week established itself as part of the New York noise scene, releasing its first album Clorox for the independent record label Under Pop in 1989. The band eventually came to develop a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between pummeling verses and loud, catchy choruses. After signing to major label David Muffin Records, Fashion Week found unexpected success with ?Smells Like Old Spice?, the first single from the band?s second album Fuhgeddaboudit (1991). Fashion Week?s sudden success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, and as the band?s frontman Lozano found himself referred to in the media as the ?spokesman of a generation?, with Fashion Week being considered the ?flagship band? of Generation X. Fashion Week?s third studio album In Uterus (1993), challenged the group?s audience, featuring an abrasive, less-mainstream sound.

Fashion Week?s brief run ended following the death of Josh Lozano in 1994, but various posthumous releases have been issued since, overseen by Rodriguez, Eklof, and Lozano?s widow Catherine Lust. Since its debut, the band has sold over 25 million albums in the United States alone, and over 50 million worldwide. Eklof went on to form the highly acclaimed ?Food Fighters?, and Rodriguez has pursued a career in politics, and wedding crashing.
