"Wiping the floor with bands twice their age" - DAZED AND CONFUSED
Lovely, heavy, fuzzy songs nodding towards The White Stripes and The Rolling Stones, performed with slurry, sulky vocals, insolent swaggers and nasty growly antique guitars being elegantly massacred. - Venue Magazine
1 guitarist, 1 bassist, 1 drummer, 1 van, 2 years, over 100 gigs around the country and 30,000 miles have brought Figment to where they are today - playing their second national tour to sell-out crowds.
A blossoming reputation as one of Bristols hottest live acts led to a slot opening the 2005 Ashton Court Festival and Bristol scene showcase The Gunpowder Plot in November 2005. Indeed praise from the music press has been unanimous. The band have earned favourable comparisons to The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, The Clash, Nirvana and The Libertines. To describe these comparisons as complete though would be unfair, Figment still manage to retain a sound which is all their own stripping rock music back to its primal, gnarly basics with Lovely, Heavy, Fuzzy Songs.
