FARENHEIT 451

Farenheit 451 are a post punk/new wave/gothic band hailing from Aberdare, South Wales. 

 

Formed at the height of cold war paranoia the band took influence from John Peel's Festive Fifty, Sounds, NME, Flexi Pop, The Face and visits to world’s oldest record shop, Spillers Records in Cardiff. Farenheit 451 originally began life as a duo with Stuart on bass and vocals, Darren on guitar aided by Roland the drum machine, Roland (TR626).  First rehearsals took place late in 1981.

The songs may be have been written in the early 80’s but their sound is contemporary as ever. This current incarnation of Farenheit 451 sparks deep dark wails of delight with their originals showing a clear influence of the works of Joy Division, Killing Joke, Banshees and New Order plus nods to the mighty cannon of work from the likes of Robert Smith, Pete Murphy, Lou Reed, Howard Devoto and all the good guys and all the good girls who were outsiders then, now and always will be. Farenheit 451: “No longer the temperature at which book paper burns, but the temperature at which iPhones melt, fizz then vaporize”.
