fuguers cove + other musica
fuguers cove is my lo-fi, garage rock, dub, punk, psych power pop solo project. It started in 1995 as a 4-track project inspired by early Beck and morphed into what it is now.
I write a lot of music, record most of it onto a Tascam 8-track, and release it for free (most EPs) or for cheap (most LPs)..
fuguers cove released the double-album Satanism on June 16, 2018, followed by the free sampler In Twenty on June 22.
The False Satanism EP, and some other nuggets are forthcoming in late 2018.
2017 marked the release of Polythene, Broken Wheel, Desire EP, Colours of our Sickness, Madison Tapes, Buffalo Comfort EP, Fronds EP, and the Soft Wolf EP. I also released an album of B-Sides.
Knights of June LP was released in February 2015. Gulf of Paria EP was released on May 1, 2015. In 2016, I released Johnny & Kay EP, the Parents EP, and four LPs: Delta, Blue Light, Evening Redness, and Miami Beach Bodega.

I run a fake record label -- Blue Corner Records -- featuring the work of my side projects: Euthanized Horse, Gin & Oats, The Marshmen, Regime, The Burning Silos, Tropical Bluebirds, Anarchist Wolves, Tropical Marmot, and Industrial Capitalism. I have songs for all these bands, and albums for some of them. One day I'll most of these songs posted.
My anarchist black metal project -- Anarchist Wolves -- released their second EP, To the Barricades, in April 2018.

Colours of our Sickness is voted one of the top Albuquerque music releases of 2017!
Per August March of the Weekly Alibi:
"Fuguers Cove is one of the nom de plumes of underground artist Justin Bendell, a dude who really does live somewhere deep in the Manzano Mountains where he writes, makes music and watches the clouds. Serio. He’s recorded heaps of music since appearing in this part of the material world, but his summer album release, Colours of our Sickness, is like totally sick in its mastery and twisted expression of pop music and guitar rock tropes. Track 12, “Colours of our Love,” reaches toward exuberant rock anthem status, almost casually, with blistering drums leading the way. I predict The Oh Sees are going to make this album, but maybe not until 2019."
