Fist Of Facts
Fist Of Facts
The bastard child of Liquid Liquid’s Salvatore Principato & Ken Man Caldeira (part of the Liquid Liquid extended family and original Liquid Idiot member).

Fist Of Facts began life in a basement studio on Ludlow Street, downtown Manhattan, in the mid-80s. The bastard child of Liquid Liquid’s Salvatore Principato & Ken Man Caldeira (part of the Liquid Liquid extended family and original Liquid Idiot member) the bands original carnation lasted nearly a decade during which they created a uniquely downtown New York sound evoking a musical, cultural and political construct that could only have evolved at that particular time in that particular place. The Fist Of Fact's sound was mostly captured on a 4-track recorder synched to some long expired sequencing software, however, in performance the band consisted of Sal, Ken Man and a computer or possibly a nine piece ensemble replete with a horn section. Never standing still long enough to be defined, Fist Of Facts defied any attempt to stifle the spirit of their music and strove to avoid compromise, digging deep into the idiosyncracies of their personal experiences, political understandings and musical sensibilities. The band developed through an ever changing lineup of significant contributors who passed through the studio or took to the stage to help decorate the sound and make their mark. Among those who contributed to this project were Mark Cunningham, Felice Rosser, Don Dowdye, Carlos Vivanco, Genevieve Boulet De Monvel, Jojo Kuo, James Duncan, Paddy Boom, Dave Mandl and many others. Their initial release was with Helvete Underground Records out of Geneva, Switzerland in 1988, in 2010 the London imprint, Claremont 56, released some of the bands archived recordings in a 500 limited edition vinyl copies. They periodically come together to update their music and play live shows.
