Let’s just say that FanOffBirdSafe isn’t going to be playing your wedding reception anytime soon. The Eau Claire-based three piece rocks hard, plays well, and has more EC music pedigree than you can shake a stick at. Between FanOffBirdSafe’s three members (Michael Bushman, Matt Florence, and Andy Mulheron) there are multiple bands, a couple of zines, and enough street cred to take to the bank for a sufficient real estate loan. FanOffBirdSafe sounds like Steve Albini on steroids, or the sonic equivalent of a drunken shoving match. The bombastic, walled guitar sound is supplemented by Florence’s agile bass playing. It’s a sound that even Bushman sees as still developing. “It’s really new now. I’ve been working with some pedals and effects to establish my sound a little more. ... Even the songs I’ve written for other bands sound completely different when we play them.”
