Fops‘ debut CD/LP, Yeth, Yeth, Yeth was released worldwide in Fall 2010 via UK label Monotreme Records. Many of the songs on For Centuries were culled from their first album’s sessions. These tracks are mostly bedroom pop, sounding like Conny Plank producing Darklands era Jesus & Mary Chain or a closeted Ultravox. The mini-album’s themes include artifact obsession, villains contemplating their lives as they fall from the sky, the killing of defenseless creatures, and the yearning for ancestral homes.
