Biography

When they started this band they had already been dabbling in music for a few years. Their first release was a compilation called “Technical Choas”, released by Mark Laliberte, a college DJ in Canada in 92”. The full compilation “Mechanics of Deconstruction” featued bands like: Exorcist, Din, Vampire Rodents, STG, Digital Poodle to name a few. This band, Fektion Fekler, was among the above.

Harnessing a sound that utilizes elements of electro, pop, industrial and ambient with an at times quirky sense of addictive rhythm, Fektion Fekler has been pushing the envelope of electronic music for over a decade now. Their sound is danceable, yet, is music that one can dance to as much with the heart as one does with their feet, the sound can not really be categorized at all. There are simply some bands that can only be labeled as themselves and that is one of the rarest honors in this age of often-copycat music.

Brothers John and Robert Bustamante formed Fektion Fekler in 1989. They have appeared on many compilations including the first of the Elektrauma series. They released a full-length cassette entitled Distressed Tension on SPH Records and an EP called Soul Assassin on Bright Green Records. After many years of hiding out, Fektion Fekler finally reappeared in early ‘96 with more compilation work, and the long-awaited debut CD on Pendragon Records, From Here to Heaven which was released to critical acclaim both domestically and internationally, a CD composed of more than a decade of work.
