Satisfact, The Third Meeting At The Third Counter

by Sarah Zupko


Often unjustly tagged as 80s new-wave-wannabes because of the analog synthesizers that weave through their songs, Satisfact is really more of a fully modern post-punk band that has earned its chops from dwelling in the space-rock stratosphere. Informed by Gang of Four, Joy Division, Fugazi, and Spacemen 3, this last album of Satifact’s career clocks in at a mere 30 minutes. But what a dizzying ride that half-hour is! Twisted guitar riffs and jams intertwine with funky rhythms and hypnotic synthesizers. The bad news is that Satisfact has broken up—Josh Warren and Chad States have formed a new group, fcs north, while Matt Steinke is playing with both Octant and Mocket. The good news is they’ve gone out with a bang and not a whimper.
