After having recently quit Plankeye, Scott Silletta (vocals'guitar) has just released his debut album under the monkier of Fanmail. Joined by Yob (guitar's/bgv's) , Fleetwood (bass) and Jason (drums), Fanmail evidently enjoy playing there peculiar brand of high energy, hard edged pop punk rock for those willing enough to latch onto 'The Latest Craze'. Scott has matured both his performance and song-writing since the early days of Plankeye, as Fanmail's debut album clearly demonstrates. Scott and co poke fun at at life with tongues firmly planted in cheeks; simultaneously directing the listener to Christ. Topics range from the deceit of fame ('Rock And Roll Star"), the celebration of family ('Jordi') and the need for humility ('Wonderful Punches'). 'The Latest Craze' is packed full of well produced and executed songs at the hands of Scott Silletta and Gene Eugene; where a truly original, yet familiar style is not only realised but also maintained throughout. Be a true fanatic, get into ' The Latest Craze'!
