Fingers-Cut, Megamachine! were a Los Angeles based folk/indie band that formed in 2002 as the new project of formed Osker frontman Devon Williams. Fingers-Cut, Megamachine! draw influences from indie, pop, country music, as well as traditional American acoustic folk music. Although frequently compared with Iron & Wine, Wilco, and Bright Eyes, the bands sound is uniquely characteristic. "I think it does more harm than good to talk about the pseudo folk revival. It's a dying trend and its rooted in contrived throwback material.

I feel current, but i do take notes from late 60s early 70s american folk (check for songs by John Prine, Loudon Wainwright III, really check out Townes Van Zandt's queen carousel if you can). Its straight singer-songwriter stuff, and i love folk stuff, but i am hesitant to say the word given its connotations today. As far as the word punk goes, I think its kinda given who will initially check this record out. The "osker contingent" is already there so repeating that its punk flavored is sort of redundant.

Really, I know what i am and its bitter, frustrated, jaded, and is that punk? I just feel discontented. I think those negative feelings try to be released through the lyrics of the songs, but end up getting screamed in place of adequate expression. I guess my whole thing is I need to feel comfortable just doing this thing, and I feel uncomfortable using other groups as stepping stones to sell records. I think acknowledging other groups when defining oneself is dangerous, I'd feel totally better just coming up with our own thing if we painted a picture for the reader/listener.

Was I helpful?" - Devon Williams On June 12th, 2006, Devon Williams announced on the band's official website that they were finished. In July and August, he toured (and sold a demo with new material) under his own name instead of the Fingers-Cut, Megamachine! moniker. Dave Benitez (formerly of Osker and part time member of Fingers-Cut, Megamachine!) is now part of a new project called The Black Heartthrobs. Read more on Last.fm.
