Fire On Fire


Fire on Fire are an experimental folk band from Portland Maine, formed from members of Cerberus Shoal and Big Blood. In 2007 they released a self-titled ep on Michael Gira's Young God Records. Fire On Fire used to be the art-punk-prog-chaos collective Cerberus Shoal, but they ditched their electric instruments, went into hiding for a while, and now play all acoustic—stand up bass, mandolin, banjo, harmonium, accordion, acoustic guitar, dobro etc etc, and they all sing and harmonize on the songs.

Live, they do it “old school” and just use two mics placed in front of them on the stage, like a bluegrass band. They all live in the same house up in Maine, across from rusting green oil tanks, apparently.

To me they sound like a backwoods, fierce, psychedelic Mamas And The Papas or a crazed and joyously vengeful gospel string band. - Michael Gira/Young God Records 2008 Fire on Fire BIO by Fire On Fire: Fire on Fire began without a name in a warm kitchen in Maine. Some of us used to be in Cerberus Shoal. We were three friends whose musical interests grew outward from the punk roots of our youth to a more personal intimate exchange and we began playing songs for each other.

Songs on guitars banjos and harmonium with lots of words and voices. The music was living, open and it invited everyone to take part in it. The circle widened to include two more friends who brought rhythm melody and more voices and songs. Fire on Fire is now five friends who play fierce and emotionally sharp words to stab at our selves, our situations, our lives.

Our music comes from the heart of each singer and songwriter. Take that statement how you like. Each one of us brings themselves to the common table without self consciousness. Playing for the enjoyment of playing and in turn creating a live performance that is electric and ecstatic foot stomping and howling all the night long.

All five friends live together in a big blue house across from green oil tank # 28 in South Portland, Maine. Band Members are Colleen Kinsella (Asian Mae) – vocals, harmonium, guitar,accordion, banjo Caleb Mulkerin – vocals, guitar, banjo, dobro Tom Kovacevic – vocals, oud, nay, tamboritza, jembe, tamborine Chriss Sutherland – vocals, guitar, doumbek Micah Blue Smaldone – vocals, upright bass, banjo Read more on Last.fm.
