Wo Fat are true believers. Believers in the Riff. Devout disciples of Rock. They have seen how far off the path purveyors of "Nu Metal" and current day "Punk Rock" have strayed and following in the footsteps of the rock and roll prophets of old, have returned to rock and roll’s roots: the blues. But don''t be fooled; the blues that Wo Fat is mining from is the dark, trance-inducing, backwoods blues of the north Mississippi hill country. The haunting mysterious blues of Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Wo Fat took this tribal hoodoo blues and used it as a foundation for their brand of heavy psychedelic rock. They cranked John Lee Hooker''s amp to 11!
Despite the heavy infusion of blues, Wo Fat is a rock and roll band above all else, naming Black Sabbath, ZZ Top, Leafhound, Randy Holden and other 70''s greats as well as more contemporary bands like Sleep, Fu Manchu, Kyuss and Church of Misery as major influences.
With obliquely political lyrics, blistering guitar solos and a nonstop stream of riffs, Wo Fat takes the listener on a journey through shadowy voodoo-filled swamps to another world where rock and roll is about the music, indivduality, rebellion and fighting The Man rather than about conformity
and the corporate bottom line.
