The beginnings of No Fair Hearing originated when John Schwinn met Jon Feldheger while attending Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Washington, a suburb to the north of Seattle. The two quickly bonded over a mutual interest in rock music. Both had supportive parents who encouraged their sons' musical interests. When they met, Feldheger already had a beat up, red sparkle, Premier Drum kit, purchased from a friend of his brother a few months earlier. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Schwinn surprised his son with a brand new Fender Stratocaster guitar. Soon the two seventeen year-olds were jamming regularly, influenced heavily by Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who. Several years later, while working at Dynacare Laboratories in Seattle, Feldheger met bassist Eric Sorenson. It was there Feldheger asked if he might want to join Schwinn and himself for a jam session. At the time Eric was playing in two bands; a jazz band and a heavy metal outfit, yet the easy-going bassist found time in his busy schedule to jam with the two rockers. Right away they knew they were on to something. Their sound was different. Yes,it was heavy, loud, garage music; but it was also melodic - a psychedelic grunge sound that was unique. Setting up in the living room of Schwinn's apartment the band began recording their first record. The neighbor's complained but not before they had recorded enough material to complete the album. Since their music combined elements of hard rock and heavy metal music they decided to name the album "Metal Fusion." Besides being a top notch drummer, Jon Feldheger is a fine artist. Through his contacts in the LA art scene he met up with world famous artist, Terrell Moore, and the two fast became friends. Terrell was kind enough to design the cover art for this CD. It is his photos that adorn the front, back and sleeve insert on the album. Terrell's art can be veiwed at TerrellMoore.com. As for future plans: The next album will contain vocals, and the band is currently auditioning for a lead vocalist. A new album is planned for later in 2011. The band is also planning on playing some local gigs in the Seattle area, and a website is also in the works. In an age where songs are set to exact cookie-cutter formats with click tracks, tape loops and monotonous techno beats the sound of No Fair Hearing is refreshing. There are no robotic hip-hop beats here. Instead you hear the dynamics of musicians playing by the skin of their teeth, pushing and pulling each other to higher levels. If you grew up with, or recently discovered, garage rock from the mid-sixties, psychedelic rock from the late sixties, hard rock from the seventies, or grunge rock from the early nineties then I think you will find much here to enjoy. As plans for the band develop and new milestones are acheived, we will keep you posted. Until then, take care, and we will talk again soon. No Fair Hearing.
