Soul Punks Fait Accompli are renegades of the Sydney Underground independent music scene. With a cocktail of Punk mixed in with influences as varied as Sonic Youth, Faith No More, Queens Of The Stoneage, Rage Against The Machine & Nirvana, Fait Accompli cast a musical spell to create a sound which preaches fire to their personal struggles, politics and surviving Sydney making their music intense, but uplifting in its delivery.
With a dozen independent releases under the belt, various lineup changes and a two year hiatus, Fait Accompli returned with their single HIGHWAYS in 2018. With their strongest lineup to date; Ray Lalotoa (vocals, guitar) Skarlett Saramore (drums) Ava Van deyk (bass) and Matt Jenkin (guitar), Fait Accompli have returned to the studio to record their next album with Producer and friend; Ian Pritchett. Due for release late 2019.
Fait Accompli have opened for heroes; Dead Kennedys, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Sebadoh, New York Dolls and toured with Sage Francis. FAIT have also shared the stage with Violent Soho, Goons of Doom, Sticky Fingers, Wolfmother, Cog, Bad Dreems, Hard Ons, The Smith Street Band, The Bennies, Clowns, Born Lion, The Bungalows & many more.
Their live set has been described as the last show on earth before the Apocalypse, Fait Accompli are the true personification of their own genre which was coined in a review at one of their early shows – Soul Punk!
