Devin Friesen (FFWD Magazine) Says:

Next, we have the lovingly named duo Fuck Off Dad. Percussionist Eric Hamelin is quite the talent with junkyard electronics and percussion alike, while guitarist Eddie Dalrymple wrestles splintering feedback and strangled note clusters from his guitar, making Fuck Off Dad’s debut recording about as brash as, well, a tantrum where the words “fuck off dad” might get uttered. I get a heavy Daily Dance (the 1973 freakout album from guitarist Doug Snyder and percussionist Bob Thompson) feel from these two, especially during the (many) loud moments. Quieter moments find the duo in more nuanced territory, with Hamelin’s extended use of the drum kit (scraping, bowing) mingling ominously aside Dalrymple’s droning axe.

Boston Hassle June 13, 2013 by Dan

It is often a sign of living, interesting music when a duo lauded as two of ‘s best improvisers meet in either the live setting or on record. There are exceptions to this line of thinking (no one is going to wet their pants over the notion of say Derry, NH’s two best improvisers coming together. Sorry Derry, it had to be somewhere. And sorry to Derry’s improviser’s, I am ignorant of your scene and yes there is the possibility that it rips) but most of the time something interesting will come out of such sonic get togethers. FUCK OFF DAD is two of Calgary’s best improvisers throwing down in the same room together, and…for goodness sake this is a screamer, a mild melt, a bombastic display of dexterity handing itself over to the squelch side. FUCK OFF DAD tear at your ears having clearly attended the same melting parish as KEIJI HAINO, living somewhere in the community near where your favorite 90s no wavers went furthest off the tracks. A drums and guitar duo, Eric Hamelin and Eddie Dalrymple have pushed themselves over the cliff with this 6 track album of generally blasted and mean tugging and pulling and face smashing improv noise rock. All sorts of strange sounds bubble up throughout this listen. And it’s not ear saws the whole way through (though it mostly is) as the pair get down to ambient minimalism on the second to last track, and tackle cleaner bouts of fried sounds at times as well. If duo guitar and drum rampages followed and their inevitable counterpart, the meltdown, are the kind of noises you enjoy putting between the noggin from time to time then you no doubt have something fresh in this self titled album to deal with. Deal with it from UNIT STRUCTURE SOUND RECORDINGS. - See more at: http://www.bostonhassle.com/2013/06/13/fresh-stream-fuck-off-dad/#sthash.BRi0x7N3.dpuf

Weird Canada Love:

From the faded subconscious of Cameron Noble:

A quick online search for “fuck off dad” delivers varied results: A Twitter account dedicated to leaving angry messages for oblivious fathers, plus YouTube confessionals ranging from mildly entertaining to heart wrenching. And then there’sthe duo from Calgary who leave no room for subtlety. Fuck Off Dad’s self-titled release is a no-holds-barred 30 or so minutes of noise. Their particular brand — a series of crashes, fills, solos, guitar screeching and feedback — both commands your attention and fades into the subconscious. At times, they are reminiscent of Fantomas (Mike Patton’s avant-garde acid metal band) or John Zorn translated into distorted guitar. The outlier track, simply titled “B2”, is a quieter version of the previous chaos. Unsurprisingly, it stands out by proving that they do in fact possess restraint. Fuck Off Dad eschews any form or structure, which can be liberating and must be cathartic for the players involved. Not recommended for mixtapes.
