F-Units performing “Wild Wild Life” by Talking Heads during designer Diego Binetti’s 2013 NY Fashion Week Show.
One enthusiastic fan made our entire Central Park show worth while.
“Alone In Babylon” is a sound that has been missing in the rock scene for a seemingly long time. It definitely invokes 1994 in all of the right ways (that means no R.E.M.) without trying to hard to mimic any particular band. F-Units’ sound is definitely their own and I sure as hell enjoy it.Readjunk.com
Album Reviews | By Creature of War on July 13, 2011
New York’s F-Units sound like they grew up in a nursery that pumped them full of nothing but 90’s alternative rock radio. They’re sound is heavily influenced by the sounds of Soundgarden, Green Day and Caroline’s Spine.
The tracks are catchy fast-paced rock and roll with guitar solos around just about every corner. Sprinkled throughout are offshoot instruments like a violin here, a trumpet there, that add another layer to an overall solid track. What stands out to me the most is how
much the F-Units rock. A band like them would be a welcome breath of fresh air into the very stale rock airwaves. Their driving drums, flesh melting string shredding and well produced tunes could slap Dave Grohl in the face and bring him back into the world of
F-Units are not only impressive musically but are completely DIY. Every aspect of “Alone In Babylon” was produced, designed, advertised by the band themselves and, for the quality of the final product, is very impressive.

Bottom Line: A solid hard rock album from start to finish.
Notable Tracks: Black California, Alone In Babylon, Rebel Songs, You’re Just A Tease
An amazing set outside in Central Park at the “Bring Rock Back Fest” got even better when a inspired fan decided to liven up the party!
Scotty B of F-Units captured this raucous video of Foxboro Hot Tubs (Green Day) performing “27th Ave. Shuffle” at the underground NYC venue The Bowery Electric. Stick around til the 2:13 mark when Billie jumps on his head.
F-Units will be playing The Bowery Electric again on August 22, 2013 at 8:30pm.
