[. . .] Montreal’s ¡FLIST! carves out a sound that resists comparison with his contemporaries in Montreal or almost anywhere else.Tom Avis, Chart Attack, Nov. 13th 2014

¡FLIST!’s debut album, Fuck You Im Dead, was written over an 8-year period and accordingly, takes the listener on a gambol from twisted crooning torch songs in the style of Marc Almond, to carnivalesque interpretations of contemporary mainstays like Busta Rhymes and MIA. While the album celebrates all of the most explosive and vulnerable aspects of the human condition, ¡FLIST! provides his audience with a masterfully constructed, seamless collage of musical genres.

Officially released in Canada on CD, cassette, and as a digital download on November 11th 2014 by Art Not Love Records.

The release party was held at SAT Montreal’s Satosphère dome along with a special presentation of Pop d’Epoque’s Party Like it’s 1699 for M for Montreal.  The album was performed in it’s entirely by a four piece consisting of Peggy Hogan, Marc-André Roy, Nick Schofield, and Charlie Twitch. Live visuals were performed by visual artist Frances Adair McKenzie, projected onto the 180° multi-channel dome.
