Fretblanket's first full-length, Junkfuel, is typical post-grunge mainstream rock that's influenced by Nirvana, but not nearly as original or raw. In fact, with its bland formula of loud, intricate guitar chords mixed with simplistic, pounding drums and heavy cymbals, Fretblanket sounds an awful lot like Bush. Even Will Copley's deep, almost hoarse vocals bear a strong similarity to Bush's Gavin Rossdale. Most of the songs on Junkfuel sound alike, including the album's two bonus tracks. Following the quintessential verse/chorus/verse model, the songs are basically the.

The English band Fretblanket were a little sensations because their debut album, Junkfuel (Polydor, 1994), was released when the band's members were still teenagers. Even more amazing was the fact that the album was ridiculously derivative, devoid of any artistic value.
