FAT WHITE FAMILY Shares Bloody Track From New Album – Here’s ‘TASTES GOOD WITH THE MONEY’…

Brand new sonic impulses

21 March 2019

Early January South-London‘s most notorious misfits FAT WHITE FAMILY dropped lead single FEET from their upcoming, third, album. A karma-like chant with a ghostly and magnetic vibe. A totally different beast compared to their The Fall influenced post-punk mayhem of the early days, although their controversial appetite for shock treatment is
still intact. Oh yeah, the gang just shared another cut from the new LP. ‘TASTES GOOD WITH THE MONEY’ is their ode to good old rich West-London. The song is a contagious, groovy, sing-along humdinger featuring a sequence with their amigo Baxter Dury. The clip is directed by electro-dance artist Róisín Murphy and is a freaky, deranged, horror-ific and totally bloody parody. C’mon let’s join the mess right here…

FAT WHITE FAMILY Announces New Album And Shares Ghostly New Single ‘FEET’…

Brand new sonic impulses

10 January 2019

After their SONGS FOR OUR MOTHERS CD in 2016, FAT WHITE FAMILY‘s key members turned to other projects (Lias Saoudi joined The Moonlandingz and Saul Adamczewski formed Insecure Men). Obviously they still had time for another FWF album too. Third longplayer SERFS UP! will be out in April. Today the band dropped first single, called
‘FEET’ and it’s a totally different animal compared to anything they did before.

A press statement claims that: “Where once they soundtracked grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tinfoil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely.”

Feet‘ is an extended karma-like chant. A ghostly, magnetic and kaleidoscopic vibe. You’ll hear strings, a sort of monk choir in the back, cinematic sound sequences and lots of other stuff you wouldn’t associate with the collective once branded ‘the most dangerous new band in Britain‘. Hallelujah, I can’t wait for the new record. But first this close encounter of the third kind…

THE MOONLANDINGZ – On A Sweet Steamy Saturn Of Their Own When They Hit Planet Earth…

Smashing live performances…

One of the most intriguing new bands in ages. One that makes you ecstatic, one that energizes your lazy limbs, one that messes up your mind, one that you’ll remember
when they’re gone. And yes, unfortunately, the following message on their FB-page announces the farewell of THE MOONLANDINGZ‘s first visit on earth, let by outlaw
Johnny Rocket. Let’s bloody hope they return again some day. We need weirdos like
them, otherwise, we’re condemned to eternal boredom… “Only one month to go before
we hit the road for one more lap of honour before we take a break from playing live for
a while and start thinking about writing another ‘groundbreaking’ pop record and to allow
your favourite glamorous psychedelic pop hero, Johnny Rocket, to revert back to Lias Saoudi and the next exciting phase of the Fat White Family adventure.”

Let’s celebrate this outlandish combo once
more before they return to their lunar crater.

The good news is I saw them live twice…

Paradiso, Amsterdam – 26 April…

Dour Festival Belgium – 14 July…

One of the best 2017 albums – INTERPLANETARY CLASS CLASSICS – here on  Spotify

Now, I’ll prepare myself mentally for the return of the best band on this troubled planet…
