FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS Released Debut LP ‘COME FIND YOURSELF’ 25 Years Ago Today

20 February 2021

Band: FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS (New York)
Making fun since 1993.

Album: COME FIND YOURSELF – debut LP
Released: 20 February 1996 – 25 years ago today

AllMusic/Maggie Serota: “The Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ debut release, Come Find Yourself, is
both a catchy love letter to the trio’s New York City roots and a mid-’90s rap-rock party album… Even though the band touches on dark themes, the music is energetic and funky enough to keep it from being too subversive. In the end, Come Find Yourself is a perfectly crafted summertime party album.”

Turn Up The Volume: Relaxing groovin’ and movin’ soundtrack for a night out on the
town with your lover having shots of tequila in your favorite midnight bar followed by some scooby snacks at 6 o’clock in the morning before returning home. Drunk, tired
and satisfied.

Singles: Scooby Snacks / The Fun Lovin’ Criminal /
The King Of New York / The Grave And The Constant

FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS Feat. ROWETTA Gonna Catch Up When It’s ‘DAYLIGHT’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

FUN LOVIN CRIMINALS are back from being never away. On 18 January the funky New York hip-hoppers will release the follow-up to their 1999 compilation LP Mimosa.. Simply entitled ANOTHER MIMOSA the album “is a continuation of a long tradition of the FLC paying homage to those great songwriters that we stand on the shoulders of. From our love of hip-hop, to soul to jazz and rock we humbly offer our fans another taste of our unique cocktail.” says frontman Huey Morgan.

Ahead of the LP’s launch comes smooth taster DAYLIGHT. It’s FLC’s interpretation of the 1975 hit by the late great soul voice Bobby Womack. A chill-out song about that feel good state of mind after a night out. The Criminals definitely knew why they called the wonderful Rowetta (long-time member of the mad Happy Mondays, besides countless collaborations with high-profile artists) to do the backing vocals. Her characterful bluesy Motown vox fits the mood of this crooning vibe perfectly. Now, sit back, relax, dim the lights and enjoy…
