SPOTLIGHT On… Natural Born Helter-Skelter Misfits FAT WHITE FAMILY

Favorite Turn Up The Volume bands

12 February 2022

Band: FAT WHITE FAMILY
Who: Natural born misfits with key members Lias Kaci Saoudi (manic frontman)
and Saul Adamczewski (musical director). They crawled out of their squats in
Peckham, London in 2011.

It’s really a miracle that the Family is still around as their first years were filled with too many drugs and booze, chaotic gigs (I know, I saw them several times. They even left the stage – nobody sober – after 20 disorderly minutes in France a couple of years ago) and different line-ups.

Despite all that make-or-break shit, the hit team survived with smiling faces and their concerts became tempestuous helter-kelter events, making them one of the best live
acts of the past 10 years I’ve ever witnessed and their records got better and better.

Manc rock legend Liam Gallagher is a big fan too. He invited the natural-born
misfits them to play at his upcoming massive outdoor shows in Knebworth (UK)

Albums

Champagne Holocaust (2014)
Songs For Our Mothers (2016)
Serfs Up! (2019)

Three TUTV favorites…

Black And White Reflections – Swedish Electro Artist FLYCKT Released Moody Debut Single ‘SPOTLIGHT’

Swedish musician and songwriter Flyckt (real name Rasmus Flyckt) previously a
member of successful Swedish band Urban Cone, starts his solo journey with
debut single SPOTLIGHT.

Flyckt elucidates: “Spotlight was one of the first songs I wrote after I got out of a toxic relationship with my then-girlfriend. I remember thinking to myself why I let this go so far. Everyone is in the Spotlight in their lives, and maybe that can be counterproductive in some sense. Like, it’s harder to take action cause you’re afraid that everyone is gonna judge you. I believe this song was a message to myself saying that it’s gonna be fine. If you want change,
you have to take action.”

Spotlight has the same sonic sentiments as Billie Eilish mega-hit ‘Bad Guy‘. Enigmatic, puzzling, and tremendously groovy. A delicate and affecting electro tune, coming straight out of a film noir. Music for the twilight hours, while sitting in the dark in your bedroom, thinking about what went wrong in the past, looking for answers to secure your future.

Here’s the freak show…
