Fat White Family

So the whole (un)civilised world wants in on CMU Artist Of The Year 2013 features Fat White Family, whose ‘repulsive’ pull grows stronger with every weird, horrible, incredible song they spit out.

‘Touch The Leather’, a two-sided story of skin and cowhide full of holes and chewed-up, slovenly riffs, is the most recent of those, and is coming out (like it or not) on 3 Mar on Hate Hate Hate Records.

Fat Whites’ ‘Tour Of Struggle’ begins, perversely, on 14 Feb, at The Hope in Brighton. And whilst the tour ends on 25 Feb at London’s Electrowerkz, the struggle will, I’m guessing, go on, hopefully with lots more shows like this one still to come.

You may now ‘Touch The Leather’:
