FAT WHITE FAMILY
The Fat White Family formed in 2011, South London, and consists of 6 members. They sound like a mixture of 60's psychedlia, abject nihlism, northern english post punk, extreme left politics, country music and absurdist humour and have been likened to the Butthole Surfers, the Fall, the Birthday Party and Charles Manson in reviews.
The band recently won the Quitetus/BBC 6 Cult Star of tomorrow award, and since the release of their first single in February, have received a broad spectrum of media attention and radio play, both domestically and around the globe. The band are currently promoting their debut album, working on their 2nd LP and planning a tour of Algeria. Once you have seen them play you will not forget Fat White Family.
DJs on the night
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul) More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
DANSETTE 45 (Modtown Rockers)
Expect a record bag full of razor sharp 60s rockers, two-tone shakers, northern soul and Motown shoe shufflers!
DJ MAGGOT (Bitter Sound System)
A feast of old school funk, soul dancehall, spiced up with some punk and new wave.
Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.
