Fat White Family’s last London show may have been a sold out Brixton Academy but the joy of playing grassroots venues hasn’t dwindled as the band have today announced two shows at the Lexington in Angel, London for the 30 and 31 January.
The band have also today released a video for their single ‘Feet’ as they gain momentum ahead of the album Serfs Up! - the follow up to Songs of Our Mothers, and first album to be released on Domino Records - out on 19 April.
Directed by C.C Wade the spectacularly shot video matches up to the ambition of the richly-layered track - a track that changes the emphasis of their music.
Where they were once gaining fans from playing throwing vintage guitar tones and drums to the forefront, now there's what sounds like an infinite depth to the number of layers. Creating sophisticated soundscapes, the track acts like a twisted sonic spell that sweeps you into the path of the imagery in the lyrics. It's impressive enough to think they'd have had to hire out Abbey Road or something, but they've pulled this off in their own studio in Sheffield with longtime collaborator Liam D.May at the controls. The studio is named Champzone.
Guests on the album include Baxter Dury as the band who weren't long ago playing to 100 people in Brixton boozers continue their rise as one of the most important bands in the world.
