“While our first LP might be considered an assault, a spasmodic outpouring of disdain generated by the utter tedium of life when it is found unlivable, Songs For Our Mothers is an invitation. It is an invitation, sent by misery, to dance to the beat of human hatred. In it we ask that you take us gently by the hand as we lead you on a journey, a journey that leads us from the blinding white heat of a midday Mediterranean shore, to the embattled boudoir of Ike and Tina Turner, from the clotted grey droll of Dr Harold Shipman’s waiting room, to the final hours of the Third Reich in the Berlin bunker.
It is as much a catalogue of our obsessions as it is a sensual odyssey; sex, drugs, politics, death, the Northern Irish A-lister Sam Neil, it’s all here, all that’s left to do now is breath it in.” ¬†-FWF
An intense and exciting proclamation from Fat White Family, our favorite psychfolk punks from the sewers of¬†London who, after just one full-length, have decided to embark on a concept album¬†of grand proportions for their sophomore endeavor. ¬†As of now, there are no soundbytes to accompany this¬†announcement, but expect some moonshine-soaked Appalachian hooliganry, a bit of¬†dust in your eyes and some sharp pains in your ribcage. ¬†Picture The Shaggs in a gridiron grudge match with The Black Lips and The Mothers of Invention while Titus Andronicus throw beer bottles from the bleachers.
