Fat White Family
Seven years into a career defined by collapsing masculinity, Celtic mysticism, pound shop shamanism, provocation, eroticism, wanton violence, joy, radical empathy, narcissism, hog-like indulgence, personality defects and a fondness for both extreme left and right-wing aesthetics - and some of the best musical performances this fractured isle has ever witnessed - and the South London-spawned band return, clean(ish) and serene(ish).
Serfs Up! could be called a career-defining moment, were the Fat Whites – always a drug band with a rock problem - to ever have considered this a career. It’s not. It’s so much more. It’s struggle. It’s survival. Potential, finally, has been realised, the odds have been defied, and the Fat White Family’s greatness can no longer be denied.
