With live music nothing but a distant memory given the current crisis, we’re dipping back into the Far Out Magazine vault to provide your music fix.
As millions of people remain in lockdown around the world, the idea of a stinking, sweaty and debauched live show with the Fat White Family sits very much in the nostalgia bracket. With that in mind, we’re revisiting their majestic live show at the quite brilliant Hebden Bridge Trades Club.
Fat White Family, a band who have been in transition for a number of years given their chaotic existence, are brewing like that dirty cuppa of yours after leaving the bag in for too long. The skin is on. It looks wrong but tastes and smells just right.
Fat White Family, like the rest of you climbing the walls at home, are ready for a return.
To put the issue in a revised situation, to change the way we indulge our live music, we’re reimaging the band as they hit the stage of Hebden Bridge in what was a past preparational warm-up show. At the time of their gig, as the band had the pressure of a new LP on the way, their ‘Tour Of Discipline’ displayed Fat Whites in a new light as they ran through a couple of new tracks and rolled out some of the fan favourites.
With Saul Adamczewski seemingly back in the group after previous in-band issues, Fat Whites look healthier and happier and well and truly in the mood to make a mess of countless venues across the country.
While we all need to wait patiently for the crisis to be over, here’s some live footage of their show in Hebden Bridge:
