Today see's Fat White Family release their second album 'Song For Our Mothers' on their own label - Without Consent Records.
This is what they had to say about it -
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 Shipmans 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 breathe it in.
Fat White Family were one of our favourites at Dot to Dot in 2015, check out their incendiary performances below.
The album follows their widely acclaimed debut 'Champagne Holocaust' released in 2013. 'Song For Our Mothers' was co-produced by Liam Trashmouth with the Fat White Family and recorded at the Trashmouth studios in New Malden and Marcata Studios in New Paltz in upstate New York.
