Two Chances to See Fat White Family Beginning Tomorrow Night

April 1st, 2015

Following the dissolution of two other bands, Fat White Family—now Lias Saoudi (vocals), Saul Adamczewski (guitar and vocals), Adam Harmer (guitar), Jack Everett (drums), Nathan Saoudi (organ) and Taishi Nagasaka (bass)—formed in South London in 2011, combining rock, blues and bits of country. Noisey has declared, “They’re British rock and roll’s final hurrah—not just a fuck you to everything that has become sanitized but a reminder that rock and roll can, even as the last embers fade, continue to mean something beyond an NME cover.” Speaking of which, NME calls them “the best new band in London.” The weekly publication also has kind words for the wildly entertaining six-piece’s debut full-length, Champagne Holocaust (stream it below), labeling it “a fantastic racket” and “political, satirical and downright perverse.” But make no mistake, Fat White Family (above, doing “Is It Raining in Your Mouth” at last year’s Glastonbury) are a band best experienced live, and you can see them twice locally this month, tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge and then again on 4/30 at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
