Win Tickets To Fat White Family!
Congrats to our winner, Joe!
"Fat White Family sound just like they look—diseased, drug addled, utterly corrupt. ... At least [they] appear to be as genuinely unhealthy and depraved as their records and shows suggest." (Pitchfork)
"The rumours about the band may all be true: they once rode a donkey into a pub, band members have got their dicks out on stage, and one time they threw a pig’s head around the crowd. Frontman Lias Saoudi has performed while rubbing butter over his naked torso. But that’s not the only reason they’re Britain's most sensational young band. They're British rock’n’roll’s final hurrah - not just a fuck you to everything that has become sanitised but a reminder that rock’n’roll can, even as the last embers fade, continue to mean something..." (Vice)
"You can smell Fat White Family before you see them, or so I discovered this past summer when they played a former psychiatric hospital. The scent of the sun-warmed buddleia and brambles sprouting from the institutional dereliction was suddenly interrupted by that of unwashed male, cheap cigs and cheaper booze." (The Quietus)
Right, so Fat White Family are probably an acquired taste, but the real question is are they here to save rock & roll? Think Bad Seeds, The Fall, The Cramps for points of reference and enter to win tickets to their Seattle debut (21+) at Chop Suey on November 1 by e-mailing us with the subject line "Champagne Holocaust" (the name of their debut full-length) and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 10/31. Good luck!
