New Fat White Family LP
The Quietus , October 26th, 2015 20:21

Second record out next January

Fat White Family have announced details of their next album, the follow-up to their magnificent debut, Champagne Holocaust. The record will be called Songs For Our Mothers, which might well get them in trouble with trade descriptions, and is coming out on their own Without Consent label. Say Fat Whites of the record, "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 unliveable, 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 Shipman's 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." There has clearly been some oversight, as at least one of the titles below might not be considered '''''problematic'''''

Songs For Our Mothers tracklisting:

'Whitest Boy On The Beach'
'Love Is The Crack'
'Hits Hits Hits'
'Tinfoil Deathstar'
'When Shipman Decides'
'We Must Learn To Rise'
