FAMILY FODDER mit 11 "Love Songs"
Die hier schon mit Begeisterung vorgestellte FAMILY FODDER veröffentlicht elf "Love Songs". Hier die Labelinfo von STAUBGOLD:
A limited vinyl-only collection of 11 love songs by Family Fodder that have never before been released on vinyl.
Alig Fodder says: "We collected all the love songs together without all the annoying instrumentals, dubs and solos. Lou Reed once sang: 'No kinds of love are better than others'. I think he meant something else. The 'kinds of love' here include: the love for a child, nostalgic love and imaginary journeys, love renewed and shared, love of animals, love of music, nostalgia, love in loss and memory, love in kinship across generations, poetic and physical loving, love of the unknown or unfamiliar and the desperate love of needing."
Different versions of these songs are available on the albums "Classical Music" (2010) and "Variety" (2013) as CDs or digital downloads from the state51 Conspiracy label. Meanwhile the band (alive and well - but smelling funny after all these years) prepare for their second European tour this year, and are writing new material for the next album - working title: "Rough Mix".
Family Fodder was originally formed in 1979 by Alig Pearce - with a cast of thousands over three decades. They emerged from the melting-pot of 70s/80s London alongside This Heat, The Flying Lizards, The Pop Group, Slits and many others. The original formula consisted of psychedelic and new wave influences, incisive song-writing, improvisation, experiment and far-out dub mixing. They always managed to evade major exposure, but influenced generations of bands on five continents. Family Fodder was often more at home in the studio than on-stage, but completed several European tours as well as cherished performances in their native London.
The group released a series of compelling, now collectable singles and albums between 1979 and 1983. Described as "entertaining idiosyncratic experimentalism with pop sensibilities", they were best known for indie-chart hits such as "Debbie Harry", "Playing Golf (With My Flesh Crawling)" and "Savoir Faire". More recently, Family Fodder songs have been covered by Zion Train and Unrest, and they've been hailed as "unsung heroes" in The Wire.
Family Fodder also appear on the infamous Nurse With Wound list. "Their music was generally playful, a hint of dub and reggae mixed with absurd, blissful pop, with synthpunk and sometimes experimental instrumentation. Most of the lyrics were also sung in French, courtesy of original vocalist Dominique Levillain, a combination rumored to be of some significant influence over Stereolab." (Systems of Romance)
