Fat Freddys Drop
27 June 2006
Cabaret Sauvage, Paris, France
Fat Freddys Drop is a group from Wellington, New Zealand, and from their record label:
"first and foremost a live band, fusing skanking urban Pacific roots, soul, dub,
jazz and electronics into hypnotic and thunderous grooves". They also make good music.
This is an audience recording from a show in Paris, summer 2006. I emailed them to ask what
their policy was on spreading concert recordings, but never received a reply. I then held onto
this, in case the new songs here were to be released on the scheduled new album, so as not to
spoil the surprise. Now the new album is delayed again, til year end 2008, and maybe these
3 new tracks don't make it onto the album anyway, at least in these versions.
So to keep the fans fed, here is some live stuff.
Buy their commercial releases and get ready for a euro tour in November 2008!.
