Formed in a squat in Peckham, South London in 2011, The Fat White Family comprises of Lias Saoudi (vocals), Saul Adamczewski (guitar/vocals), Nathan Saoudi (keyboards), Adam Harmer (guitar), Jack Everett (drums), and Taishi Nagasaka (bass). The band have garnered critical and public adulation for their skuzzy mix of country, rock & roll, post-punk, and nihilistic psychedelia, recalling the likes of The Fall, The Birthday Party, Butthole Surfers and Country Teasers. Following a series of highly charged and memorable gigs, the Brixton-based band released their first single, “Cream of the Young” followed by several more singles (“Heaven on Earth,” “Touch the Leather,” and a split 7″ with the band Taman Shud) on Trashmouth Records throughout 2013, followed by their debut album, “Champagne Holocaust”, which received an American release via Fat Possum Records in August 2014.

The Late Show With David Letterman

In the past year, The Fat White Family have been critically acclaimed, both in the UK and the US. They were among the nominees for Best Live Band and Best Video (for Touch The Leather), at this year’s NME Awards in London, and were part of the NME Awards Tour in February. The band recently made their network television debut on the Late Show With David Letterman, and kicked off their North American tour on April 29th. A new album is in the works for later this year.

“Fat White Family have a knack for turning questionable taste into excellent punk rock.”
Rolling Stone

“…utterly unhinged live performances that have become claustrophobically packed, must-see events…they incited a full-on freak-out – the longest and most crowd-engulfing mosh pit I’ve seen at a club show in years.” Maxim (read article)

“…rock ‘n’ roll desperados who play with such debauched ferocity that you worry their art will be the death of them.” New York Post

“…..excellent, wild performers… great stuff.” Brooklyn Vegan

“….the most exciting young band in Britain…” Q Magazine

“...unconscionably thrilling. “ The Guardian

“…reminds me of long-lost groups like the Cravats and Marc Riley and the Creepers, as well as perennially loved cult artists like the Gun Club and the Fall….Don’t ever lose your ramshackleness and devil-may-care attitude, Fat White Family.” The Stranger

“…refreshingly unique... Bust

“Fat White Family have this dirty energy to them that just takes over a room…f you cut loose and let them work their magic on you, it’s a grand old time.” WeAllWantSomeone

‘Champagne Holocaust’ is available through Fat Possum Records, and the band also have their own label, Without Consent.
