All music is innocent until proven guilty. To triangulate our sound, pick up signals from Kraftwerk, The B-52's and Goldfrapp. Or think of a half-remembered fever dream featuring Ferris Bueller and Grace Jones.
All bands are transient. The album “Fatty Gets A Stylist” was mostly written and recorded on a lap top over several months in the different locations we found ourselves in between Australia, South East Asia and our loft which is unfashionably located in West London.
The singer’s name is Kate Miller-Heidke. Her name may sound familiar but her voice will not. Not even her own band recognised she was Fatty's singer because of the unusual use of her lower register. Keir Nuttall is a guy who programs and produces.
Other musicians include bass player Justin Meladl-Johnsen (Air, Beck, Nine Inch Nails) and drummer Pete McNeal (Cake). Mickey Petralia (Flight of the Conchords, Beck, Eels) engineered and played percussion on much of the record.
‘Fatty Gets A Stylist’, the album, was mixed by Cenzo Townshend, a modern hero of the art of mixing and responsible for sculpting influences of ours such as Florence and The Machine, Bloc Party and Editors. He is such a genius they gave him an O.B.E. Or was it a Brit Award? Same thing. They were lucky enough to persuade him (it did take some bribery) to mix this record.
