‘More Great Hits!’
A 2CD Anthology
Family Fodder are a group of musicians based around Alig Fodder, often with French singer Dominique. They’re best known for their compelling, now-collectable UK cult indie-chart hits such as ‘Debbie Harry’, ‘Playing Golf’ and ‘Savoir Faire’, and albums ‘Monkey Banana Kitchen’, ‘Sunday Girls’ and ‘Schizophrenia Party’.
They’ve regrouped a number of times since their initial early 80’s releases, producing an album ‘Water Shed’ on US indie Dark Beloved Cloud along with other recordings and a ‘best of’. They’ve been covered by Unrest, Steveless and Zion Train, coveted by DFA Records and hailed as ‘unsung heroes’ in The Wire and elsewhere.
‘More Great Hits!’ is a double-CD anthology, with 42 tracks covering their entire history, including many in alternate versions and also previously unreleased tracks.
Reviewers are often effusive in their comments: -
"A dozen shining moments turn arty abstraction into astonishingly delightful thinking man’s bubblegum. Debbie Harry is easily one of post-punk’s best and weirdest 45s." – CMJ New Music News.
"Alig can write songs. Byrne-quality love-songs" – New York Press.
"Family Fodder exude an exhilarating sense that everything was possible, that there weren't any limits to imagination and humour. The scope of their musical range remains as dizzying and exciting as it once was." - Time Out New York
The release coincides with a flurry of new musical activity from Alig. He’s recorded a track for artist David Shrigley’s new ‘Worried Noodles’ album; collaborated with Domino Records’ Psapp; has a 7” out on the Berlin Tom Lab label and just out is a new mini-album ‘Baby Talk’ as ‘Idol Fodder’ with Dominique’s daughter Darlini, on Slender Means Society.
‘More Great Hits!’ includes a brand new track ‘Hippy Chick’ (“Devon is full of them – it’s now 2nd and even 3rd generation hippy chicks”).
In 2011 Family Fodder released a new album 'Classical Music', and in 2013 have another scheduled: 'Variety'. More info at www.familyfodder.co.uk
