From Lyon, France, this live-action musique concrete bit-crushed punk duo are long-time touring-partners with Secret Chiefs 3. It’s hard to believe it’s just drums and keyboards. If someone said FAT 32’s music stands upon foundations erected by bands like Lightning Bolt and Hella, they would be partially right. But the quintessence of FAT32’s music sparkles beyond such comparisons into regions occupied by artists like Spike Jones, Edgar Varese, Naked City and Squarepusher. Their live show so flabbergasted the members of Secret Chiefs 3 that they have dragged them all around the world for over 100 shows, and stood watching every night, never tiring of admiring FAT32’s ever-shifting set. It was decided that a recorded document of this music HAD to be made. The production talents of Randall Dunn (SunnO))), Master Musicians of Bukkake, Earth, Kinski) were brought to bear, and the result is an astonishingly crushing and lucid representation of this band’s irreducible formulae. With this CD, FAT32 proves that the best future-music in the digital age is still made 100% organically.
