The single includes two new songs: Deja Deja Vu and Vampyre On My Brain.
Here’s a little note from The Fodder:
‘Game Away’ was originally written in 1980 as the follow-up to ‘Savoir Faire’; we never got the version we wanted on tape and it slipped into obscurity. This version is a new remix with Bill Brand and Alig Fodder on vocals, Grahame Painting on guitar.
‘Vampyre on my Brain’ is a new song - a Gothic romance that we forgot to release in time to cash in on Halloween. It examines the ennui experienced by Vampires as disadvantaged individuals, and expounds the theory of diminishing returns as applied to drinking fresh human blood at full moon.
Due to the cuts, Family Fodder have run out of dope only 3 months into their Singularity project.
As an emergency response they have sent lead singer, Darlini, to India to get some decent hash.
She will be back for gigs in October. Probably. Definitely.
Meanwhile, Fodder’s newest recruit, the lovely and talented Mae K. steps up to the mike.
Mae lives in deepest Devon in a caravan with her cat and her band, The Midnight Fairground.
Evil mastermind, Alig, manipulates her with drugs and genetic technology to sing about stuff that never really happened years before she was born. An alchemical wedding forged in Totnes.
Why don’t we do it all again, and drive a Hippy Bus to Spain?
Don’t miss Alessia’s video!
Meanwhile the inscrutable Dupont remixes Strangest Games in the rain and mud whilst Fodder stalwarts, Grahame, Mick, Rick and Alig bash their way through Not Enough Indians.
One for all and All for one! Your Karma just ran over my Dogma.
Happy Easter, Readers!
At 13.00 GMT today sources close to Family Fodder denied rumours of creative bankruptcy and fiscal instability following the recent leak of documents pertaining to projected single release series SINGULARITY.
With the brand new CD album, Classical Music, only just reaching the shops, evil mastermind, Alig Fodder, announces an audacious seriesof 12 single releases in 2011 on The state51 Conspiracy.
The singles are strictly limited editions with hand-finished artwork by celebrities, but also generally available digitally.
Fodder has capped the maximum price at £9,000 – but with means-tested discounts widely available.
From the cheerful numb-core of Cuddle in a Puddle or bogus nostalgia of Transit Van to Spain, to the shameless dredging of the vintage vaults and over-exploitation of album tracks, Fodder has devised a striking series of songs crafted to suit all tastes and pockets.
The US State department has praised this series as
“A courageous entrepreneurial tone-poem of speculation, liberty and democracy”.
Fodder denies that poorer artists will foot the bill, and regrets the phased introduction of four-string austerity guitars and one-stick drumkits:
“These are temporary measures.” states Fodder –
“There is absolutely no problem of solidity, liquidity or creative reserves.
You are either with us or against us. Buy the whole set.”
Family Fodder’s latest and greatest album is now out to purchase!!
Here is someone else who agrees with us:
“Classical Music is a big, beautiful, magpie of a record. One made by a band who offer a reminder that true musical freedom, the kind that post-punk in its purest form should rightfully stand for, demands that you continue to look forward and defy expectation, even when the fashion pendulum once again swings your way.” The Quietus
