Album Notes
If a band could be a sandwhich, Fattback is the Hero. In a given set, Fattback can go from sounding roots rock, to synth-driven power pop, to honky-tonk, to funk and more. Rich harmonies, and often hilarious lyrics seal the deal for the St. Louis natives, who when asked to describe themselves, came up only with "...moose rock". Fattback has been featured twice on KDHX radio, most recently on the Local Artist Spotlight. And also in numerous local publications which describes them as having "..clever lyrics and progressive turnarounds..rounded attack, polyphonic riffs..and blessedly tight rythymic runs." Fattback will spend much of 2008 finishing and touring in support of their upcoming record.

"Like a cross between Southern Culture on the Skids and Haircut 100, Fattback combines novelty jokes, social commentary, surf, new wave and country rock for a chaotic but fun mix of pop styles." - KDHX Community Radio St. Louis

"St. Louis band Fattback excels at performing under the influence and has yet to be a issued a citation for sucking." - Lawrence.com

Fattback is rad.
Briefly A Zombie is an entertaining showcase of Fattback's creativity and humor, as well as their outstanding musicianship. This album evokes a variety of emotions with melancholy songs such as Blacksmith and the upbeat lightheartedness of songs like Taiwan and Lemme Get A Dollar. Each song is equally captivating, whether it tells a story of a monumental war machine in Bad Dream or paints a vivid picture of a supernatural being, as heard in Zombie. The diversity of the songs in Briefly a Zombie make this album one that can be enjoyed from beginning to end without skipping a single track.


Fattback is, indeed, quite RAD.
I got this cd from Professor Cool the other night and have been listening since. I must say that I am more and more impressed with every listen. Contraption is easily the best song. It is so f'ing good. All the songs that I had previously heard live are much better in the studio (with perhaps the exception of No Biscuits which rocks live). My only critiques are.. 1.Many times I hear this '90's jamband sound, which is a sound that has bad connotations (dirty whirling hippies). 2.Blacksmith may be a little too influenced by Ween, but it is still a sweet song. Overall, the songs are very different, but the album is quite cohesive. As a freshman album, I think it is on target. Way to go on being ORIGINAL!!!! I would say it is a B/B+. Kudos my friends. Kudos.
