ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The seeds for Frikus and the Hooligans were sown while John Frikus Welch, Jonny Jyemo, and Matt Wasowski were on the road with the 8 piece Busta-music dance band Jyemo and the Extended Family. It was here where Frikus wrote half of the Music for his debut solo record "Good Thing". The merry trio, as well as Frikus' cousin and long time collaborator Kevin Welch began performing and recording tracks in 2006. Around that time, Frikus met with recording artist and studio wiz Mohammed Alidu. He joined Alidu's band, the Bizung Family, recorded tracks for the critically acclaimed "Land of Fire" album, and toured in the US and Africa. Mohammed also began performing with Frikus' band, freshly named the Hooligans after the group's enthusiasm for the worlds beautiful game. In 2008, Alidu agreed to begin engineering the Hooligan's record. The Bizung Family kept Frikus busy with a hectic touring and recording schedule, so production on the Hooligan's record was put on the back-burner for a couple of years. Of course, fans of Frikus and the Hooligans were still clamoring for an album, so Frikus got back to work in the studio and began putting together tracks, mixing, and putting on the finishing touches. "Good Thing" is the result.
