Album Notes
If you ain’t Phat, you ain’t nothin’!

Phat Fred are hard-hitting deep phunk in the tradition of early New Mastersounds – but with a Grant Green twist. “Don’t Spoil The Soup!” is the group’s explosive debut, and Hammondbeat is proud to bring it to all of you phabulous adoring fans and soon-to-be phantastic adoring fans!

Dave Wilkinson (guitar, vocals) and Caspar St. Charles (drums, vocals) form the core of Phat Fred. The two have played together for several years in the jazz outfit Fast 3 (One Note Records, UK) with Phil Wilkinson (brother to Dave) on organ. When Phil took a personal break, Wilkinson and St. Charles took their music in a phantastically philthy direction. Adding the “funkiest bass player since Bootsy Collins”, Tito Bonacera and the “hardest working organist this side of the other side”, Arecio Smith; Phat Fred was complete and ready to phunk the world.

Phat Fred phuse the deep phunk and groove elements of The New Mastersounds with classic jazz sounds of the collaborations between Grant Green and Larry Young. Throw in a dash of sarcastically biting lyrical humor, and you’ve got the sonic stew that is Phat Fred.

Standout slices of phunk include “Stay On The Groove”, “Yu Nou Rili”, “Get Downg”, and “Stop Your Jive”.

Phat is beautiful! And these guys are the phattest!

Coming in April: Phat Fred Live In Denmark [45]. Featuring 2 exclusive tracks including Memphis Train.

Coming soon: Phat Fred Live In Denmark [DIGITAL]. Featuring 8 more songs including live versions of 5 fan faves and 3 brand new songs.

Top draw funk.
I'm a big fan of the Wilkinson brother's work and in Phat Fred, big brother Dave get's to show his funky side. These guys don't seem to concerned about following fasions and like to throw a whole lot of influences into the mix. I see a lot of New mastersounds references when reading about PF, but I can't see it myself. Phat Fred have a much wider range of sounds under their belts and seem more than capable of doing justice to Meters style grooves, Zappa style madness, Funkadelic booty shaking, Jazz, Blues, Rock and anything else in between. Check them out!
