Artist: FAMILY FODDER
Title: Just Love Songs
Format: LP
Label: Staubgold
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"A limited vinyl-only collection of 11 love songs by Family Fodder that have never before been released on vinyl. Alig Fodder says: "We collected all the love songs together without all the annoying instrumentals, dubs and solos. Lou Reed once sang: No kinds of love are better than others. I think he meant something else. The kinds of love here include: the love for a child, nostalgic love and imaginary journeys, love renewed and shared, love of animals, love of music, nostalgia, love in loss and memory, love in kinship across generations, poetic and physical loving, love of the unknown or unfamiliar and the desperate love of needing." Different versions of these songs are available on the albums Classical Music (2010) and Variety (2013) as CDs or digital downloads from the state51 Conspiracy label. Meanwhile, the band (alive and well -- but smelling funny after all these years) prepare for their second European tour, and are writing new material for the next album -- working title: Rough Mix." - Staubgold.

Title: Monkey Banana Kitchen
Format: LP
Label: Staubgold
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Staubgold proudly presents the legendary first album from 1980 by UK underground heroes Family Fodder, for the first time reissued on vinyl. Guest musicians include This Heats Charles Bullen on drums, guitar, vocals, percussion and viola. Wire magazine listed Monkey Banana Kitchen among their "100 Records That Set the World on Fire (While No One Was Listening)" and wrote: "A loose collection of friends and, more often than not, wanderers, Family Fodder reached their apex (or at least one of them) with Monkey Banana Kitchen. The music took the ferocity of contemporaneous British punk and scaled it way back. They also eschewed the giant pop hook, replacing it with the hoop jumping of songs in three languages, instruments played for only four seconds, harmonic call-and-response motifs and opaque but symbolic political lyrics. Multiple reprises of phrases and fragments result in a much more subtle and effective memory-tickle. I cant count how many instruments finally made it onto the album, though piano (providing much of the rhythm), melodica, sax, synth and cowbell dominate. Their integrated eclecticism is actually layer after thin layer of dub, jazz and New Wave -- peering down into this music, you detect traces of structural complexity, and the pop thats there blurs. Lesson #537 from Fodder members: participate only when absolutely necessary -- knowing when to pare down makes it easier to transcend." -Staubgold.

Title: Sunday Girls (Directors Cut)
Format: CD
Label: Staubgold
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"The legendary first 12" EP by UK underground heroes Family Fodder, originally released in 1979, is now reissued for the first time. Sunday Girls (Directors Cut) is a lovingly assembled full-length album compilation featuring the complete Sunday Girls EP, the debut Family Fodder 7" Playing Golf (With My Flesh Crawling)/My Baby Takes Valium (1979), the Debbie Harrry/A “Version” 7" from 1980, the 7" A-side "Warm" (1980), and two tracks from the rare Te Deum 12" (1979) by Alig Fodders pre-Fodder project Frank Sumatra. Family Fodder was originally formed in 1979 by Alig Pearce, with a cast of thousands joining over the ensuing three decades. They emerged from the melting-pot of 70s/80s London alongside This Heat, The Flying Lizards, The Pop Group, The Slits, and many others. The original formula consisted of psychedelic and new wave influences, incisive songwriting, improvisation, experimentation, and far-out dub mixing. They always managed to evade major exposure, but influenced generations of bands on five continents. Family Fodder was often more at home in the studio than on stage, but completed several European tours as well as cherished performances in their native London. The group released a series of compelling (now collectable) singles and albums between 1979 and 1983. Described as "entertaining idiosyncratic experimentalism with pop sensibilities," Family Fodder appear on the famous Nurse With Wound list, and were best known for indie-chart hits such as "Debbie Harry," "Playing Golf (With My Flesh Crawling)," and "Savoir Faire." More recently, Family Fodder songs have been covered by Zion Train and Unrest, and theyve been hailed as "unsung heroes" in The Wire." - Staubgold.
