"After a few uneventful days of sweating and coughing alone in his bedroom on the top floor of his father's semi-detached in suburban Cambridge, events took a serious turn for the worse."
So starts 'Ten Thousand Apologies', the new fabricated, reimagined, alternative and embellished (and yet perhaps true) portrait of Fat White Family written by singer and front person Lias Saoudi and novelist and poet Adelle Stripe.
We were sold at "a mutant hybrid of Jean Genet, the Dadaists and Mark E. Smith" that forms part of the blurb and by the fact that Adelle's previous work, 'Black Teeth', was spectacular, that Fat White Family are flippin' aces and that White Rabbit consistently put out the best music books to be found on our shelves.
