Fat Albert - Living In Workington
It's a little like groundhog day today on here, just like yesterday I'm showcasing a band from Cumbria that have a new album out and to tie things even closer together they played the same all dayer as The Scumbrians that I got to a couple of months back.
Fat Albert are from Workington and line up with Jen (vocals/guitar), Barry McGlasson (drums/backing vocals) and Dave Carr (bass). They formed in 2008 and list amongst their influences the likes of U.K. Subs, Cocksparrer, Toy Dolls, Dropkick Murphys and Cockney Rejects.
Their debut release was 2010's Tales Of A Two Pint Rambo ep though numerous line up changes plus the tragic death of drummer Simon in a road accident meant it wasn't until 2013 that their debut album, Useless Generation, came out. In 2015 they released the Just Like A Disease ep and now they're back with new album, Stand Strong.
Solid, working class punk that's both rocking and catchy, this is Living In Workington.....
