Album Review: Fun Lovin' Criminals - 'Classic Fantastic'

Fun Lovin' Criminals - 'Classic Fantastic'

Huey surnamed himself ‘DiFontaine’ when his name was really Morgan; he launched a 6Music funk show that played AC/DC ; FLC once looked cool but they were shit. How does a band with so many broken promises get to release their sixth album in...

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall

It's been a couple of years since the Fun Lovin' Criminals have released anything of interest. Tonight, it would appear that Huey and friends are painfully aware of this as the vast majority of the set is lifted from their first two long-players....

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Bump / Run Daddy Run

With their career in mid-nosedive and only the occasional appearance avec Theakston and Ball on 'The Priory' to remind them that they still exist, the game is seemingly up for da Fun Lovin' Criminals . If any further evidence were required,...

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Loco

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Loco

This time Huey's gotten cocky. He's stopping traffic on a sweltering New York boulevard to plug his new single (and a dubious drink driving subtext) in a beer commercial. He's getting Baywatch bimbettes with floss for swimwear to waggle their...

London Brixton Academy

London Brixton Academy

Unusually for a gig in south London, tonight starts with palm trees, surfers and bikinis. This is Maui Homicide 2000 , Fun Lovin' Criminals' self-starring 20-minute film and a spectacular act of indulgence that swiftly discards the notion...

Fun Lovin' Criminals : Korean bodega

"Korean bodeeega", drawls Huey through half-open eyes, "It's mah favourite". Yes, but your favourite what, Huey? Wake up, for Chrissakes, we're trying to speak to you. Sad, linguistically challenged limeys that we are, we have no idea...

Pick you up around nine, baby. Gonna show you around, and I know you'll like that. Take you to my place, and be cool, real cool. Tell you some things that I know you'll wanna hear. What you talkin' about, baby? You know I love you. But baby,...

Warrington Parr Hall

Warrington Parr Hall

The smooth criminals of slicked-back slink-rap can do no wrong with Warrington's partisan party posse. Led Zep guitar riffs, dapper zoot suits, nudge-nudge references to pharmaceuticals and urban mischief: it all makes sense to this capacity...

100% Colombian

FOR THOSE OF US WHO like to think we are well in touch with our sensitive sides, there nags that one eternal question: why is it that the lady always falls for a bastard? No such thoughts worry Huey. He suits the whole gangster schtick like it was...
