Fatal Jamz - Coverboy Out September 30th Via Lolipop Records and Burger Records- Float In A Glitter Pop Universe
If Fatal Jamz were a solar system it's planets would surely be multicolored and bright and it's main life giving sun would be made of pure glitter. The center of this glam universe would be Marion Belle. The first time I heard his provocative vocals was on the the title track of 17 and Hung and I immediately flashed on a dozen things at once. Within the tropical proto punk sway you could feel dashes of Bowie and Marc Bolan and on the fringes of the sound I thought of Syd Barrett too. The song From The Cradle To The Grave tossed on other iconic textures in a kind of Cure and The Smiths way on top of it all. The songs on 17 and Hung were recorded over a long span from 2007 to 2015.
Fatal Jamz full length recorded over a 3 year span is do to drop via Lolipop Records and Burger Records (on cassette) on Friday (September 30th). Listen to the title track Coverboy a song on roller skates amidst beams of disco light and the wistful 70's-ish Euro pop toned Jean Paul Gaultier.
