Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Cork School Of Music

The multi platinum funk soul brothers, with 4 Top 10 albums to their name, return for the first time in five years, “Classic Fantastic” with the first classic party album of the decade, featuring collaborations with Roots Manuva and Paul Kaye.

Huey, Fast and Frank have been officially missing in action for 5 years caught up in an acrimonious legal battle with their first manager who they fired in 2003. Classic Fantastic bursts out of that gloom like a glorious sunrise shooting infinite rays over a range of shadowy mountains, as spectacularly life-affirming as the last five years have been creatively death-defying.

A party album built in a psychological bunker; it’s a phenomenal testament to the power of unbound optimism.
Huey says: “You have to go through hell to get to heaven and now we’re finally out from under a lot of our problems, it’s a brand new day. So let’s go out and do what we love to do.”
