about

There‘s no other band having the fusion of Disco and Sixties Punk down pat like this Swiss-based three-piece on their second album “Questions for Honey”. A comparative description wouldn’t do these lads justice, so let’s just say: the Oblivians play Gershon Kingsley’s Über-Hit “Popcorn”, or Yello do a cover version of The Monks. You know what I mean, don’t you? It’s definitely Garage, but they generously left the guitars in Detroit to leave more room for development of the organ, the driving bass, the drum section and the vocals, which latently dither between hysteria and lasciviousness. That’s why the whole thing doesn’t sound like simplistic Garage, rather it’s all about the groove. In detail, it’s a trip through musical history: from 60’s Beat to Soul, from Trash to Pop and Noise, coupled with chilly New Wave beats. This music is best enjoyed hanging around in bad company. It turns even the smallest pad into a smoke-filled red light district dive bar, where beer is only used to wash down hard liquor shots. Minimal-Beat played by existentialists for existentialists. But don’t worry, these cats don’t engage in window-dressing by recycling retro sounds. Instead, Lo Fat Orchestra filtrate the essence of the particular styles and bring them back together – and that’s what makes “Questions for Honey” suspense-packed to the very last note.
