Fat Freddy’s Drop – Based On A True Story

“an unstoppable steam train on a journey across the deepest and funkiest dub landscape”Martin Morales – Songlines Magazine – Jan/Feb 2005

 “the most delicate and deep dub record of recent times… sounds like UB40 when they were good” Ben Watt on Midnight Marauders (in Dazed & Confused mag March 2005)

 “Fat Freddy’s Drop are a class act… this slab of vinyl will not be leaving my box for quite a while if ever, as the message is so true and the production 1st class. A future classic and a track that would have been championed at NYC’s Body and Soul no doubt.” 5/5  Pathaan – DJ magazine (UK) – review of Hope (MKL remix)


“Truly amazing live show, we love Fat Freddy’s Drop”Judy & Steve, Fabric London


“Fat Freddy’s Drop is a reggae-style group from New Zealand, whose 10” single (Hope) has sat unplayed on my floor for months. Finally checking it out, I discovered an extraordinary epic, which moves from being a gentle lament supported by muted trumpet, into a more intense section with honking tenor sax, before floating away into space. Atnearly ten minutes, I think this is the longest track I have ever played on the radio. A listener called to say it was the most remarkable thing he had heard in a long time”Charlie Gillet –  BBC LONDON


“Fabulous furry freak brothers…the most interesting band in the country…Fat Freddy’s magnificent mongrel of a sound is sufficiently fresh and original that many believe this band offers our biggest chance of international musical success outside the mainstream rock market…” Grant Smithies – Sunday Star Times


“dub cats on acid… the live show sparkles with sublime sonics that reminds you just how powerful performance arts can be… they are really THAT good live…” Richard Bamford – Undercover Magazine (UK)
