Stock up on those Scooby Snacks, the Fun Lovin’ Criminals will be heading to the South West in 2016 to celebrate their 20th anniversary. In association with SW1 Productions, the band will perform to the live arena at the Great Hall in Exeter on Friday, 19th February 2016.
The band whose ability to merge and transcend genres saw them become one of the most unique and exciting groups when they formed in the nineties. Fun Lovin’ Criminals will play their first live shows in years in February 2016 to celebrate and resurrect in all its glory one of the most important albums of 1996, ‘Come Find Yourself’.
Twenty years on this debut release for the group sounds as fresh and vibrant as it did that year, when it spent almost 12 months in the UK chart, becoming a soundtrack for the summer and peaking at No. 7. Huey Morgan, Brian Leiser and Frank Benbini will play the album live and in full for the very first time at venues around the country including this Exeter show.
Their clever releases with catchy lyrics and melodies transport you back to the time, yet they’re ageless and ready for a new audience of fans to fall in love with all over again. A long lasting and unforgettable cocktail of music with a nod to hip hop, rock, blues, jazz, funk and soul; with Huey Morgan’s extensive knowledge and collection of music it’s hardly surprising that this seminal album has such a wide foundation of influence.
“After 20 years, ‘Come Find Yourself’ will be played live in its entirety for the first time,” says Huey Morgan. “Our debut album burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted. The music is now part of our collective lexicon and we are very proud to be able to play it live and share our love of diversity which we have always, as a band, championed.”
