After a monumental 11th birthday party back in October, and a riotous send off with their last ever party at The End in November, Fat! are going back to their Brixton roots for New Year's Eve with an intimate party at Plan B.
The perfect night for anyone sick to the teeth of over-hyped and over-priced New Years Eve parties, Fat! will simply be doing what they do best – inviting a few choice guests who are guaranteed to tear up a dancefloor and throwing them into the mix with a friendly, boisterous, and refreshingly unpretentious crowd.
Headlining is Fat! favourite Micky Slim, a cheeky young upstart from Birmingham who ignited The End's main room last time he played Fat! with his filthy, acid, wonky electro – or as he prefers to describe it, rubadubdubthreesomeinatubstep. Intrigued? You should be.
He'll be joined by Jem Haynes, one half of Precision Cuts, and recently described by Space promoter Mark Broadbent as, "like the bastard son of Bushwacka! and Nic Fanciulli", which although a slightly scary prospect, can surely only be a compliment of the highest order! Any producer who can release on labels as diverse as Simple Records and Renegade Hardware deserves some serious attention – expect the unexpected.
Completing the line up will be Mayo Clinic residents Smiggy & Ficklegruber, and of course the supremely talented Fat! resident Paul “Trouble” Arnold – with more acts still to be announced, whilst the No Way Back DJs, Scott Cooper and guests will be keeping the basement jumping.
To say it's been a tough year for Fat! founder Paul Arnold would be an understatement, but happily he's back on fighting form and has big plans for Fat! in 2009, although he's keeping tight lipped for now…
In the mean time tuck into your mince pies and have a Fat! New Year - we'll see you on the other side!
