Chewing the Fat with the Fine Young Cannibals

Rob Tannenbaum, Rolling Stone, 20 April 1989

A FEW WEEKS before the release of The Raw and the Cooked, Fine Young Cannibals' new album, Roland Gift and Andy Cox are in New York City, taking a break from their schedule of interviews and photo sessions. They're at a party for David Lynch, the director of Eraserhead and Blue Velvet, in celebration of his painting exhibition. For at least fifteen minutes, on this Sunday afternoon in January, this SoHo gallery is the center of New York's art world.
