The Fatback Band: Fatbacks Hit Back

Robin Katz, Black Echoes, 21 February 1976

SOMEONE BLEW the whistle on the Fatback band this week. "The whole show was disappointing" came the critical opinion. "They basically play the same riff a hundred times over. It was 'blow your whistle' stuff all over again. It seems that as soon as something dies out in America, the people here catch on to it. The Fatback Band came here to peddle something they know they couldn't sell at home."
