Ladies and gentlemen, aliens, robots and giant mechanical babies, we would like to introducethe third album by the incredible Fingathing. A few years ago, a new act with a unique concept and an amazing sound began to be spokenabout by a few in-the-know people. These people had been privy to early recordings, or had been lucky enough to attend early performances by a band that has rightfully established itself as one of the most exciting duos in the country, and certainly the only one of it's kind in the world. One of the few acts to create a concept as daring and unique as theirs, and then prove it a lasting formula with constantly innovative results, Peter Parker and Sneaky have proven their sound and skill over two full-length releases. Now, amongst tales of space adventure, big bangs and strange characters, they return withFingathing and The Big Red Nebula Band, an album which undoubtedly features their best work to date. The dynamic duo of far-flung funk and crunching avant hip-hop have become known for thinking up concepts that equal their music in terms of sheer creativity and scope, and this album is no exception. Having faked their own deaths at the end of the last LP, the pair have been spat intospace in metal coffins, and we join them as they hurtle towards the sun. By chance, the coffins are sucked into a new space-time continuum known as the Red Nebula,and so an epic adventure through reanimation, giant robots and strange planets begins. Most importantly, Peter and Sneaky get to record with The Big Red Nebula Band, and bring homesome astounding results. Fear not concept haters, for the music here stands taller on its own than the gigantic droid you'll meet on 'Reanimo.' The Big Red Nebula Band is a blistering album of powerful breaks, glitchy funk, electronics,cuts and melody. The grooves grip tighter than a black hole, the drums smack the cheeks like an asteroid rain-storm, and the bass rumbles and hums like an imploding star. If whiffy similes aren't your thing, we would only say that this is the album that Fingathing have always had it in them to make. Capturing the energy of their live shows, they've harnessed their hunger and passion and created an album that does what albums are supposed to, take the listener somewhere far away over a sequence of tracks that fit together as a body, yet explore a huge variety of emotions and moods. The concept is Fingathing's story, but on listening, you'll rapidly find yourself day-dreaming yourown, and it'll have the best soundtrack you can imagine.
