Additionally, having recorded the top-20 album, Serfs Up! in Sheffield, Fat White Family  have  recruited Steel City legends Parrot (Crooked Man on DFA Records, All Seeing I, Forgemasters, Jive Turkey)  and Pulp’s own  Jarvis Cocker to remix Feet. Working under their Parrot and Cocker Tooremix guise, the pair have delivered a subtly, slinky South Yorkshire chugger perfect for late nights and early mornings in Attercliffe and beyond. 


Having released their second album, Songs For Our Mothers in January 2016, core-members Lias and Nathan Saoudi relocated to Sheffield and set about writing the album. Joined by co-conspirator Saul Adamczewski and recorded at their own Champzone studios in the Attercliffe area of the city,Serfs Up! was finished in late autumn 2018 with the help of long-time collaborator, Liam D. May and features a guest appearance from Baxter Dury on Tastes Good With The Money.

Serfs Up! is a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental. It invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour, and as such their third album heralds a new day dawning.

Where once they soundtracked a grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tin-foil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E. Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely. Serfs Up! is the product of a band of outlaws reborn. Few but themselves could have forecast it: Fat White Family survived. Fat White Family got wise. Fat White Family got sophisticated.

Serfs Up!, was released on 19th April 2019 on CD (WIGCD401), vinyl (WIGLP401), cassette (WIGMC401) and via digital download (WIG401D).
