El Fatso

El Fatso sounds like a bromance between Joshua Homme and The Big Lebowski: a mix of acapulco-shirts, motoroil and white russians.  The Rotterdam based band describes their style as Rock ‘n’ Roffa: bawdy, intelligent and sexy. They get their inspiration from the work of QotSA, Arctic Monkeys and Millionaire. Music for a nighttime drive on the highway: speeding tickets guaranteed.

Anna Friele – Nobel Award

”El Fatso immediately started with a wonderfully thick (or Fatso) sound that acutely ‘nodded’ the heads in the audience. It is not surprising that they won the audience award earlier at the Eendracht Festival and their first single was number 1 on Reddit for a while. But not only the hard dirty music, also the stage presence of the gentlemen was infectious; from the matching Hawaii shirts to the smooth head movements of the bass guitarist and the drummer who managed to unleash his own dreadlocks mid-set. A wonderful performance that created a great vibe.”

Florence Villeneuve – 3voor12

After a lot of funny promotion on social media, El Fatso gave a sold-out release party in Roodkapje, Rotterdam. El Fatso makes cleverly put together rock music. Rough, mysterious, sexy yet so catchy! You can easily keep moving throughout the set. The mainly low vocals of Tom Schreuder regularly have something dark. For a Dutchman, his accent sounds very American. A little later in the set, Juriaan van der Graaf makes great use of his cowbell for ‘Thirsty’. During ‘King Louie’ El Fatso gets more and more love and energy from the exuberant audience: a moshpit and attempted crowd surfing. El Fatso can be absolutely proud of their release party.”
