Fat White Family: Pictures for Our Mothers

UK punk band Fat White Family are the last of a dying breed; a rock n’ roll group so loud, vulgar and iconoclastic they cannot be ignored. They’ve soiled the stages of Glastonbury and sullied the airwaves of the late David Letterman Show. They’ve played dumps, dives and shitholes the world over and they’ve done it with searing wit, putrescent style and the fatalistic passion of heretic soldiers on a suicide mission.

The photographs in this book were made across the US and UK over the period 2015-18.

ADVANCE PRAISE

"Who let these freaks off their leashes to torture our ears with their musical gunk? This stuff sticks to craniums like grease, oil, rust and dirt collecting on automobile engines. The FWF can hang you by your feet and their tunes will still not fall out of your skull. Some wiseguy once said that a photograph is worth a couple of dozen sentences and there's not enough adjectives to describe what's going on in this book........AND THAT'S A GREAT SCENARIO! These pics are TOTALLY bitchen'!"
— Keith Morris (singer - Black Flag, Circle Jerks, OFF!)

“Deep in the Petri dish something stirred . . . strange bacteria harnessed by Fat white alchemy escaped the lab. Things will never be the same now their foul mouthed eulogies and sordid behaviour have contaminated the young and the wise alike with their beautiful Rock n Roll. This book makes me wanna go on a yoga retreat.”
— Larry Love (Alabama 3)

“Fat Whites continue to be the most influential U.K. guitar band in the last ten years. It’s just that most people don’t know that yet.”
— Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods)

“As a mother myself, I would like to bend these bad, bad boys over my knee and give them all a well-deserved spanking.”
— Penelope Spheeris (Wayne's World, Decline of Western Civilization documentary series, et al):

"The new book starts with photographs of rippling, angular guitar shots, bare chests, and bizarre colors that fill the pages with images screaming, stirring unbridled crazy sound. But, it is in part two where it seems the road takes its toll with photographs in grim bars, deadbeat motels and sensitive portraits unfurling reflection between gigs. The book's flow brings the viewer into a rattling, wild profoundness that recalls the Chelsea Hotel mob shows of the 1970's."
— Linda Troeller is an award-winning photographer acclaimed for her exhibitions about living at the legendary Hotel Chelsea. Books include Healing Waters (Aperture), Erotic Lives of Women (Scalo), Living in the Chelsea Hotel (Schiffer), Spa Journeys (powerHouse Books) and Orgasm: Photographs and Interviews (Daylight).

"I LOVE these photos!!! Every picture tells a story, don't it? They recall the memories I have of hanging out with those Fat Whites, and every one is fond."
— Cynthia ‘Plaster Caster’ (she introduces the US section of the book).

"Great fun!"
— Brad Elterman has photographed numerous bands and artists since the 1970s including Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Sex Pistols, Runaways, The Who, ABBA, Blondie, Michael Jackson, Ramones, Madonna, Iggy Pop, etc. His work has appeared in Creem, Rolling Stone, New York Post, NME, Melody Maker, National Enquirer et al.
