2021 marks the 25th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album Come Find Yourself and still the Fun Lovin' Criminals remain one of the coolest bands around. The multi-platinum New York trio have plenty to celebrate but the opportunity to escape the lockdown gloom of the past year and party with fans in Wolverhampton this coming October is bringing a huge smile to the trio.
2021 marks the 25th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album Come Find Yourself, the 20th year since Loco, their highest charting single and the end [we hope] of a horrendous global pandemic for pretty much everybody. Besides, this is the Crims, naturally they will find something to party for.
Fun Lovin’ Criminals burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the euphoric Brit-pop party with unforgettable finesse. Heralded for their generation defining blend of styles and effortless Lower East Side charm, FLC’s refreshing cocktail of rock n’ roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave the Crims a unique timelessness that is still apparent three decades on.
FLC’s debut single ‘Scooby Snacks’, famed for sampling Tarantino movies such as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction launched a career that saw the debut EMI album Come Find Yourself remain in the UK album chart for an astounding two years. FLC performed an infamously raucous set on the legendary Pyramid main stage at Glastonbury ’99 and have been bringing the party to stages worldwide ever since.
2021 also marks the 20th anniversary of Loco, a song that may be remembered for sound-tracking a sun-drenched Miller beer ad in which Huey can be found riffing the songs unmistakably cool, latin-infused guitar lick on the roof of car…in a traffic jam. Loco became the FLC’s highest charting single and likewise the Loco album became a Top 5 album in the UK.
Fun Lovin' Criminals play KK's Steel Mill, Wolverhampton on Friday 22 October 2021. Tickets go on sale on Friday 5 March at kkssteelmill.co.uk
