But enough digressing! We'll get straight down to business. Fat Freddy's Drop is the pride of Wellington, and we just love their fusion of numerous genres to provide a unique and homegrown sound. Muzic.net.nz describes FFD thus:
Fat Freddy’s Drop is first and foremost a live band, dropping the Freddy’s voodoo to all ages and nationalities, and winning Best Live Act at the b-Net NZ Music Awards in 2004.
On stage, Freddy’s fuse skanking urban Pacific roots, soul, dub, jazz and electronica into hypnotic and thunderous grooves. No two Freddy’s gigs are the same as the midnight marauders improvise and jam each song into mystic supernovas of future funk, fakes and freaky sidesteps.
So, without further ado - here's Fat Freddy's Drop with possibly the only New Zealand music video ever to have been shot in a Grey Lynn fish 'n' chip shop, complete with a couple of cameo celebrity appearances rather like bro'Town - yep, it could only be Wandering Eye
