Episode 33: Fassine

In Episode 33, Tom chats with Sarah, James, and Laurie of the London based trio, Fassine! The band is coming off an eventful 2017, as they recently appeared in the highly anticipated XTC documentary, "This Is Pop," and released a critically acclaimed new record entitled "Gourami."  Listen in to hear about their latest record, their plans for 2018 (they're in the process of writing a complete different sounding record), and four live tracks recorded at Battery Studios.  Like what you hear? You can get your hands on these live tracks FOR FREE by signing up for Fassine's mailing list at http://www.fassine.com.  Get that VIP treatment!

We also touched on a variety of XTC related topics, including Fassine's stellar contribution to the documentary, XTC's influence on the band's ethos and sound, and the band's legacy in the states and the U.K.  Although we spoke via Skype, an episode of Look At My Records would not be complete without some picks! So, each of us picked our personal favorite XTC song for you to enjoy.  I threw in a Colin Moulding jam for good measure.

Oh and great news - "This Is Pop" will be airing on Showtime Networks on Thursday January 11, 2018! It'll be available on demand immediately thereafter.  Mark your calendars!
