Album artwork for Unhappy Fly by Unhappy Fly

Rough Trade are the only place in the UK with the Red and White Splatter vinyl and Bonus Lathe Cut 7". Avant-pop masterpiece debut featuring members of PiL, 101ers, The Homosexuals etc. Dudanski and Xentos have joined with vocalist / radio artist Sarah Washington and sax blower John Glyn for their latest project. Four years of recording in and around Granada and UK using locations ranging from abandoned soft drinks factories to gin-slugging auntie’s living rooms have resulted in this Unhappy Fly collection: a syncopated soundscape of para-reductive pop based on Xentos’ valorised rococo productions allied with Dudanski’s daedalian drums. Featuring a sizeable crew of musical collaborators, and drawing on Washington’s curlicued harmonies and John Glyn’s multiple saxes, it is a music that invites slippery categorisation. Unhappy Fly draw on a deracinated studio experience combined with impulsive tune-smithing to create an album that scoops up the noisy dogmas of the past and relocates them to the far side of the 5th dimension.
