The good ship Rough Trade Books have published an exclusive new edition, Sweating Tears with Fat White Family. It is a pamphlet that I have worked on alongside Lisa Cradduck (my long-term collaborator and partner-in-crime) and together we have created this beautifully sordid publication. It forms part of the “the naughty series”, and there will be a launch event at The Social in London on Weds 2nd October.
Here’s the official blurb. You can order direct from Rough Trade Books. They are now available in galleries and bookshops across the UK, US and Europe, including Rough Trade stores. Check the full list of stockists here.
“A revealing examination of the dysfunctional songwriting partnership at the heart of one of Britain’s most unpredictable and controversial contemporary rock ’n’ roll bands, Sweating Tears with Fat White Family features candid interviews by author Adelle Stripe with Fat White Family singer Lias Saoudi and guitarist Saul Adamczewski. From childhood traumas to adult squalor and critical success, it is a tale of bitterness, humour, excess, cruelty, and the vile affections that bind this exceptional pairing on their continued Orphean descent into the underworld.
This exclusive edition features demonic engravings by printmaker Lisa Cradduck, inspired by Berber folklore and the grotesque 16th century drolleries of Richard Breton…”
