Fun Lovin’ Criminals mark new album with tour

New York trio Fun Lovin’ Criminals are set to headline UK and European tour to celebrate the release of their new album Another Mimosa. 

The group burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the Brit-pop party with a blend of styles and Lower East Side charm.

FLC’s mix of rock n’ roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave them a timeless quality 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 over two years. 

FLC performed an infamously raucous set on the legendary Pyramid main stage at Glastonbury ’99 and remain a mainstay on the festival circuit in UK and Europe.

They returned to the studio this year with Grammy award winning engineer Tim Latham to make Another Mimosa, their first studio album since 2010. 

The album is due for release on January 18 and is a variation on the theme of the 1999 album ‘Mimosa’, which became a cult classic with Crims fans for featuring clever re-imaginings of classic covers and an impromptu guest appearance from Ian McCulloch from Echo & the Bunnymen.

Fun Lovin’ Criminals will be playing live at The Mill in Birmingham on January 31.
