Various Fat! Is 5
- Words: Paul Sullivan
- Label: Fat!
Paul Arnold's weekly Chew The Fat event in Brixton's Bug Bar is one of the UK's original breakbeat institutions. Anyone who's anyone in the British breaks scene has passed through its famously cavernous interior at some point. This anniversary selection tastefully sidesteps being an obvious collection of anthems, and instead concentrates on the more eclectic, funky vibe that Fat! is known for. Solid acts like The Apollo Kids, Peacemaker, Hedrock Valley Beats, Jef Dam and Vandalz Inc provide the expected peaks and troughs, creating an honest and generally infectious profile of the club.
