The Fatty Acids: 'Scramble-Pop' From The Good Land
The zany and talented four-member band The Fatty Acids are about to study-up on their Wayne's World lines - as they're about to go on tour, it's a necessity. When asked what kind of reception they receive far outside of Wisconsin, they say people typically quote the classic Wayne's World "Milwaukee: The Good Land" scene with Alice Cooper. Guitarist Matt Pappas says, "If you don't know those lines, people are looking at you like, 'What? You don't know that?'"
Residing in Riverwest, The Fatty Acids have been a prominent fixture on the Milwaukee music scene for six years. You may know them from their attention-grabbing outfits, wacky videos, and eclectic 'Scramble-Pop' sound. They've released three self-produced albums: Stop Berries, Berries, and Berries, Berries (2010), Leftover Monsterface (2011), and most recently, Bolero (2013). In addition, they've put out two split EP's: Fat Fauxmance (2011) and Torrential Zen (2012).
The Fatty Acids are:
- Josh Evert - Keyboard and vocals
- Derek De Vinney - Bass guitar
- Cole Quamme - Drums
- Matt Pappas - Electric guitar
