Preview: Fun Lovin’ Criminals @ Worthing Pavilion Theatre, 12/02/16

This spring the Fun Lovin’ Criminals are releasing their seminal debut Come Find Yourself onto the road in the UK for its 20th birthday. When first released in 1996, the album spent almost the entire year in the charts and provided the soundtrack of the summer as it dovetailed with the rampant Britpop scene of the time.

The forthcoming tour coincides with the 20th anniversary re-release of the album as a three-CD expanded edition, featuring a magnitude of rarities, live recordings and alternative mixes.

Frontman Huey Morgan says: “After 20 years, ‘Come Find Yourself’ will be played live in its entirety for the first time. Our debut album burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted. The music is now part of our collective lexicon and we are very proud to be able to play it live and share our love of diversity which we have always, as a band, championed.”

Effortlessly merging alternative rock and hip hop, Come Find Yourself etched an individual niche into popular culture that has prevented it ageing disgracefully, and hopes to be as much a springboard to success for a new generation as it was in the mid-nineties, propelling the band to two further top 10 charting albums. Hearing the menacing power of the Tarantino referencing hit Scooby Snacks in the context of its original LP is as good an introduction as any to these musical mixologists, who will be seeking to combine nostalgia and new success in a unique celebration of a vibrant and unique record.

Fun Lovin’ Criminals play Worthing Pavilion Theatre on Friday 12th February. Find tickets here.
