Chicot the Hippo

Chicot – Fat Out Of Hell

 

Epic sounding, bombastic, over blown, and as exhilarating as a self destructive teenage meltdown. Fat Out of Hell defies criticism as its very weaknesses of tasteless gross excess become its virtues.

 

Crank up the volume and get a natural adrenalin rush as Chicot takes pop music screaming right over the cliff of good taste at full throttle.

 

This album was rumored to be the death knell for the Mound of Sound sound, as apparently when William Inspector heard this record for the first time he took a hammer to his mixing desk and trashed his volume knobs. (...For that alone Music thanks you)
