Family members Fodder was less a music group when compared to a never-ending collective of music artists messing with tapes within the basement of the London even. Begun in 1979 by Alig Pearce, a label known as Small Question released their initial 7″ if they still passed the name Te Deum. (Oddly enough, another two singles released concurrently with the label had been the first Treat one and Bauhaus’ “Bela Lugosi’s Deceased.”) The music group was led by unusual splices of tape, dub results, and Dominique Levillain’s chanteuse vocals. Inspired by Syd Barrett, the Kinks, which Heat, Pearce transferred his compositions from psychedelics to drones to proto-electronic music filled with cut-up area recordings. The music group thought themselves to become very serious music artists however the music assumes a light surroundings because of the splicing and laughter throughout. The group toured 3 x between 1981 and 1982. In 1983, Pearce lent a number of the band’s record progress money off their brand-new label, Fresh, to invest in another project’s tour. The causing album, All Designs, came out of the diminished money and was scratchy, sick prepared, and home-recorded. It marketed no more than 100 copies when released. Pearce continued to be always a professional accordionist and in 1989 reformed Family members Fodder with Levillain, Hobbs, and Wilson. He also travels beneath the name Johnny Individual. Using the 1999 reissue by Dark Dearest Cloud, Family members Fodder has discovered a new market with avant and brand-new wave enthusiasts.
