So I start a revolution from my bed
The story of Casio Fatso began early 2012 when the singer/guitarist SIR called his long time friend to start a band. The duo set up an audition to find more people to jam with and in the end settled on a magic formula that has been going strong since 2013. singer/guitarist SIR, the drummer Helgi, the bass machine Hjörtur, and guitarist Dolli. Casio Fatso plays energetic ‘Modnine’ rock (read: modern 90s rock) with strong roots in the grunge, college and alternative, artie rock, but with a modern twist. the quartet found its inspiration: The Pixies, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins. Or think distorted guitars, contrasting song dynamics with apathic or angst-filled lyrics.
For a while I thought the bad boys of Jakobínarína were back on track. Now and then I hear British rock influences as well. Highlights of the album are the songs “Satellite”, “Sebas”, and the title track.
“Controlling the world from my bed” is a fine, descent, well-produced debut album, especially if you are into grungy guitars with a 90s feel. The singer is on top during the fantastic downtempo parts of the songs.
