Fat White Haircut

Posted On By David Waywell

To mark the occasion of my giving myself a proper Fat White Family haircut (pictures will not be provided) as well as celebrating my having spent the afternoon drawing (a picture will be provided once I finish it), I thought I’d spread the word on this lesser-known band. I’d say underrated too but they’re fairly highly rated, just rarely seen on TV. They’re also a bit of an acquired taste. They almost never pick a path that directs them towards the mainstream, including the serious drug habits of various members of the band and the lead singer’s tendency to remove his clothes at any opportunity. Their live concerts apparently get quite… how shall I say… hedonistic. Some say their albums aren’t as good as their live performances. I don’t know about that. They’ve made some of my favourite tracks of the past few years. They’re very often my go-to drawing music.

Anyway, if you’ve never heard of them, then I recommend that you start with the following. The first track is pretty disturbing but fairly safe for work. The other three, less so, especially “Touch the Leather”. Unless you work as a proctologist by day, it might well put your off your supper. It does, however, have a fabulous Serge Gainsbourg vibe. You have been warned.

Why Dunciad.com?

It’s a cool domain name and it was available. Yes, I know. Available. Crazy, isn’t it?

Really?

Yes. It also helps that it’s also my favourite satire written by Alexander Pope, one of the most metrically pure English poets who also knew his way around a crude insult or two. If you’ve not read it, you should give it a try.

So this is satire, right?

Can’t deny it. There will be some. But it’s also an experiment in writing and drawing, giving work away for free in order to see how many people are willing to support a writer doing his thing. It’s the weird stuff that I wouldn’t get published elsewhere in this word of diminishing demands and cookie-cutter tastes.
