We’d like to extend our warm wishes to Fartbarf on their grand adventure to the UK. May Scotland greet you with more warmth than a baby’s dirty diaper. May they treat you better than they brew beer. May you rock their faces off harder than the granite face of El Capitan. May they dance more tirelessly than a wolf in heat searching for a mate. May they love you more than whores loved the cowboys. May they remember you longer than the world remembered the white-skinned peoples of ancient Caucasus (yeah, the original Caucasians). Just kick some ass, we’re with ya in dance spirit.
One of DHR’s favorite bands, Fartbarf, is leaving behind the paradisical beaches of Southern California’s Riviera to weather the temperamental UK summer and freak out some Scots. They depart this week to perform at the goNorth Festival 2010 and the Rockness. This is a big deal, with some big names appearing, i.e., The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Fatboy Slim, Blondie, Pendulum, and a butt-load of others. Fartbarf doesn’t even have an EP out yet and they’ve been asked to do these shows. It’s totally exciting and must be a little nerve racking. Again, best of luck, best wishes; we’re rooting for you and wish we were there. Cheers!
If you’re a sorry wanker like we are and won’t be able to make it all the way to Scotland, then maybe this classic Fartbarf video will cheer you up.
