Snafu Third Birthday Weekender Presents Crazy P (Live)

Recommended Posts

It's our third birthday and we are celebrating in style with a weekend so full of music to make you jig and pop that we reckon you're going to be off work 'til Wednesday! The weekend end with a celebration in true Fu Fu style with the amazing live exploits of Crazy P. The 5-piece were a firm crowd favourite when they played their funk, disco and house fusion with us in March, and after playing the summer festival circuit (Glastonbury, Big Chill, Bestival) we welcome the global kranksters for our special day!

Crazy p...based in Nottingham, formally Crazy Penis was started way way back in 1996 by Chris Todd and Jim Baron. Sharing a love of all things soulful and funky the pair attracted the attention of Paperecordings, Manchester, where they released their debut single "Summer Bummer", to high acclaim...The album "a Nice Hot Bath With...." followed, which put the Penis sound firmly on the map. It was prime time for some vocal action so for their next single release the boys dragged local socialite Danielle Moore into the studio, luckily she could sing and low and behold "You Started Something" was unleashed. "The Wicked is Music" album followed, a far more ambitious outing than the first, featuring 4 vocals tracks with Danielle and much more "live" twiddling and playing. Requests for live shows followed so more personnel were drafted in..Tim Davis (bass, with plenty of Penis experience having already contributed towards the first 2 albums), Mav (percussion, the cream resident had also performed on the last album).

As a five piece the band started making a bit of a name for themselves. With the release of "The Wicked.." in Australia, things really started hotting up in true Ozzy fashion. After plenty of radio play the 5 piece went out there to tour and had the pleasure of playing infront of 1500 fans in sydney. Australia has become a bit of a second home for the band as they've been going out every year ever since. A change of label was to come, as sadly Paperecording was winding down buisness, to Shiva records. "24 hour phsycadellic Freekout" was the first release. The album featured 6 new tracks and 4 Crazy Penis remixes. A new member - Mat Klose on drums, a friend of Chris' from his college days, was enlisted and work began on the next "true" artist album "A Night On Earth". This album saw a name change (the "enis" was lobbed of in favour of a more asexual Crazy P) and developed the live sound that the band had been cultivating after a few years of gigging. The album features a quite a few session performances from local Nottingham musicians as well as clasic electronic outings such as "Lady T" (featuring Rachael Foster) and "life's My Friend" (featuring Tim Davis on vocals). 2005 was a big year for the guys as they landed a support slot with Faithless on the UK tour in November/December and stood them in good stead for 2006 with has had them gigging back in Oz and all over the UK and Ireland. They also did a half hour session on Radio1 on Pete Tongs show, at the Maida Vale studios. the early part of 2007 has seen the band in the studio completing their forthcoming, as yet untitled album. it's the first project they have written and recorded as a live band.
