Fat White Family have baked themselves a nice new independent label, and its name is Without Consent. The band, who signed with Domino’s publishing sideline in April, have done a deal with the [PIAS] Cooperative, who’ll do distribution and marketing for Without Consent over the whole world, bar North America.

Besides a new TBA Fat Whites single, and a nascent LP (which will trail last year’s ‘Champagne Holocaust’), the label is also set to release material by other artists, and also reissue some old blues tracks.

[PIAS] man Craig Caukill said: “Fat White Family are a hugely exciting proposition, the band have amazing potential and a clear artistic vision for the label – we’re delighted to be working with them”.

Then FWF manager Stuart Green said this: “The band attracted a lot of interest from labels both big and small over the last few months but when I met with Craig Caukill and was asked if the band would like their own label this became the obvious solution”.

Green added: “It means the band retain their independence and are in control of their own destiny. This is something I have always sought for every artist I have worked with and consider this to be the most exciting deal I have ever been involved in”.
