Fun Lovin' Criminals
They are, still, the world’s finest and only purveyors of cinematic hip hop, rock n’roll, blues-jazz and latino soul vibes.
The cousins from New York who chronicled life in their native city in the mid-late 1990s, bringing something different to an era marked by Britpop, their breakthrough album Come Find Yourself meshed musical styles from gangster-rock to lounge music and funk.
Like The Killers and Kings of Leon, it was the UK who loved them, and their vibrant satirical, comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis, first.
And the band loved us back, all of them now living in the UK and continuing to bless the nation with regular live shows.
