— Waifs & Strays
- Label: Equinox Records
- Released: 4 October 2019
An exuberant jazz-funk-folk collective hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Fat-Suit have captured the attention of jazzers, folkies, prog-rockers and ravers alike. The 20-something musicians featured within their ranks make up the backbone of the current Scottish music scene. They embrace a seamless mix of musical styles, with the priority being to evoke maximum joy through energetic live performance.
Waifs & Strays
'Waifs & Strays' is the band's 4th album and follow-up to 2017's Scottish Jazz Album of the Year 'Atlas'. Recorded and filmed live in Drygate Brewery in Glasgow over 4 days, the album features the huge ensemble's signature blend of modern jazz, folk, electronica, rock/pop and everything in between.
The record is the band's most ambitious and expansive to date, as they invite a number of special guests to join the 20-something strong ensemble including Johnny Woodham (Tom Misch, Alfa Mist, Rex Orange County), Davie Dunsmuir (Billy Cobham) and Corrina Hewat (Karine Polwart, Lau).
