It's all about the music - if you like it riff-laden, soulful and with content that will make you take notice - and not just 3 min pop ditties - then The Fecker
The Feckers was the brainchild of songwriters/recording artists Chris Szkup and Richard Anderson. Over the years they had compiled a list of songs that they had stashed away in the archives regrettably (or not so much now) those songs never got to see the light of day in a finished format. Chris had just released his debut solo album Pieces Of Eternity (which you can purchase and read all about here ) and he was working out what he wanted to do next recording wise. So he approached Richard with the idea that they might have another look at their old songs, maybe they could do something with them??? but what??? With the help of old friends and new The Feckers was born and thus the sessions for Itd Be Rude Not To began. Re-visiting old demo versions (and in some cases some were pretty hairy) Chris managed to get an idea for how he could go about bring each song into how they would have sounded had they old just been written this is called Feckerisation (and in some cases this meant taking some pretty hairy old acoustic versions and really giving it the old turn it all the way to 13!). It soon became apparent that some of them crusty old cassettes that had been sitting around gathering dust had in fact contained some gems, which is just as well as the boys didnt really want to be delving into production with shite songs. The next step was to work out who was actually going to record the tunesso a hitlist of people that Chris and Richard would most like to work with at that point in time was put together (a realistic one obviously) a few people were scoped out, and not so strangely most said YES to taking part. Thus the better part of 2010-2012 have been spent working on what will be the debut (and subsequently not the last) The Feckers release..which has been set up to tell you a few bits and pieces about
