[Anna-Bet Bester] We recently broke the news that the newest offering from P.H.Fat, an EP entitled 'You are going to Die', will be made available for free download through their website www.phfat.co.za. Good news - the day has come and, as good as their word, the tunes are waiting to be downloaded right this second.
[Anna-Bet Bester] Ready or not, here they come - Smooth Mike, Disco Izrael and Narch just finished work on a highly anticipated second album and P.H.Fat fans can look forward to series of high octane live events over the next two months, starting with what is set to be a scorcher of a performance at tomorrow night's UCT RAG 7's Party.
[Anna-Bet Bester] Following the success of their debut album "Dinosaur Blood" on 11 February 2011 on acclaimed US label Muti Music, P.H.FAT has decided to break the traditional mould of a record label financed release; and will launch their 5 track EP for FREE and independently through their website www.phfat.co.za on 20 February 2012.
[Anna-Bet Bester] Excellent news for all chronic FOMO-sufferers: there will be no need to run around between stages at the 2012 Up The Creek together with Bacardi festival. The organisers have once again decided to do away with the conventional anxiety-inducing multiple stage festival lineup in favour of a single-file approach that allows revellers to enjoy one performance without fear of losing out on another. Joy!
[Anna-Bet Bester] Waiting sucks, but waiting in queues tends to suck even more. In fact, queues apparently suck so much that actual scientific studies have been done to determine just how badly it sucks, exactly why it sucks and which variables have an impact of the level of suckishness experienced in any given queue. I kid you not, check it out here.
[Anna-Bet Bester] So, according to a whole bunch of learned folks who have done a fair amount of study into the science of floating, this is what happens when a human being floats in water: muscle soreness and tension is relieved, lactic acid dissolved, the excretion of cortisol (the anxiety hormone) repressed and a nice healthy dose of endorphins released into the bloodstream.
[Anna-Bet Bester] January is a stupid month. The holidays are over; both your pants and your budget are a little tighter than usual and then those smug US assholes go and drop their Coachella lineup like a bomb and you can only hang your head in disappointment at your own Third World-ness.
