Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ infectious blend of cinematic hip-hop, rock ‘n’ roll, blues-jazz , latin-soul burst onto the New York music scene in 1996 with the release of the worldwide multi-platinum debut album ‘Come Find Yourself’ on EMI Records. Their debut single ‘Scooby Snacks’, famed for sampling Tarantino movies such as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, spent 17 weeks on the Billboard chart, quickly achieving gold status in the US.
The band became an international hit, settling down in the UK, where their multi-platinum debut album ‘Come Find Yourself’ spent an incredible two years in the UK album chart. FLC performed an infamously raucous set on the famous Pyramid main stage at Glastonbury ’99 and the rest - as they say - is history.
Fun Lovin’ Criminals have released 6 studio albums, 2 cover albums, 1 triple live album and various best of’s. They are putting the finishing touches on their 7th studio album to be released early 2023 to coincide with a world tour.
FLC are Europe’s best-loved “cousins from New York”, whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Saville Row suits who, through comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis via music, drugs, crime and existential ennui, launched a career in music.
The bands current lineup -
Brian Fast Leiser on lead vocals, bass, keys, horns, harp and programming.
Frank Benbini on drums, percussion and vocals.
Naim Cortazzi on guitar and vocals.
