EJL on The Yummy Fur, feat. Members of Franz Ferdinand!

Written by

Scottish cult legends The Yummy Fur will be playing at The Echo THIS Sunday, Jan 17 at 10pm. Here is DJ Eric J Lawrence’s convincing statement on why you should go — even though it’s a school night.

“The Yummy Fur were a Scottish band from the 90’s who, despite relative obscurity, have a cult following and no small influence on some of today’s bands.  In fact, members of Franz Ferdinand, Alex Kapranos & Paul Thomson, counted themselves as members at one point or another. They broke up a decade ago, and a couple of the main members formed the similar-sounding group 1990s, but the fates have conspired to bring them back together as The Yummy Fur for a very brief US tour, including a stop at the Echo here in Los Angeles this Sunday night.

I’m so excited to see them that I am taking the week off of my Sunday night radio show, something I am loath to do, but I could not miss what is sure to be one of the most memorable concerts of 2010. See you there!”
