Legendary New London, CT trio the CONDO FUCKS returned to the stage last March after a long absence from the tri-state area’s concert circuit, and the results of a secretive Hoboken rehearsal recording session 35 is being released in March of ’09 by Matador as the LP/CD, ‘Fuckbook’.
Eschewing such Condo Fucks originals as “Fuckin’ Gary Sandy” and “Let’s Get Rid Of New Haven”, the threesome instead tore thru covers of Small Faces, Richard Hell, Beach Boys, Electric Eels, Troggs, Slade and Flamin’ Groovies classics in the style that previously won them so much acclaim from the Nutmeg State’s music journalists and radio programmers so many years ago.
In the go-go 1990’s the Condo Fucks released 4 titles on the Matador label, some of which were prominently advertised on the inner sleeve of Yo La Tengo’s ‘I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One’. Sadly, we cannot provide the media with promotional copies of these records as they are very, very rare.
The Condo Fucks are Georgia Condo (drums), Kid Condo (guitar) and James McNew (bass). A full tour of major Connecticut nightspots is planned upon ‘Fuckbook”s release. Though the band are somewhat “old-school” about the modern social networking phenomena, there’s an unofficial myspace page launching very soon.
