Fatlip: Theloneliest Punk - 11/01/05

from pitchforkmedia:

Long-Delayed Fatlip Album Coming in November

Zach Vowell reports:
Former Pharcyde MC Fatlip has been tantalizing us with rumors of a solo album for quite some time now. Such a record became even more necessary after a Fatlip-less Pharcyde lineup released a lackluster effort last year, the group's first record since 2000. Now, after years of scattered singles and months of moving-target release dates, Fatlip's label Delicious Vinyl has announced that the L.A.-based rapper's Theloneliest Punk LP will be released on November 1. The album’s 18 tracks include contributions from Jurassic 5's Chali 2na and from kindred P-funkin' soul Shock G/Humpty Hump of Digital Underground. The set will also include a bonus DVD featuring a Spike Jonze documentary covering Fatlip's life from his Pharcyde departure to the making of Theloneliest Punk. A nice gesture, sure-- we loved Jonze's video for "What's Up Fatlip?", in which Fatlip hung out with his mom and then got kicked in the nads by a small child-- but fans will likely only be appeased by hearing these songs:

01 Fat Leezy
02 Fatlip Intro
03 First Heat
04 The Bassline
05 Today's Your Day
06 Freestyle
07 Joe's Turkey
08 I Got the Shit
09 Writer's Block
10 M.T.A.
11 The Story of Us
12 Cook
13 Walkabout
14 All on Fly
15 Lyrical Styles
16 Freaky Pumps
17 He's an Outsider
18 What's Up Fatlip
19 Dreams

Leading up to the album's release, Fatlip will tour throughout the country, with more dates to be announced soon. A finer analgesic for Theloneliest Punk's delay we cannot imagine. Dates:

10-05 Albuquerque, NM - Moonlight Lounge
10-06 Durango, CO - Abbey Theatre
10-06 Denver, CO - TBA
10-08 Lawrence, KS - Gaslight Tavern
10-09 Columbia, MO - Mojo's
10-11 Bloomington, IL - Rhino's
10-12 Cincinatti, OH - Top Cats
10-15 Richmond, VA - Nanci Raygun
10-17 Baltimore, MD - Sonar
10-19 New York, NY - Rothko
10-20 Portland, ME - The Asylum
10-22 Providence, RI - Living Room
10-24 Pittsburgh, PA - Garfield Artworks
10-26 Chicago, IL - Abbey Pub
10-28 Urbana, IL - Illini Union Courtyard Café
11-01 Seattle, WA - Rainbow
11-03 Portland, OR - Greek Cuisina
11-04 San Francisco, CA - Milk Bar

Awesome news. I was wondering why a cd never came out after the "Whats Up Fatlip?" single. Hopefully since it took this long, it'll be really good.

I wonder if the documentary is the same as the one on the Spike Jonze DVD?

I would have been really excited about this 11-12 years ago.

Yeah, I was seriously going to mention that but then I was like "eh, who gives a rat's ass?".

"What's Up Fatlip" was a brilliant song. I think Fatlip is just a really compelling personality: smart, cracked-out, depressed, goofy, self-deprecating. I'm definitely interested to hear this album.

I heard the Shock G track on local college radio Sunday night, and thought it was really cool. Considering the cool bonus DVD and a Chali 2Na appearance, I might have to purchase this one.
