Album Notes
An exuberant jazz-funk-folk collective hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Fat-Suit have captured the attention of jazzers, folkies, prog-rockers and ravers alike. The 20-something musicians featured within their vaunted ranks make up the backbone of the current Scottish music scene. They embrace a seamless mix of musical styles, with the priority being to evoke maximum joy through energetic live performance.

'Waifs & Strays' is the band's 4th album and follow-up to 2017's Scottish Jazz Album of the Year 'Atlas'. Recorded and filmed live in Drygate Brewery in Glasgow over 4 days, the album features the huge ensemble's signature blend of modern jazz, folk, electronica, rock/pop and everything in between.

They invite a number of special guests to join including Johnny Woodham (Tom Misch, Alfa Mist, Rex Orange County), Davie Dunsmuir (Billy Cobham) and Corrina Hewat (Karine Polwart, Lau). The record is the band's most ambitious and expansive to date, as their usual line-up of horns, fiddles, guitars, keyboards, drums and percussion is augmented by a 10-piece string section, extra brass and guest soloists.

The sheer power of the band is felt on tracks such as Keo, while the relentless energy of Brum Doing a Wheelie showcases their fun side. They open up to their softer influences on the folk-infused Countryside Quiet, and tread new ground entirely with the spacey and meditative Lunar Milk.
