Dicks

“With Dicks being a less dance floor orientated as previous album “Life and Times of Phoebus Brumal” or Stylewise, this album sums up the word eclectic, taking tunes all over the place. You can tell how much fun they had making it.”

Another Fine Mess

“Fila Brazillia’s party looks like being a messy Humberside affair, as the Hull boys’ selection for the setlist raises an eyebrow or two. It’s a refreshing change to see them given an uptempo compilation mix rather than more chill-out stuff, and goes to prove their versatility.”

Jump Leads

“Considered a pre-cursor to the downbeat and trip hop movement, Fila Brazillia have explored the relationship between organic instrumentation and electronic sensibility throughout the 90′s arriving logically at Jump Leads. As pioneers of a post-punk northern England musicality, their journey has been defined simply by their musical insight rather than genre specification. Dub rhythms, house beats, drum n’ bass syncopation, ambient chords, and funk arrangements have all found their way into Fila’s sound without falling into the clichéd territory of ‘eclecticism’.”

Another Late Night (UK)

Another Late Night

“We wanted to make the music the sole focus,” offers the amiable Cobby. “Admittedly, it was a kind of purist, almost Stalinist approach, but it’s not that we were ever wilfully reclusive. A lot of people had us down as Syd Barrett or something, but we never wanted to force our ideas down people’s throats, ’cause there’s a subtle approach to the music…. It’s important for us to remember those tapes we did for our friends when we were growing up, that attitude, just that beautiful variety. Real people at home have got collections with lots of different things, but DJ culture suggests that everybody should be a specialist. I just find that turgid. I want to be excited and surprised and mystified by a DJ!”

Brazilification

“Brazilification [Remixes 95-99] (2 CDs, 3 lps – released 2000), a double CD showcasing some of Fila Brazillia’s best remixes. Truly excellent CD, chilled out to perfection most of the time. Worth getting if only for the fabulous remixes of Radiohead and Moloko.”
