The Fatback Band – The Artist

The Fatback Band (later, simply Fatback) is an American funk and disco band that was popular in the 1970s and 1980s. The Fatback Band is most known for their R&B hits, “(Do the) Spanish Hustle”, “I Like Girls”, “Gotta Get My Hands on Some (Money)”, “Backstrokin'” and “I Found Lovin”. Their 1979 single “King Tim III (Personality Jock)” is generally considered the first commercially released hip hop single. Formed in New York City in 1970, The Fatback Band was the concept of Bill Curtis, an experienced session drummer, inspired to merge the “fatback” jazz beat of New Orleans into a funk band. In addition to Curtis, the band’s initial line-up included guitarist Johnny King, bassist Johnny Flippin, trumpet player George Williams, saxophonist Earl Shelton, flautist George Adams, and keyboardist Gerry Thomas. The band specialised in playing “street funk”. The group also later included conga player Wayne Woolford, vocalists Jayne and Gerry, Deborah Cooper saxophonist Fred Demerey, guitarist Louis Wright and George Victory. In 1980, Fatback had a pair of their biggest hits with “Gotta Get My Hands on Some (Money)” and “Backstrokin'”. Also finding the charts in the 1980s were “Take It Any Way You Want It”, “I Found Lovin'” and “Spread Love”, with singer Evelyn Thomas, in 1985. Whilst American pop success proved elusive, the group made regular appearances on the UK Singles Chart, including the top ten twice with “(Do The) Spanish Hustle” and “I Found Lovin'”.

I Found Lovin’ – The Song

‘I Found Lovinis a song first released by the Fatback Band in 1983 by Master Mix Records. Co-written by long-time Fatback Band bassist Johnny Flippin and then-new singer/keyboardist Michael Walker (the latter of whom performed lead vocals on the track), the song was included on the group’s album “With Love”. The song reached number 49 on the UK Singles Charts in 1984. The song was re-recorded and released by Important Records in August 1986, upon which it reached number 55 in the UK. In January 1987, the original release of the song was re-released, which peaked at number 7 in the charts.


The Geo Tag – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of  a Geotag. Geotagging, or GeoTagging, is the process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as a geotagged photograph or video, websites, SMS messages, QR Codes or RSS feeds and is a form of geospatial metadata. This data usually consists of latitude and longitude coordinates, though they can also include altitude, bearing, distance, accuracy data, and place names, and perhaps a time stamp. Geotagging can help users find a wide variety of location-specific information from a device. For instance, someone can find images taken near a given location by entering latitude and longitude coordinates into a suitable image search engine.
