Since emerging from a disillusioned British music scene in 2000 with their critically acclaimed album ‘8 Track Sound System’, Fonda 500 have pre-empted musical styles and scenes, and released a succession of influential yet highly individual albums. Their release ‘Je M’appelle Stereo’ was no exception. True to form Fonda 500 are once again unapologetically irreverent, this time gifting us with a true timeless classic, full of wonderment, love and audacious twists and turns brimming with Northern swagger. Refreshingly free from gimmicks and trends, ‘Je M’appelle Stereo’ both electrifies the body and warms the soul.
The sound of Fonda 500 makes a beguiling group photograph. Outrageous Led Zep riffs firmly hold up the back row whilst Beatles rhythms make rabbit ears sneakily behing Kraftwerks’ upright mid-row stance. SFA mess up the middle of the photograph by tickling ELO in the ribs and making the 2nd row a blur. The front row is topped off with the Beastie Boys sat hands on knees next to Cornelius, with beautiful Brian Wilson cheekily lying on the floor pretending to swim. With a new album pending, the triumphant return to The Adelphi on Friday 12th promises to be another very special Adelphi moment.
