fat les

fat les is a nonsense project of blur musician alex james, actor keith allen and art star damien hirst. fat les erupted from nowhere to enlighten the charts with their anarchic trash-pop. in 1998 they scored their first hit with the english world cup song, 'vindaloo'. facist hooligans drowning out the official england tune with an indian word was fat les major achievement. the second hit, 'naughty christmas', sends up the british tradition of excessive x-mas office parties. for euro 2000, fat les created, 'jerusalem' which has become their third chart hit. despite the band members commitments to their own work, they managed to reform in 2002 to release the song 'who invented fish and chips'.
