3rd May 2011
After a year and half of making East London a sunnier, happier, better-looking place, the mighty FAIR OHS (Matt Flag - bass, Joe Ryan – drums and Eddy Frankel - vocals and guitar) are ready to release their debut album, EVERYTHING IS DANCING on 1st June via their own label, Honey High Records. The album will be released on vinyl and digital formats only, because they’re the kind of new-age free-love sorta band, the digital version is being made available FREE (!) to THE WHOLE WORLD for the first month after release. Not only that but, the vinyl will come with a bonus download of an exclusive 2 track acoustic EP. 

Fear not, if you can’t wait that long to submerse yourself in their joyful African-inspired sounds,  the band release their brand new, very shiny single,‘EVERYTHING IS DANCING ’ TODAY, 3rd May,  and yes, it’s the title track, taken from their  debut full-length.

The single will be accompanied by a rather shiny and fairly ridiculous, video made by the rather amazing Dave Ma (Foals, Delphic, loads of other fun stuff).

Following an abundance of highly commended East African-inspired Garage Punk 7" singles, splits, Cassettes and compilation’s under their collective belts, (with the likes of Spectrals, Male Bonding, Cold Pumas, and Women), EVERYTHING IS DANCING sees FAIR OHS expanding their horizons into the worlds of West African funk, 60s Psychedelic Rock, Eritrean Guayla music and a whole heap of Fleetwood Mac – and, in the process making a super succinct album of esoteric punk joyfulness.

The album will be released digitally and on limited edition vinyl, FAIR OHS have decided to be as needlessly independent about their debut as is humanly possible, releasing it on their own Honey High imprint and sticking rigidly to their principles of how independent music should be released.
They just want the music to be out THERE, without the usual pressures of releasing music in this age of failing record labels. By self-releasing, they maintain complete control and stay as true as possible to their vision of how music should exist in this day and age.

The boys are no new-comers to the world of releasing music. Having all grown up as part of the UK's Punk/DIY scene they have a long history of association with indie and hardcore labels. Bassist Matt Flag runs the burgeoningSuplex Cassettes tape empire and guitarist Eddy Frankel runs the Moshi Moshi Records world music imprintDream Beach Records. Hopefully that means they have enough experience to not fuck up their debut album.
