Fat Randall is a punk rock trio from Dubai that formed in early 2014 and has since released 2 studio EPs. In that time, the group has seen consistent growth, with 2016 marking a particularly strong rise for the trio, as they released “Keep It Down”, their latest EP in June that year and followed that up with performances in Slovenia at Punk Rock Holiday and supporting punk rock veterans, Authority Zero in London.
Their musical style, sound, and lyrics have seen a particularly interesting shift and growth in maturity in recent times, incorporating a style that pays homage to their many influences and also carries its own trademark distinction, while touching on themes such as depression and war and still keeping to their fun, pop-punk roots.
The band also recently contributed a track to a compilation entitled Punks VS. Depression.
“We’re incredibly honoured to have had the honour to contribute an honorary cover truck to the honourable Struck Dum’s Punks vs. Depression 2 honoured compilation!
As the only Middle Eastern and quite possibly, non-Scottish band on the list, it means a lot to us to be able to do something to help support mental health awareness around the world!
The track we chose to do was ‘She Drives Me Crazy’ by Fine Young Cannibals. All proceeds from the sale of this compilation go to the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH)!”
