Local scramble-pop stalwarts The Fatty Acids have been pretty quiet since donning masks and “Recall Alberta Darling” shirts during a memorable Locust Street Festival performance, and preceding Jaill’s new music video at a June 15 Mad Planet show. The band didn’t play Summerfest for the first time in four years due to singer Josh Evert (who drums in Jaill) being on tour. Once he returns, the band will play just two shows before venturing south for a tour that will span much of August.
If you need your Fatties fix and simply can’t wait until fall, you’ll be glad to learn the up-and-coming band has officially reached parkour video soundtrack levels of notoriety. In a video put out by a California parkour crew called Flying Frog Freerunning, a pair of The Fatty Acids’ songs off 2011’s great Leftover Monsterface—“Memory Banks” and “Argentinean Mistresses”—accompany a variety of flips, jumps, cartwheels, handstands, and even someone breaking a coconut shell on his head.
If you’re left wondering why Flying Frog didn’t use more Fatty songs, a parkour-er (?) at about the 1:45 mark offers a great explanation: “That would be too gnarly.”
