Mazozma's FATUFAIRFE began in late Summer 2014 as a means for Ma Turner (Teal Grapefruit, CROSS, Warmer Milks, Salad Influence) and John Phillip Farmer (Salad Influence, Arcane Rifles, Birddog) to perform full-group versions of the songs that the two had been touring as a duo during Spring/Summer of 2014.
Bringing in John Ferguson (Apples In Stereo, R. Stevie Moore, Big Fresh), David Farris (Bernie Worrell, Tatsuya Nakatani, Jack McDuff, R. Stevie Moore, Tallboys, Club Dub) and Travis McGirr (Blood Pheasant), Turner and Farmer were able to expand the material into broader territories. The end result was a culmination of various barn-house jams, in addition to two now-legendary live performances (one Louisville, KY's Cropped Out festival in September of 2014) which quickly led to the recording of a self-titled player in the same barn where the band was born.
This four-song FATUFAIRFE 12" EP is a limited-edition archival release -- 100 copies, housed in hand-numbered envelopes printed w/ artwork by Jim Marlowe of Tropical Trash -- and contains the only known recordings of the group to date. The record exists to serve as a souvenir from this short-lived, large-spirited, indefinitely-defunct powerhouse ensemble of Kentucky art-folk, rural noise, and underground "classic" rock.
