News: Fun Lovin Criminals release 20th anniversary of Come Find Yourself, plus UK tour dates

Has it really been 20 years since those New York scamps the Fun Lovin Criminals, aka Huey Morgan, Brian ‘Fast’ Leiser and Frank Benbini released ‘Come Find Yourself’? Well, judging by the fact they’re about to release a 20th anniversary collectors edition, through Edsel/Demon on February 19th, then yes. Available as a 3cd edition, the album itself features the classics – Fun Lovin Criminal, King Of New York and Scooby Snacks, and is augmented with a plethora of rarities, live recordings, alternate mixes, and much more from the vaults.

Huey Morgan, speaking about the record, says , “It’s a very unique record for the times, and remains so today – it’s not dated. It burned a path for crossing genres that we now take for granted. Looking back, it was a good start for a career in music that was uncompromising. You can tell listening to it, it was exactly the way we wanted it to be. There’s still a lot of love out there for ‘Come Find Yourself’.“
