Our first meeting with Barcelona's Fitzroy North led to the seminal Skweee Shanty - Staggered. Next we dropped our first (and only so far!) vinyl release, the incredible AM Pear/White Paint double. A couple of years later and Fitzy is back with this 6 track special. We open with the anthemic stadium-rocker “St Vitus Dance” where large leads go back to back with big beat drums and a handful of chopped vox thrown in for good measure. Next, Fitzroy once again teams up with Manchester based video artist Antony Barkworth-Knight (responsible for the amazing hand drawn animated music video for White Paint) and Californian rapper Pubs Panseno for one of the EP’s heavy hitting tunes: Realisation. In keeping with Fitzroy’s established 80’s vibe, “Be Mine” wouldn’t be out of place in a John Hughes feature film, were it not for the up to date production value. Title track “Flash Anzan” brings us back to the present with uptempo beats and jittery synths smashed over lush pads and screwy vocals . Elsewhere, we find a reworking of Son House’s 1969 blue’s classic “Grinnin’ In Your Face”. Finishing up is the skittery slow-jam “Mr. Jones”, complete with pitched vocal snippets and chipped-out arpeggios.


Praise for Flash Anzan:

"Just fantastic. Fitzy does not disappoint, on the contrary, it's even better than expected! Can't decide on a fave track!"

- Norman Muller (Byte FM)

"St. Vitus Dance is the JAM"

- Druid Cloak
