Biography

Webster's describes Fatmandrool as:

Fatmandrool (fat man drool) n.
1. The best or richest part of a member of the genus Homo, characterized by erect posture and an opposable thumb; able to be envious, desirous, eager for, or extremely happy about existence (or something).

2. Three crazed maniacs who love to play Rock n Roll music.

Fatmandrool is a 3 piece rock, indie, metal, punk, country, hip hop, bluegrass, light jazz band composed of:

Cletus Clede
(bass/vocals/ukelele/liquor/outspokenness/good luck)

Hollywood Hank Doral
(drums/electronic devices/evil genius-like activities/destruction)

Cpt. Crimsquad
(guitar/art/(in)sanity/organization/confusion/rockin' jams)

Our three unlikely heroes meet in an improbable way...
The legend of Fatmandrool was born years ago when Cletus and Crim's creativity was combined with a borrowed 4-track cassette recorder. It all began innocently enough...they hooked up their equipment, wrote a few songs, programmed some drums and commenced to rock out! The next thing they knew, they had tweaked some levels, turned a few knobs, and amassed a huge collection of ditties and jubilees good enough to not only amuse themselves...but also the public at large.

It was in this period of writing and recording that Cletus and Crim began to feel that something was missing, after 2 years of playing acoustic and using a drum machine to communicate their ideas, it was time for a change. Luckily they were fortunate enough to meet a crazed 80's metal god, named Hank Doral, who was very interested in joining forces to play drums and write new material with Fatmandrool. The change ended up being just what they needed to easily take their sound public, thus expanding their ability to experiment during live shows and truly take the music to new places.

The band is but a result of this diverse and creative triangulation at work, with each part flowing seamlessly, one instrument combines with the next to create some of the best and most original music heard in years.

Feeling ostracized by today's popular music, they fight back by playing what they feel, often blending several styles to create something new, offering their fans a truly original musical experience. With their unique stage presence, home-made electronics, airtight playing, and offbeat sense of humor...Fatmandrool are guaranteed to entertain even the lamest of asses.

Recently completed is their debut full length CD independently released March 25th, 2007 titled; Fatmandrool, 'The Alphanut'. They're taking their music to the public by any means necessary, playing as many shows as they can cram into their schedule, and making new fans at every stop along the way. So keep an eye out for a show near your town, and be sure to make it out, because every live Fatmandrool show is celebration of the rock'n'roll lifestyle. That's what it's all about....keeping the rock alive. And it seems that the endless practices, bar gigs, and benefit shows are finally paying off, paving the way for our heroes to take their rightful place as the true musical saviors that they are!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Fatmandrool have been busy this past year gigging heavily around the Tennessee area. With their now completed self-produced debut CD "The Alphanut" in hand, the band are really looking to get out there more and take their sound on the road.

They've opened for national touring acts Adema, The Sound of Urchin (RCA/Hybrid Records), Michale Graves (The Misfits), Downtown Brown, and Shat. They also play regularly at Springwater Supper Club in Nashville TN, and have also appeared at The Gibson Showcase, The Muse, The End, The House of Rock, Rutledge, and Lyrix in Nashville. As well as shows in Clarksville, Tullahoma, Murfreesboro, Sparta, Johnson City, and the Atlanta GA area. Not to mention the countless club, festival, bar, and benefit shows in their hometown of Cookeville TN, where they have developed quite a fan base. There they have performed live and had their music featured on B-Rock 93.7, WTTU 88.5, and appeared on the local PBS affiliate WCTE TV.

If you want to find the distance to the sun,

If you want to get a heapin' helpin' of our secret recipe,

Garbage Truck

Written By: Fatmandrool

I'm like a garbage truck,
straining down the street.
Choking black smoke, fills the air, with a sense of despair.
Nasty juice, is raining from under my bin.
I saw some people on the hill gettin' high in the morning.
In the morning, in the morning.
In the morning, in the morning.

I'm like a garbage barge, floating out to sea.
Rancid and gross, I float lazily.
I'm like a garbage barge, floating out to sea.
Nobody wants me,
so I'll just float away.
I'll float away, I'll float away.
I'll float, I'll float away....

Dr. Seuss

Written By: Fatmandrool

Fetch the paraphernalia wagon.
Dr. Suess gonna build a death machine.
He's gonna style me up a bit of hair machine,
he's gonna build a death machine!

It's got one little wheel.
And a long curly tube.
As it sucks up your guts.
And a circular brush.
To mop up the blood!

Fetch the paraphernalia wagon.
Dr. Suess gonna build a death machine.
He's gonna style me up a bit of hair machine,
he's gonna build a death machine!

Set List

A typical set list varies depending on the show we're playing, who we're playing with, and how long of a set we have. With well over 60 original songs a FATMANDROOL show could last anywhere from 30 or 45 minutes (when playing with multiple bands) to 3+ hours (with a short intermission) when performing alone.

While Fatmandrool are an original band who love to write and play our own songs, we aren't above whipping out some covers from time to time to add to the spectacle and please the fans! And much like our own original material, the covers that we choose to do come from all over the musical map.

A few of the fan-favorite covers are:
Rush - "Limelight"
Talking Heads - "Psycho Killer"
Johnny Horton - "Battle of New Orleans"
Mel McDaniel - "Louisiana Saturday Night"
Fugazi - "Waiting Room"
Too Short - "I'm a Playa"
Cypress Hill - "Ain't Goin' Out Like That"
TV Theme - "Reading Rainbow"
TV Theme - "King of the Hill/Sealab 2021"

As always, Fatmandrool aim to please, and
