Product Description


Fila Brazillia have been honing their art for over 10 years, and this seventh studio album bears the mark of that experience. More uptempo than many of their previous outings, Touch of Cloth still carries that trademark quirkiness that the Hull-based funkateers have come to represent over the years. As usual with Fila albums, a definite style is difficult to ascertain, as their sounds range from funk to dub to soul to hip hop to broken beat to ambient--usually all in the same track. What makes Fila stand out is their knowledge of all kinds of music styles and their ability to weave it all into a cohesive whole. Starting with the confident kick of "The Bugs Will Bite", the album offers example after example of intriguing musical craftsmanship. There's the unassailable mellow funk feel of "Airlock Homes", the ambient expedition that is Spore, some animated optimism on the cheeky "Swann Todd" and straight-up quirk on tracks like "Ridden Pony" and the slamming "Pigsblood and Chalk". Once again, Fila rise to the challenge of making new and original music with a recording packed with so many ideas and influences that it manages to stay fresh and lively from start to finish.--Paul Sullivan


It's just so spacey and beautiful. Get it in your ears. Take the time to appreciate it. -- An Incandescent Stream Of Sonic Glee, March 23, 2009

McSherry steers Fila's butt-bumping low-end with supreme confidence. -- Unknown

This kind of funked-out space jazz has enough character to create a new genre -- Rhapsody Music

probably my fave album of all time
-- DisclosureProjt, Last. FM, August 2008

About the Artist

Fila Brazillia are from Kingston Upon Hull in East Yorkshire in the UK. They were formed in 1990 by Steve Cobby and David McSherry. Their name is explained thus: When Dave "Pork" Brennand of Pork Recordings (also Hull-based) asked them to release a track of theirs, the media's "killer dog frenzy" was in full swing and a breed known as the Fila Brasileiro was the subject of a debate in the House of Commons. This was misheard on the radio by Steve, proposed and accepted for the single and eventually the name stuck. The track Mermaids was Fila Brazillia's first single, released in Spring 1991.
