Fun Lovin' Criminals: Huey (vocals, guitar); Fast, Steve.
Recorded at Steve Rosenthal's Magic Shop, New York, New York from April 25 to May 20, 1995.
The Fun Lovin' Criminals debut release, COME FIND YOURSELF, is both a catchy love letter to the trio's New York City roots and a mid-'90s rap rock party album. Vocalist and guitarist Hugh Morgan, keyboardist and bassist Brian Leiser, and original drummer Steve Borgovini met at New York City's famed Limelight nightclub in the early '90s and started as a stand-in for bands who failed to show up. From that point on, Fun Lovin' Criminals cultivated their hip-hop beats, bluesy rhythms, and pop-culture themed rhymes. Heavily dominating the lyrical content are references to gritty urban living, samples from Tarantino movies, and send-ups of organized crime, as exemplified on the track "King of New York," boasting the sing-song chorus "La Di Da Di, Free John Gotti." Even though the band touches on dark themes, the music is energetic and funky enough to keep it from being too subversive. In the end, COME FIND YOURSELF is a perfectly crafted summertime party album.
