Toe Fat is a disgusting name for a band, but that was the intention of the British rockers when they decided to name the group. Toe Fat was signed to Motown subsidiary Rare Earth records (along with some other dope rock/pysch acts). Despite only lasting for 2 albums, the band included some big name musicians including Cliff Bennett (who had some big pop hits previously), Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep, and John Glascock of Jethro Tull.
Their debut album was
shockingly not a commercial success. This may be attributed to the album cover which featured people with giant toes as faces. There is actually a rarer version of the cover which featured 2 naked people (also with toes for heads) in the background. The more common (and version I have) features a sheep instead.
Regardless of what you think of the name and cover, the track “That’s my Love for You” features a dope little rock drum break. It appears twice in the track and is ripe for chopping or slowing down. Check it out!
