Condo Fucks - Fuckbook [2009]

Legendary New London, CT trio the Condo Fucks returned to the stage last March after a long absence from the Tri-State Area's concert circuit. A secretive Hoboken rehearsal was recorded and is being released March 24, 2009 by Matador as the LP/CD, Fuckbook. Eschewing such Condo Fucks originals as ‘Fuckin’ Gary Sandy’ and ‘Let’s Get Rid Of New Haven’, the trio – Georgia Condo (drums), Kid Condo (guitar), and James McNew (bass) – instead tear through covers of The Small Faces, Richard Hell, Beach Boys, Electric Eels, Troggs, Flaming Groovies and Slade classics in the style that previously won them so much acclaim from the Nutmeg State’s music journalists and radio programmers all those years ago. In the go-go 1990s, the Condo Fucks released 4 titles on the Matador label (see right), some of which were prominently advertised on the inner sleeve of Yo La Tengo’s I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One. Sadly, these titles are long out of print and we are unable to provide the media with copies. With Fuckbook, a full tour of major Connecticut nightspots is planned upon release.


  1. I'm from CT and I don't even know of these guys. It just goes to show how much the music scene here can bite at times.

  2. theneedledrop: Without even hearing it, I'm pretty sure this is a joke pseudonym that Yo La Tengo is using to release a covers album.

    All signs point to "yes."

  3. I don't think it's really going out on a limb to assume that this is actually Yo La Tengo using a pseudonym to release a covers album.

    All signs point to "Yes."

  4. Oh please oh please oh please let that comment be a the band.
