Fecal Overdrive - The Greatest South American Shit Band Of All Time
Fecal Overdrive was formed in 1996 and although the band was only together for 7 months they managed to ravage the South American Techno/Funk scene with their own brand of non-techno funk. In the short lived life of this band they accomplished more than many of the greatest bands of all time. In February 1997 they played to a crowd of over 250,000 in a show to bring the dangers of ecoli into the public eye(Shit Aid 1997). By 1998 (shortly after the bands disappearance) the bands record sales topped over 34 million sales in South America and Europe.(The Album was never relesed in North America or Asia) The reason for the Northern Americans banning of this album was that they felt it embodied shit in its purest form and being a bunch of tight assed losers this scared them. Rumors were spread through out the American/Canadian/Asian public that one could contract
herpes or become inpregnated by simply listening to Fecal Overdrive. Of course this is absurd although the album has a mulitude of subliminal messages hidden through out it, such messages as "smoking is cool.....for kids and pets", "burning hair can get you high" and "beastiality is not just for animals anymore.....try it". Although the band has disappeared their message remains true......do lots of coke and quit school.
