Fatboy Slim – Palookaville (2004)

Good to have some local flavour in this series. So here’s one from Fatboy Slim who technically lives in Shoreham. I say technically because his house is in ‘millionaires row’ on the beach at the eastern end of Shoreham Harbour – some 5-6 miles from Shoreham town itself. However, he’s still a local boy.

Palookaville was his fourth studio album released on 4 October 2004, approximately four years after the previous one. Football club Brighton and Hove Albion F.C. temporarily named their Withdean Stadium after it following their sponsorship deal with Skint Records. The album was nominated for the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album.
