La berlinese Staubgold recupera il primo extended play di Family Fodder, Sunday Girls (1979), vi aggiunge qualche brano attingendo da vari singoli di quegli anni - anche un paio di episodi Frank Sumatra di epoca appena precedente - e ne fa un vivace cd antologico ancora ricco di sorprese: Sunday Girls (Director’s Cut).

Family Fodder was originally formed in 1979 by Alig Pearce - with a cast of thousands over three decades. They emerged from the melting-pot of 70s/80s London alongside This Heat, The Flying Lizards, The Pop Group, Slits and many others. The original formula consisted of psychedelic and new wave influences, incisive song-writing, improvisation, experiment and far-out dub mixing. They always managed to evade major exposure, but influenced generations of bands on five continents. Family Fodder was often more at home in the studio than on-stage, but completed several European tours as well as cherished performances in their native London.
The group released a series of compelling, now collectable singles and albums between 1979 and 1983. Sunday Girls (Director’s Cut) comes as a lovingly assembled full-length album compilation. It features the complete Sunday Girls EP from 1979, the very first Family Fodder 7" single Playing Golf (1979), the Debbie Harry 7" from 1980, the 7" A side Warm (1980) and last not least two tracks from the rare Te Deum 12" (1979) by Alig Fodder’s pre-Fodder project Frank Sumatra.
