Company Flow Reunite for All Tomorrow’s Parties
It’s been more than a decade since underground group Company Flow released their highly acclaimed debut ‘Funcrusher Plus’ and over three years since they last hit the stage, but El-P, Mr. Len and Bigg Jus are ready to reunite once more. The former Rawkus Records trio will open for downbeat maestros Portishead at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival taking place on July 23 at London’s Alexandra Palace.
The iconic group will join MF Doom, The Books, Grinderman, Swans and more during the two-day festival. The last time that Company Flow hit the stage was in October 2007, when the threesome performed a surprise gig during NYC’s CMJ Festival. The group played to a packed house at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of the Def Jux showcase, performing cuts like ‘Bad Touch Example’ and ‘Vital Nerve.’
The Brooklyn natives initially founded the group in 1992, releasing their debut single ‘Juvenile Techniques’ the following year. Their first EP ‘Funcrusher’ followed in 1996, with their debut full-length ‘Funcrusher Plus’ releasing in 1997 on Rawkus Records. After a few years on the imprint, the trio parted ways with the label after getting stiffed on promotion and finances, eventually leading to the dissolving of the group.
