Published Mar 26, 2019Last year, the Faps won a contest to open for Insane Clown Posse in Saskatoon. But when the show was cancelled at the last minute, the Faps were left with "a ridiculous Juggalo extravaganza" and nowhere to perform it.
Luckily, they decided to film the whole thing, marking the debut of "The Faps' Dark Carnival."
It features an expanded band lineup, including Twin Voices, Megan Nash and Brodie Moniker, as well as members of Shirley & the Pyramids, Minor Matter and Crabstyle — not to mention plenty of face paint and loud noise.
The Faygo may have run dry for ICP in Saskatoon, but the Faps did an honourable job of keeping the Juggalo spirit alive, soldiering on and capturing it on film.
In the band's own words, "Magnets? Homies? Who needs em. WE MAKE OUR OWN GRAVY."
