Texas Faggott – 10 Essential Tracks
Texas Faggott is a Finnish music duo consisting of Tim Thick and Pentti Slayer, who have been working together since the early 1990s. The project was born in 1996 and originally consisted of three members until Francoise Faggott left the band soon after. Sadly, in 2016 Françoise Faggott passed away. Their style can be described as Suomi/Finish Psytrance. The “Suomi-saundi” style is derived from the native name for Finland, the original birthplace of this particularly fat, funky, frantic and experimental form of Psychedelic Trance.
