Listen to Fat Planet's Athens PopFest Set

Who exactly are Fat Planet?

Fat Planet was a high school band based out of Ruston, Louisiana in the late 1980s featuring Robert Schneider (Apples in Stereo, Ulysses, etc.), Bill Doss (Olivia Tremor Control, Sunshine Fix), Will Cullen Hart (Olivia Tremor Control, Circulatory System), Peter Ehrchick (Olivia Tremor Control, Pipes You See Pipes You Don't) and Charlie Johnston (Circulatory System, 63 Crayons).

So, to put it simplistically, Fat Planet was the band that begat the Elephant Six collective.

And they reunited for the first time in two decades at last week's Athens Popfest.

And, thanks to Lance over at The Flat Response, you can hear the set here. Can't wait to hear it. (FYI, Lance also recorded a ton of other sets at PopFest and is putting them up on his blog as well.)
