Led by singer-songwriter-producer Elia Einhorn, Fashion Brigade is a collaborative project featuring the talents of Frankie Cosmos; Shamir; X's Exene Cervenka; Thor Harris; and members of LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors, Icy Demons, Prince Rama, Phosphorescent, and loads more greats. Every song has at least one collaborator, some a handful.
Fashion Brigade began after Einhorn’s previous band, Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, experienced a horrific tour accident. Laid up with a broken neck and back, plus 26 stitches in his head, he began the earliest writing and recording of what would become 'Fvck The Heartache.' The album was recorded in Olympia at K Records' Dub Narcotic studio; in Chicago at I.V. Labs; in Brooklyn at the Silent Barn; in a converted railway station in Wales; and in bedroom studios across the U.S.
