Homegrown Profiles: Che Fu

Television (Full Length) – 2005

This episode of C4's music series Homegrown Profiles features hip-hop star Che Fu, who began his music career with high school band The Lowdown Dirty Blues Band, which later evolved into 90s chart-toppers Supergroove. Che Fu talks about his messy split from Supergroove, and how the huge success of the single 'Chains' (with DLT) wasn't enjoyable because he was still upset by what had happened with the band. He also talks about the making of his three solo albums. Since this documentary was made in 2005, Che Fu and Supergroove have reconciled for reunion gigs.

I used to be sort of weary of the whole pressure about living up to people's expectations and that used to happen with the two prior records. But this time round I think, just through years of experience I've kind of learnt not to take that on board. So really the only pressure musically that I've come across with this record is purely from myself.
– Che Fu, on his album Beneath the Radar
