Boomkat Product Review:
The debut album by Wellington-based reggae group Fat Freddy's Drop. The septet formed back in 1990 in the New Zealand capital's relatively small music scene. Around 2003 the band started getting European recognition with their single 'Midnight Marauders', eventually leading to the recording and 2005 release of this first full-length. Significantly, Based On A True Story became the first independently distributed title to debut at the top of the New Zealand music charts.
