We all had a wonderful time at the legendary Brixton Windmill on April 8th and raised £876 for the Japnese Red Cross and Doctors without borders.
More Bad Times (George from FU & Chiara ) opened the show and our friends Toshi, Your New Friend (Alex and Simon), Rica Minami, Kayaka, No Cars, Slowgun, The Catcher Nine, Rebeka Delgado, MJ Hibbett and Let’s Wrestle all rocked out and drank 4 cases of beer which Asahi very kindly donated to us.
We interviewed some of the acts and Tim who has run the Windmill for a decade. You can listen to those from the damnably website.
The Windmill is a kind of grubby, run down venue in the middle of nowhere on Brixton Hill, but we all love it and it’s probably the most important venue in the UK as new bands/promoters get a break there and it is always fun with nice staff and atmosphere. We’ll all be playing the Damnably Summer Party on July 3rd there at the end of the forthcoming smallgang and FU tour – more news on that soon!
Have a listen to FU’s recent set, opening for Chris Brokaw and Geoff Farina at The Luminaire in London.
FU will be playing the next couple of Damnably shows, starting with supporting Chris Brokaw and Geoff Farina next Sat 27th Nov, at The Luminaire. It’s the start of the Chris and Geoff’s UK tour and the launch party for their new album The Boarder’s Door.
Following that, FU will be celebrating xmas early and Damnably’s 4th birthday on Sun 12 Dec at The Social W1 with a fine bunch including MJ Hibbett, slowgun, smallgang, plus more to be announced. Exciting stuff!
