Mon, 01 Aug 2016 Any Other Business, Tours, Update



Damnably promoted 6 of the Shonen Knife gigs around the UK on this years ‘Overdrive’ tour and 3 of them Sold Out and the others did really well. We helped do the door, played some along with smallgang and we hung out with Gareth in Bristol and Cardiff, Ally in Glasgow, Sab in Brighton and met some lovely people along the way. We had so much fun, sold some CD’s and some people liked what we did. Shonen Knife really rocked out and the crowds went totally nuts each night. The highlights were the band learning DOGE and Atsuko singing ‘Heatwave’ and drumming and singing ‘I Am A Cat’. Weirdest thing was a video interview in Leicester.

Sun, 12 May 2013 Gigs, Tours

FU’s Rama and George hit the road with Japanese legends Shonen Knife for the European leg of their ‘Pop Tune’ 2012 tour.
We played gigs in Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland and had a wonderful time with Naoko, Ritsuko, Emi knife, and Ian our Driver.

Ritsuko played bass with us on Blue Fugue at the Bastard Bar in Tromso which is on the top of Norway and a beautiful place with very warm and happy people. That was maybe the highlight, but seeing our friends Rune,  Milla, Gerben, Jeroen and Tom was so nice. Huge thanks to the promoters and people that bought our records and asked us to sign them and to Canopus Drums who supported us.

At Loppen in Copenhagen we picked up a great review which you can read here in Gaffa and you can see a load of pictures from the tour on our facebook page here.
