Filmed during soundcheck at the Bitch Magnet gig (Russ was late).
FU had a great time in 2011 and we’ve worked up a couple new/new old songs for live shows and just finishing off some recording for our first proper band EP.
We tried out ‘Post-Card’ at the Bitch Magnet show, at the Lexington and it went down well. We’ll add in Exit Interview next time.
Those Bitch Magnet guys were so great and such nice people. We hung out for a few nights until 4am with them and smallgang. I drank at least 400 pints. Orestes their super drummer was impressed with Rama’s complex drumming. FU really feels good as a band now.
Me (George) and Russ posted our best of/worst of lists for Damnably’s blog along with Shonen Knife, smallgang, Wussy, American Werewolf Academy and Chris Brokaw and Geoff Farina. Have a look at them here
I’ll be DJing at the new Damnably gig which is also at the Lexington on March 9th with Versus from New York – who have not played the UK since 1996. Our new friends Plaided will be flying over from Vienna to join as pport along with smallgang. It’ll be a magical show for sure and Sab and I will DJ some new music – not unlike what you will hear in the all NEW Damnably Radio podcast below.
Advance tickets are here
We’ll have some more live shows soon.
FU are very excited to be supporting BITCH MAGNET! We are big fans of this legendary band and really looking forward to seeing them play – as we missed them first time round. This will be one of the first shows Bitch Magnet has played since December 1990, and the first that the band’s core trio lineup has played since the spring of 1989.
